‘Night Train to Vegas’ and ‘Wonderland Express’ packages available this festive season

The National Railway Museum in York has released dates throughout November and December for its two themed Christmas party packages for 2014: ‘Night Train to Vegas’ and ‘Wonderland Express’.

‘Night Train to Vegas’ offers a luxury four-course dinner and a night of dazzling entertainment, from Rat Pack-style tribute singers and a close-up magician to glamorous Vegas showgirls. The package also includes a DJ and casino tables with croupiers.

‘Wonderland Express’ includes a sumptuous all-you-can-eat hot festive buffet and DJ entertainment for guests to dance the night away among the spectacular carriages, including railway legends Mallard and Queen Victoria’s ‘Palace on Wheels’, in Station Hall.

Alan Cass, sales manager at the National Railway Museum, said: “Themed Christmas packages such as Night Train to Vegas and Wonderland Express work beautifully at the National Railway Museum as the locomotives really add to the setting. Our past Christmas party nights have been hugely successful and we anticipate a high demand for this season’s festive packages.”
