Santa has put out an urgent appeal for helpers to assist Llangollen Railway with making its Christmas Special services a success.
Mike Dodgson, volunteer co-ordinator for the Trust Board that has taken over the running of the heritage attraction, said: "The Santa season is back and we are appealing for volunteers.
"Normally we cope with regular station and annual helpers to cover these services but this year is very different as we are very depleted in these areas.
"So this is a call to everyone who cares about Llangollen Railway to help to run the service this year successfully and cater for our customers who expect us to deliver a good experience.
"There will be one train in service, running three services each day, over 11 days.
"This year we are only handing out Christmas presents on the train itself. There will be no Baileys or mince pies."
Dates for the Santa Special services are:
- Sat/Sun 4th/5th December
- Sat/Sun 11th/12th December
- Sat/Sun 18th/19th December
- Wed/Thu/Fri 22nd/23rd/24th December
