A lovely surprise gift idea, but the reality was, er, different!
By the time we booked our Day Rover experience, only non-steam rides were available - and we could only get them in Derbyshire. However, the day was enjoyable - warm and sunny - and the railway staff were very welcoming. Actually they were too welcoming because of a mix-up with someone else who was having a VIP experience that day! That's when I was bundled out of the cab. But we had a good laugh about it later... in fact we're still chuckling now.
Overall, pretty enjoyable, but the box said "steam", and we got diesel. I didn't mind, but someone else might.

Occasion: Christmas
I brought this gift for my father and Grandfather for Christmas as my Grandfather really loves trains; I thought it would be ideal for them to spend the day together seeing the countryside and travelling on a wonderful steam train. This is not how the day turned out. They visited the Matlock site; the train was not a steam train and only went one stop up the line, they were told they could only go along the track and get off once. Not the 'unlimited travel for the day along the railway tracks' that is advertised in the description of the gift. The trip did not even take half a day let alone a full day. I am very disappointed with this gift; it should have been a wonderful day for my Grandfather to remember but really was a waste of my money.

Mr & Mrs Harte
Very impressed with the rover steam train ticket we bought one each and were able to get on and off the train any time we fancied. Lots of lovely little villages along the line we stopped off for afternoon tea at one. Nice to enjoy the countryside from the train.
