It is with a very heavy heart that we have to announce the cancellation of the Santa Express trains from Edinburgh Waverley around the Fife Circle on Saturday 11 and 18 December 2021.
Following on from First Minister Nicola Sturgeon’s announcement on Friday 10 December, and having spoken to our partners, we feel it is only right to cancel the services. We have to put the health of our customers, staff, volunteers, and of course, Santa and his elves, first.
We know this will come as a huge disappointment to you, your friends and family. We all share that disappointment as we were all really looking forward to welcoming you onboard.
Everyone who has booked will receive an email outlining how they can claim their refund, or, should they wish, to donate their fare to the Railway Children charity.
Santa had arranged for some very special gifts for our younger passengers and we will be donating these to a number of children's hospitals and hospices across Scotland, to ensure that they are put to good use.
