Under expert tuition you’ll be given an introduction to our Class 31 diesel locomotive and safety briefing before taking to the loco to learn the skills involved. Then, you’ll take the controls and drive the locomotive yourself, hauling a rake of passenger coaches. You’ll also act as secondman on one of the journeys.
Light refreshments will be provided.
At the end of your time with us you’ll receive a commemorative certificate and gift pack of information about the railway. You’ll also receive a year’s membership to the Avon Valley Railway.
To keep our customers safe, each family group will be seated in separate compartments. Please select a carriage and then click on an available compartment. Choose your first seat and you'll then notice that all the remaining seats in that compartment become highlighted, so that no one else can book them.
Then, just choose the different tickets you need for each of your group from the drop down lists. For any spare seats simply choose the option 'seat not required'
Please note that we operate our heritage diesel trains on Saturdays and Steam on Sundays.
