It’s that time of year again, when the Santa Train pays a visit to West Princes Street Gardens. Edinburgh Spotlight visited this morning, despite it being a very foggy day.
The train made it’s first journey of the season shortly after 10am. Carols played out of the speaker system getting all the passengers in a festive spirit. The cost of the fare is £2 for adults and £1.50 for children, which is pretty reasonable for a tour around the Gardens.
The train snakes away and around the back of Santa’s Igloo, up past the play park and right along to the end of the gardens, before turning back towards the Ross bandstand, past the Ross fountain back to the start.
It’s extremely popular with adults and the children, with the added bonus that the train driver has a uncanny resemblance to Santa himself.
Well worth the money for this trip when compared to the same price for one slide down the Helter Skelter. Runs from 12th to 23rd December 10am-6pm. No delays or track works expected!
