Have a taste of driving our Diesel Multiple Unit on the main line!
Join our crew in the cab and see how they operate their wonderful DMU, with hands on tuition from our experienced Driver, before taking the controls yourself.
Please note: both dates for our DMU Taster sessions are now full!
Did you sit behind the driver on a Diesel Multiple Unit as a child, looking through the big cab windows wishing you could go ‘up front’?
Did you do the same once you’d ‘grown up’, while you were commuting to work?
Well now we can give you the chance to fulfil your ambition!
Our DMU Driver Taster Session gives you the opportunity to ride with the Driver and watch how to control the train, before you get the chance to drive over the steeply graded route yourself.
Our experienced driver will explain exactly what to do and how things work, then you’ll be shown how to operate the controls and ultimately take charge of the train, fulfilling that childhood goal!
Our DMU Driver Taster Session lasts one and a half hours as you:
All participants will receive 2 free day rover tickets for family and friends, plus a commemorative certificate and gift from the ESR on completion of your experience.

We are unable to accept alterations within 21 days of booked date. If an alteration to the booked date is necessary prior to 21 days an administration fee of £40 will be required.
