All aboard the The Polar Express™ Train Ride this Christmas as the Mid-Norfolk Railway announces that this year's tickets will be going on sale via the railway's website from 10am on Tuesday 22nd March.
Do you believe? Will you be joining The Polar Express™ Train Ride as it travels to the North Pole to meet Father Christmas? Trains will be running from November right through to Christmas. Details will be on the railway's website at www.midnorfolkthepolarexpressride.com
Prior to general sales, those who booked for the final week of the 2021 season, which was cancelled due to Covid-19, will be emailed with instructions on how to get priority booking for this year's tickets from 10am on Monday 21st March to 9:30am on the following day.
This year, the cast for The Polar Express™ Train Ride will once again be overseen by MNR Theatrical Director, Paul Andrew Goldsmith of the Twisted Reality Theatre. Again, the trains will be made up of the railway's ex-Greater Anglia Mark 3 coaches that have all been refurbished.
The former airline-style seating has been removed and four-seat bays around a table refitted for all standard-class seats. Premium tickets will once again be available to travel in the former first-class coaches for those wishing for a little extra.
"This is an important day for the railway, as the revenue we receive from The Polar Express Train Ride experience forms a vital part of the railway's income that ultimately pays for the railway. "The refurbished coaches, with the return to the original seating arrangement, proved to be a great success and made the coaches significantly more family-friendly and we are sure it enhanced The Polar Express Train Ride experience for all of our passengers." Charlie Robinson, Chairman Mid-Norfolk Railway Preservation Trust
This year's The Polar Express™ Train Ride will begin at Dereham station, where passengers will be transported into the magical world of The Polar Express™, before being invited aboard the train by The Conductor. On the journey look out for the Hobo and the Chefs amongst others before you get to see the "Big Man" himself if you truly believe
