Have you ever wanted to experience the thrill of driving a steam train or maybe the power of a mighty diesel locomotive?
Maybe you know a train enthusiast who would?
Now you and another participant will drive and fire for 6 trips over a 4km section of our branch line covering a total distance of approximately 50km!
You will be given an initial safety briefing before assisting with lighting the fire and oiling/greasing the locomotive.
While the engine is raising steam, your crew will explain to you the various aspects of firing and driving a steam train.
At the start of the day, you will be given a drivers cap to wear on the day and then keep as a souvenir. At the end of the day, you will be presented with a certificate to commemorate your experience!
