A FEW seats are still available for the festive 'Steam and Lights' train s that are running on the Swanage Railway.

The Christmas services are due to start on December 5, just after the UK is set to come out of national lockdown.

A Swanage Railway spokesman said: "We are continuing with our preparations and are keeping our fingers crossed that we will be able to operate the planned services after the lockdown ends.

"We have implemented all the recommended Covid safety measures and social distancing with reduced passenger numbers is being implemented on all our services."

Those that have already booked for Steam and Lights but want to add picnic boxes and drinks can add them to their booking this week. Picnic boxes and drinks will not be available to purchase on the day.

For the remaining seats (most of them are for tables of two) or to book picnic and drinks call the reservations team on 01929 425800.
