2018 Driver Experiences are currently sold out
Middy driver experiences are very popular and at present we have no more availability for 2018. For future dates information will be posted as soon as possible on this web site. The description of the package follows below.
The Mid-Suffolk Light Railway offers you the chance to take the controls of a steam locomotive on our demonstration line.
Afternoon driver experience
If you want to take control of one of our engines for a few hours, both light engine and with a passenger train along the whole of our line. Any running day from May to August – you will arrive and be given a safety briefing and an introduction to the loco, involving riding on the footplate with our experienced crew. Once public services have finished you take a turn as fireman and then as driver with the coaches still attached. After a short break, you will then fire and drive again without the coaches. As part of the course, you will get a certificate as a memento of your day and 12 month’s automatic membership.
Booking for this experience must be done in advance as early as possible using the contact details below or this booking form. There is only one space available on each course so early booking is essential.
