Steam Illuminations come to the Watercress Line


Hampshire’s heritage Watercress Line will be staging a new event this winter – Steam Illuminations, a digital LED train that creates an incredible light show both on and in the steam train.

Consisting of thousands of fully controllable colour mixing LED lights and LED wristbands, the lights are programmed to perform a spectacular light show, consisting of different colours and flashing patterns.

Everyone will be given an LED wristband to wear on the train to be part of the show and may take them home after the event.

The event will start on 14 November and run through to 3 January. Trains will depart from either Alresford or Alton and complete a round trip, back to the starting station. Tickets will need to be booked in advance.
