SANTA CLAUS has come to Fort William early this year, travelling by steam train instead of a sleigh.

Santa and his elves boarded the famous Jacobite train this morning (Tuesday December 20).

The Christmas Santa special, operated by West Coast Railways, will help families embrace the festive season by taking them from Fort William to Glenfinnan on morning and afternoon trips over the next few days.
