Santa Train – Christmas Eve

As a nice build-up to Christmas we decided to take a trip on Christmas Eve on the Santa Train special at Caledonian Railway in Brechin.  Here’s a selection of photos:

Getting ready to set off

And we're off

Someone was very sceptical about Santa

Although not so bad once he got sat down

Presents certainly went down well

The miniatures for the adults were a big hit with the kids!

Too big a hit for someone!!!

Searching for more booze I suspect!

Just as we were leaving the train was about to set off on the final train of the day and the year

Plus I ended up taking a shot that I love whilst on this day out, so much so I think it’s my personal favourite shot of 2011. I know I’ve taken more technical shots but this one includes my favourite subject so sways my decision.  Here it is:

It was a great day out and I would recommend it to anyone for next year, or even the other events this railway (run by volunteers) does throughout the year.

Note – yes this post is a bit late but given the busy festive period means I’m playing catchup on my photo editing and bloging
