One Day Driving Experience
The 1 Day Steam Locomotive Driving Experience offers an ideal introduction to the mysteries of the steam engine and provides ample opportunities for you to have a go at both light engine and passenger train type operation.
Two Day Driving Experience
The 2 Day Steam Locomotive Driving Experience provides participants with a greater degree of information about the workings of the steam engine and its associated equipment, as well as providing an insight into the operation of our busy railway. All of this theory is backed up with practical demonstrations and plenty of ‘hands on’ experience.
Advanced Driving Experience
The 1 Day Advanced Steam Locomotive Experience is designed to give further practical experience for those who have completed either the One or Two Day experiences above. This includes 18 miles at the controls, hauling a double headed, empty coaching stock train.
Gold Driving Experience
The 1 Day Gold Driver Experience is designed to give practical experience to those who have completed any of the experiences above, or merely for those who want one-to-one tuition from an instructor. You will have 36 miles at the control.
Both 1 Day and 2 Day Experiences include a buffet lunch at Aylsham and there are no hidden extras to pay.
