MELKSHAM'S Santa Special leaves the station at just after 3pm on Sunday, December 15.

The annual train ride to Swindon and back has been organised by the Melksham Rail Users Group with help from Great Western Railway.

During the hour-long trip, Santa will be on hand to give presents to all the children on board, and there will be mince pies and soft drinks available.

Tickets are £10 per adult and £5 per child.
