Easter Special 2017

 

We had more passengers than Northern’s 2 carriage train could cope with for this year’s Easter special.

Despite not being able to get down the train at times we still made sure that all the children got a small egg as they got off the train at Scarborough.

Four prize draws were done at different stages of the journey for passengers to win large Easter eggs.
