Driving Courses

Have you ever wanted to drive a steam train? 

Why not try our new taster sessions, which allow you to experience first hand how amazing these locomotives really are! 

Spend an hour on the footplate with our friendly crew, who will guide you through the workings of a steam locomotive, giving you the opportunity to try your hand at driving and firing! 

After your taster session you will then be able to spend the rest of the day here, enjoying our 25-acre heritage site, with as many passenger train rides as you like! Your taster session includes entry for you and one guest, who can watch whilst your experience takes place and can then enjoy the rest of the day onsite with you. Participants must be a minimum of 18 years old.

With limited availability, pre-booking is essential.
