The weather may not be quite cold enough to be described as arctic, but that hasn't stopped the launch of a unique train ride in Devon which has a distinctly chilly theme.

The Polar Express made its UK debut in the beautiful setting of the Dartmoor Railway.

Departing from the Okehampton Station, the train ride was inspired by the hit animated movie, based on the award winning book by Chris Van Allsburg.

Up until now, the cry All Aboard The Polar Express has only been heard on the other side of the Atlantic, in America but families in Britain can now climb aboard the train for the specially-themed journey.
