Driver Experience




Sit in the drivers seat with your hands in control of a heritage mainline diesel locomotive, be part of the locomotive crew together with a qualified and experienced driver / secondman to aid your day and allow you to enjoy the experience safely with us. For £280 you get a full days experience with a selected mainline diesel, taking it in turns to experience being a Driver, secondman and guard. Feel the power of our heritage diesels on gradients as steep as 1:37 with miles of steep banks to climb on our two lines in mid Cornwall. Click on the youtube windows below to see some of the experiences from a previous driver experience course (With thanks to Kevin Tregunna for 37142 footage).

Driver Experience dates are usually available during the Spring / Autumn each year and a few summer dates.
