Introductory Footplate Experience . . .
£375 per person
This, our most popular Experience, has been specifically
designed for those with an interest in steam locomotive operation. The
locomotive hauls one passenger carriage in which up to four guests can
travel free of charge to share in your Experience. Operating on a morning or afternoon, this Experience gives you the opportunity to take control of one our small or large steam locomotives for 8 miles, driving and firing.
Locomotives normally used on the Introductory Footplate Experiences: 813, 1450, 1501 or
7714 (subject to availability).
Whilst all Footplate Experiences in 2020 have been cancelled, you can still purchase a gift voucher for 2021.
