Perfect for a total beginner, take control of a truly impressive, historic steam engine locomotive without carriages and experience something absolutely unforgettable. For a train enthusiast, this is a dream come true – with an expert crew on board to help and one-on-one tuition behind the controls. Journey for 12 miles at the helm of the train, taking in the beautiful sights of Churnet Valley along the way – it’s an incredible feeling.
