Driver for a Tenner - the perfect opportunity to get on the footplate of a locomotive

Driver for a Tenner
FANCY A TASTER OF WHAT IT IS LIKE TO DRIVE A LOCOMOTIVE? WELL YOU CAN WITH OUR DRIVER FOR A TENNER ON SELECTED DAYS. For just £10 you can take the control of a steam locomotive in the sidings. DRIVER FOR A TENNER IS RUN WITH THE SMALL ENGINE, LADY NAN Our general advice is that children under 5 are likely to be a bit frightened, so we don’t recommend Driver for a Tenner for them. Children between 5 and 16 years can do it providing they are accompanied by a responsible adult and it is always at the Driver’s discretion. There is a maximum of two visitors to travel on the locomotive. Visitors must be able to mount and dismount to/from the footplate, about 3 foot, via three vertical steps without assistance from the crew. This experience is therefore not appropriate for some people with limited mobility. The drivers decision to accept or reject persons onto the footplate must be accepted. If a pre-purchased ticket is refused, a refund will be available from Cranmore Station. We are currently running Driver for a Tenner on: 16th March buy on day only 17th March buy on day only 29th March pre-sale available 30th March pre-sale available 31st March pre-sale available 1st April pre-sale available 14th April pre-sale available
