Luke Hudman, marketing manager at the NYMR said: “It’s a fantastic event that just makes you smile from the moment you see the train - even the grown-ups.

"Seeing people dancing and singing along on board brightens up those dark nights.

"We were already being asked about tickets before we opened this year, so I recommend you book yours early.”
