The Experience

Have you ever fancied driving a Steam Train? This fantastic introductory Steam Train driving day based in Kent gives you this unique opportunity. You'll learn the basic skills needed to drive a steam locomotive, and, as the day goes on, you'll develop your skills and get the once-in-a-lifetime chance to 'buffer up' the engine to a 20-ton brake van.
 
You'll start the day off at around 9:00 am at Rolvenden Station in Kent where your morning will consist of a breakfast bap and cup of tea along with a short safety briefing and then it's straight on to the hands-on part of your Steam Train driving day! Guidance will be given to each participant by a knowledgeable instructor to ensure your confidence builds throughout the day.
 
After lunch, which is included in the price of your voucher, and then it's back to the fun of driving a steam train locomotive. You will also get a visit to the Signal Box and a tour of the locomotive yard and repair shed. At the end of the day, you'll receive a certificate of achievement along with a souvenir tee shirt and mug!
