A light show on a steam train, featuring, 13,174 fully controllable LED lights, is travelling up and down a 10-mile train line, bringing festive joy to audiences.

Launched by The Watercress Line, Steam Illuminations, the LED train, is carrying passengers and running until January 3.

Steam Illuminations has partnered with Purple Lighting to deliver the festive spectacle to audiences. Everyone onboard the train is given an LED wristband to wear so that they can be part of the show.

Popular and traditional Christmas songs play along with the lights and guests are given the change to see the outside of the train at the start, middle and end of their journey to capture it by camera.
