Length of experience
The experience includes one round trip from Peasholm to Scalby Mills.

What you need to know
The diesel engine driver experiences are available to persons aged over 18 on the day of their experience. Participants must be physically fit.

We regret that these experiences are not suitable for disabled persons. The carriage is 100% wheelchair friendly if needed for accompanying guests, up to two wheelchairs can fit onto the carriage.

Locomotives are relatively dirty places on which to work and travel. The Guest Driver should therefore please wear stout footwear (steel capped shoes/boots - if at all possible) and some form of protective overall or old non-nylon clothing.

The Diesel Driver Experience costs £120 per person.

To have a boxed and gift wrapped voucher sent by post will cost an additional £3.50.
