The plan is to offer this experience to over 18's as an add on to the hire day or to attend a driver experience day at a venue we have partnered with.
For both options we would charge £70, and we envisage the experience day to run as follows:
As an Add on
At a private event a time will be agreed as to when the experience will begin. Note that during this time the only passenger that can be carried is a member of our staff. This is for insurance reasons. The experience will involve setting up the locomotive for running, coupling the driving coach and passenger coach, pre-start checks, a run through of the controls, and an hours running time. Finally how to shut down the locomotive for disassembly.
At a charity event this experience could be raffled and either take place on the day, or at one of our venues.
In both cases the experience will including souvenir certificate, t-shirt and photograph.
At one of our partner venues
In this case, the experience would last all day - the timing of which would depend on the owners of the venue. Lunch will be included. We will endeavour to book the closest venue to you on a day to suit. Other than that the experience will run as above, including souvenir certificate, t-shirt and photograph.
