We want these journeys to be awe-inspiring and to spark the imaginations of adults and children alike. We use a system developed in-house that uses GPS to trigger LED lighting on all sides of the trains and specific scenes along the railway line for a journey that is constantly animated by out of this world colours, atmosphere, and light. We chose lighting technology that could withstand the constant movement and vibrations of a moving train, and any weather events that might occur during the journey. We also had to select LED lighting that we could fit easily and safely onto the train. As we were using so many lights that had to be powered along the full length of a train, we were conscious throughout the design and implementation process to use energy-efficient tech.
Our winter illuminations have proven such a success over the years that we have added two more railways to our annual offering. This means we are now offering a package of six different railways lit up by beautiful illuminations across the UK. Every route is an absolute marvel to see, with the beautiful blend of vibrant light and the ethereal sight of multi-coloured steam floating in the night sky a real sight to remember.
