Steam Engine Driving Experience

 

Ever wanted to drive a steam locomotive? This is your chance!

See 'here'  for more details, and below for available dates and to book online!

 --------------------------------------------

Why not take control of one of our steam engines under the supervision of our experienced drivers and firemen?

The Ecclesbourne Valley Railway Association is offering one and two-hour driving experiences on one of our 'Andrew Barclay 0-4-0' steam engines at Wirksworth Station.

The experience will involve firing and driving the steam engine in the yard and on the unique 1:27 incline to Ravenstor – the steepest heritage railway line in the country.

  • One-hour experiences cost £160 and two-hour experiences are £220

 

Friends and family can ride in the brake van coupled to the engine so that they can share the experience!

For further details please contact:   experienceevra@outlook.com

 

You can also buy online using the form below - you will then be contacted to arrange a date.

Dates for 2020 will be available soon.

This is what you could be doing!
