Families enjoyed a day of festive fun at a railway museum on Sunday.

Rocks by Rail in Cottesmore held a Christmas fun day for visitors which included a steam train ride to the museum’s North Pole, the chance to post a letter to Santa from the train, a visit to Santa’s workshop and a Christmas treasure trail.

Museum secretary Simon Layfield said: “It was a very good day and we had a great turnout.”

The event is also being held on Sunday from 11am. Entry is £6 for adults and £3 for children.
