16th Jun 2024
Steaming for Fifteen

FANCY A TASTER OF WHAT IT IS LIKE TO DRIVE A LOCOMOTIVE? WELL YOU CAN WITH OUR Steaming for Fifteen ON SELECTED DAYS.

For just £15 you can take the control of a steam locomotive in the sidings.

STEAMING FOR FIFTEEN IS  RUN WITH THE SMALL ENGINE, LADY NAN 

Our general advice is that children under 5 are likely to be a bit frightened, so we don’t recommend Driver for a Tenner for them. Children between 5 and 16 years can do it providing they are accompanied by a responsible adult and it is always at the Driver’s discretion.

There is a maximum of two visitors to travel on the locomotive.

Visitors must be able to mount and dismount to/from the footplate, about 3 foot, via three vertical steps without assistance from the crew. This experience is therefore not appropriate for some people with limited mobility.

The drivers decision to accept or reject persons onto the footplate must be accepted. If a pre-purchased ticket is refused, a refund will be available from Cranmore Station.
