SPECTACULAR digital LED lights and steam are again combining the old and the new on the Watercress Line this Christmas.

Steam Illuminations sees historic steam locomotives chug from Alresford to Alton and back while thousands of fully controllable colour mixing lights create flashing patterns inside and outside the train in time with passengers’ LED wristbands.

Photos of the outside of the train can be taken at the start, middle and end of the 10-mile return journey, which takes in the footbridge at Ropley used in the Harry Potter films.

Steam Illuminations continues until January. For tickets visit https://watercressline.co.uk/steam-illuminations
