Diesel Driver Experience
Diesel Driver Experience

Come and experience our heritage railway as you take the controls and drive one of our diesel locomotives.

There are two participants per session and on our morning one you’ll meet the crew over breakfast in our café and be given an introductory briefing covering what to expect, safety and how a diesel locomotive works.  You’ll then split up with one of you being aboard the cab to drive the locomotive yourself (under expert supervision of course!) for one round trip of the line.  You’ll then swap over and spend a second trip with the Guard understanding this aspect of our train operations.  Afterwards you’ll enjoy lunch in our café with the crew and meet the afternoon participants who will be eager to hear your stories of your time onboard.

For the afternoon session you’ll do exactly the same, but enjoy lunch first followed by coffee and cake at the end of your time with us.

The duration of this experience is 3½ hours
