There’s a Christmas treat in store for families taking a train trip through Fenland on Saturday, December 12.

Santa Claus and his helpers will be on board for two return journeys from Ely to Peterborough and will be strolling up and down the train handing out mince pies and small presents for children.

The Santa train has been organised by the Hereward Community Rail Partnership, in partnership with train operator Abellio Greater Anglia.

Santa will start his first journey at Ely at 10.58am on the train that calls at Manea, March and Whittlesey before arriving in Peterborough at 11.39am. He will then take the 11.50am train back to Ely, arriving there at 12.32pm.

On his second return trip he will leave Ely at 12.58pm, getting to Peterborough at 1.39pm, before heading back on the 1.50pm service which is due into Ely at 2.32pm.

Volunteers from the Friends of March Railway Station will be assisting on the day.
