A Chiltern Railways train has been transformed into the UK's fastest sleigh ahead of Christmas. 

The Chiltern Santa Train has been unveiled as the latest addition to the train company's fleet and will fly down the track at 100 miles per hour. 

Conceived as part of Chiltern's push for the UK to get festive, the company got specialist train sleigh makers, Charles Rayner Ltd, to install a magical vinyl wrap of Santa's sleigh on one of its silver trains. 

It took two days for the transformation to be completed and the design will feature on the Chiltern line until after Christmas. 

The company is also planning to spread festive cheer with carolling at different stations and Santa's elves have been recruited to help customers.
