Steam Loco No 10 G. H. Wood at Santon Station, Isle of Man.
Santon Station is a request stop near Newtown in the parish of Santon. It forms part of the sole remaining line of the Isle of Man Railway which once encompassed over 46 miles of network and retains its original station building. The halt played host to Santa's Grotto each December as part of the railway's Santa Trains service for many years until 2009. The station was opened in 1874 and closed in 1958. Locomotive No. 10 G.H. Wood built in 1905 has just arrived at the station.
