Choo choo choose this diesel steam train driving experience as your next big gift! A once in a lifetime gift, for someone very special!

Heritage diesel railcars are few and far between now, and have become a real classic locomotive. The examples used in this experience are from the 1950s and will be very much a source of enjoyment to a train fanatic or for people with an appreciation of classic engineering.

The lucky train driver for the day will be travelling the rails through the Peak District, from Wirksworth to Duffield, feeling the power and the prestige of a superb heritage railcar.

Drivers can take guests with them, so maybe if you’re lucky after giving this gift, you’ll be invited to relax in the passenger saloon, while they’re doing their driving.

Lunch will be served at the Pullman buffet within Wirksworth station, provided for both the driver and one chosen guest. Additional guests are welcome to pay to have lunch with them too.

The afternoon will be spent again out on the rails, taking the controls of a main line heritage diesel locomotive, driving portions of the 18-mile track, again on a return journey ending up back at Wirksworth.

A beautiful day, celebrating the history of train travel, delighting in an unmissable experience of driving trains themselves, and enjoying a day that will live long in the memory!
