A GROUP of girl guides from Morpeth enjoyed a unique Christmas party on board a steam train.
The Santa Special took members of the Rainbow girl guides along the Tanfield railway line in North Durham.
As well as enjoying party games, the girls also got the chance to speak to Santa. The trip was organised by Girlguiding North East England for Rainbows across the region.
Rainbow leader Carolyne Hobson said: “It was a really magical experience.
‘‘Meeting Santa was so exciting for the Rainbows.”
