Who hasn’t dreamed of getting their hands on the controls of a steam locomotive? Well, now you or a loved one can!
Taking the reins of a narrow gauge steam locomotive in the heart of the Forest of Dean, you’ll get to grips with how these marvels of our engineering past work. Then, you’ll get to try your hand at tackling the steep gradients of our railway with a short goods train. Can you make it to the top?
You’ll be accompanied by a friendly, helpful, knowledgeable instructor to give you the best possible experience.
We offer three variants of course – one hour, one and a half hours and two hours. The longer the course, the longer you get in the ‘hot seat’.
Our two hour courses include driving two steam locomotives – we reckon that’s twice the excitement!
One adult can join the participant on the site for their experience to take photographs and mark the occasion.
Vouchers are valid for 18 months. Your payment will appear as Perrygrove Railway on your bank statement.
Minimum age 18.
One hour courses are £99.
One and a half hour courses are £149.
Two hour courses are £175.
The locomotives used for this experience are Spirit of Adventure, Lydia and Anne.
These experiences are great as presents, retirement gifts or to mark special birthdays. A wonderful time, full of happy memories, must be one of the best gifts imaginable. Vouchers are valid for 18 months, so don’t worry about committing your loved one or colleague to a specific date.
You can purchase additions to the package such as a framed art print of the locomotive you drove or an afternoon picnic hamper to enjoy on our beautiful site.
