Spend the day on the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway learning about and trying your hand at the operation of heritage diesel trains in a group with one of our friendly drivers. One of our experienced drivers will introduce you to railway operations in the morning and you will take it in turns to drive the 18 mile return journey between Wirksworth in the Derbyshire Peak District and Duffield just north of Derby, in a 1950s heritage Diesel Railcar.
Guests can ride in the passenger saloon and take in the beautiful views of the countryside whilst you’re driving. Lunch will then be served in our Pullman Buffet at Wirksworth Station for yourself and one guest and additional guests may purchase off the menu. The afternoon allows you opportunity to get to grips with a large main line heritage diesel locomotive as you do the 18 mile return journey once more taking it in turns with your fellow experience guests. A Guard's brake van is normally attached so that guests can ride behind the locomotive whilst you're driving, they can stand on the veranda whilst you’re going along in summer or have the wood-burning stove lit to keep warm in w inter!
This experience will last for approximately 6 hours.
This experience is for one person. There will be other people on the day.
You are able to bring spectators on the day.
You must be able to climb in and out of the locomotive from ground level.
