Though steam is no longer our main source of motive power it has lost none of its romance. How many of us have gazed longingly into the cab of a simmering engine as the crew prepare her for the journey ahead. Now, thanks to the unique association of Clive Groome, an ex British Rail driver and fireman, with a number of preserved railways, anyone can experience the thrill of driving a full size steam locomotive.
Introductory: A one day steam engine driving course run on Saturdays.
Stage I and II: Five days intensive training in the art of steam enginemanship.
