We are now taking bookings for steam engine driver experience days - the cost of these will be around £325 per day. For this you will get the opportunity to eat breakfast off the shovel, work alongside our experienced firemen and drivers on the plate and driving the locomotive for an entire day. Half days will also be available (£225). We advise booking early, as we expect a lot of takers for this.
Work on our new water tower has begun. This is part of our preparations for the return of steam to NIRT. We hope to start running our new steam engine in September.
