I especially meant my department on train buffet staff manning the trolleys on these evening trips. Though I can't believe many people will have spare money for anything we will be serving the complimentary drinks etc.

We still have some tables available on this service, as well as seats on our weekend Santa Steam Specials and weekday Santa Heralds
