Driver Experience Days

Make someone’s dreams come true or realise your own lifelong ambition on our very special Steam Footplate or Diesel Driver Experience Days.

Enjoy the thrill of a lifetime or realise that childhood dream. Hold onto your hat and take control of a heritage locomotive on the Bodmin & Wenford Railway – it’s an experience you’ll never forget!

Keep the fires roaring on a Steam Footplate Experience or feel the raw power on a Diesel Driver Experience. Treat yourself or someone special to an unforgettable experience savouring the power of heritage diesel traction or the true magic of steam.

Our Driver Experience Days are unique as we are the only railway in the country where you will be able to pull a rake of carefully restored China Clay wagons and brake van.

Where else can you find such a perfectly unique gift?

Steam Footplate Experience

Keep the fires roaring on a Steam Footplate Experience

Join the crew on the footplate, shovel coal onto the fire, blow the whistle, open the regulator and feel the surge of adrenalin as you get hands on in control of a heritage steam locomotive.

Diesel Driver Experience

Feel the raw power on a Diesel Driver Experience

Experience life as the Driver and Secondman of a heritage diesel locomotive built for British Railways over 40 years ago.  Feel the power as you take the controls of a working former main line diesel, joining the crew in the cab for a day out to remember.
