Steam Advanced

The Package

Our advanced course is an in-depth experience of over 3 hours for 2 participants. The participants will have hands on experience of sharing the driving and firing of a passenger or freight train for a distance of approximately 30 miles. Participants will be given membership of the railway, provided with drinks and a meal and be awarded a certificate to commemorate their participation. Participants should ideally have completed our starter course.

The Price
