Citizens’ Rail supports Santa Special

Thursday, November 13 th, 2014 · no Comments · In
Citizens’ Rail is lending a helping hand to First Great Western’s charity fundraising Santa Special train from Newton Abbot station in Devon.

On Sunday 21st December Santa is visiting the Newton Abbot to Heathfield railway, the former ‘Teign Valley’ Heathfield line. First Great Western are working with Network Rail, the Devon and Cornwall Rail Partnership (Citizens’ Rail’s lead partner) and the Dame Hannah Rogers Trust to put on this very special event.

Citizens’ Rail’s Riviera Line Officer has helped to recruit volunteers to help at the event. The Friends of Dawlish and Teignmouth Stations and rail user groups will be joining First Great Western to give away free mince pies and talk to passengers about great value days out by train.

Tickets for these exciting trips are set to sell out quickly and all proceeds will be donated to the Dame Hannah Rogers Trust.

From Wednesday 19th November, tickets will be available from the booking office at Newton Abbot on a first come, first served basis (cash only).
