Come and have a whole day driving one of our steam engines - all to yourself!

We take you through the complete process of lighting up, raising steam and driving a train.

You can shunt carriages and wagons in the sidings, and then run them on the main line.

Why not invite your family and friends for a ride on the train while you take the controls!

You also receive (as well as lunch!):

- a certificate of achievement

- a year's Honorary Membership of the Railway.

Driver experience days are available for individuals and for groups of two, three or four.

The cost is £200 for one person and £50 for each extra person.

If you are celebrating a birthday or other special occasion, you can combine driving an engine with a party in the engine shed.
