Courses Available


This course offers one to one tuition on driving and firing our 2ft 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. Courses are available on selected Sundays during the running season and include one year’s membership of the TSR. Lunch is also provided on the day and is included in the price. You can also share the experience with up to four family and friends. They will all enjoy the chance to travel on the train you are driving and to dine with you at lunchtime.
