Driver for a Tenner

Fancy a taster of what it is like to drive a locomotive? Well you can with our Driver for a Tenner on selected days.

For just £10 you can take the control of one of our diesel locomotives on the sidings and receive a certificate.

DRIVER FOR A TENNER IS NORMALLY RUN WITH THE SMALL ENGINE, LADY NAN BUT DUE TO LADY NAN BEING OVERHAULED IN 2017 WE WILL BE RUNNING IT WITH A LOVELY DIESEL LOCOMOTIVE INSTEAD. WE APOLOGISE FOR ANY DISAPPOINTMENT CAUSED AND HOPE TO GET LADY NAN BACK RUNNING AS SOON AS WE CAN.

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.
