Drive a Steam Tram


Steam Tram Half Day Course

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.


Little Extras for the Ideal Gift

Included in our driving package are a selection of gifts as mementos of the day including a TSR Fridge magnet, a TSR coffee cup and a TSR wristband.


Bring the Family

Courses are available on selected days during the running season.

You can also share the experience with up to two guests which includes the chance to travel on the train you are driving and to dine with you in our tearoom. These two guests are included in the price.

Additional guests may attend for a charge of £10pp which must be paid for in advance.

Please Take Note

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.

Training shoes, canvas shoes or open shoes are not permitted on the footplate.
