Courses Available

Our 2018 courses are completely SOLD OUT! Our 2019 program will be released on the 1st Oct, 2018.



This course offers one to one tuition on driving and firing our 2 ft narrow gauge steam tram. By concentrating on manoeuvring and shunting, candidates will gain an appreciation of the skills involved in driving the steam tram. Courses are booked individually. The course starts at 8:30 am, finishing before 1:00 pm, and includes safety checks, lighting up, oiling round the tram and driving and firing tuition.


New for 2018 we are including in our driving package a selection of gifts as a memento of the day. These will include a book of railways in the local area which includes the route of the TSR, a TSR coffee cup and a TSR wristband.


Courses are available on selected days during the running season and include one year’s membership of the TSR. You can also share the experience with up to four family and friends which includes the chance to travel on the train and to dine with you in our tearoom. These four guests are included in the price. Additional guests may attend for a charge of £10pp.

Locomotives are amazing pieces of machinary and are a joy to operate. However, they are hazardous places to be especially when dealing with hot pressurised steam, naked fire, oils and greases. All candidates are advised to wear stout/sturdy footwear,  an old pair of jeans and a long-sleeved shirt.
