My daughters and I had bought a one-day steam-train driving course for my husband and he chose to wait until the end of May. We were very lucky to have a fine, sunny day, so that my daughters and I could sit watching the proceedings and having a 'catch-up'.
Meanwhile, my husband was having the time of his life! He and his fellow students were given full instructions on how to drive the small, but manageable, engine for ever increasing lengths of time until, after lunch, they each drove the full length of the line.
Can't praise the set-up enough - the instructors, all experienced railway men, were competent and cheerful and made sure that the students enjoyed the learning process.
If you, or a loved one love steam trains and fancy a go, book this course and you can't go wrong.
