This little train needs some more drivers for the new year.

The green and yellow train, complete with a working bell, was unveiled at NGH last week and will transport younger patients around the hospital.

Bosses of the facility say the train will make the experience of being in hospital a lot less daunting for youngsters.

Although the train is already in use, recruitment for volunteers to keep the it running is now underway.
