For anyone who has a passion for the age of steam, this taster driving experience is the perfect gift. You’ll learn to drive a real 5/8th scale locomotive, with all the same controls as its bigger counterpart, with real steam on a real track. You’ll even get to drive it through historic Sherwood Forest, one of the country’s most famous sites. An expert instructor will guide you thoroughly through the controls and demonstrate how to drive the steam engine on the easier practice track, before letting you have a go yourself, all under his watchful supervision. The instruction is all one-on-one, so you will have his full attention. Once he feels you have mastered the skills needed, you will move over to the 1 mile long Sherwood Forest track, where you will take complete control as you drive the full length through the forest. Your instructor will remain with you for guidance throughout.

  • Full one-to-one instruction from a trained professional
