We were recently approached about our Weardale Railway Driver for a Fiver experience which last run in 2017. The Editor, Gareth Edwards was keen to write an article highlighting 8 affordable driver experience packages on heritage railways for under £20.
The driving experience which utilised the Weardale Railway Trust Sentinel 0-4-0 Shunter ran for the last couple of years up until 2017. We’ve not been able to run in 2018 due to shunter requiring an exam and Trust members being occupied with other projects. Hopefully we will be able to offer in 2019. It appears in Heritage Steam Magazine issue 243 and is covered in an article called Bite Sized Driver Experience.
