Not to be missed!

Drive a Western on the SVR!

So, could you imagine sitting in the Driver’s seat of an iconic Class 52 diesel hydraulic? What about handling 2,700 bhp of with up to 72,000 lbs of pulling power? And what about being responsible for the awesome sound of the two 65 litre V12 Maybach engines as you take on up to 200 tonnes of coaching stock? If it’s a yes, then you need to consider one of our Severn Valley Railway Driver Experience Courses. Included in the course is a tour of the engine room, demonstration of the start up procedure, a close watch on “second man” duties, the opportunity to drive as well as the opportunity to travel in the rear cab and an optional visit to one of the signal boxes.

The course price is £325.00  inc. VAT . These courses are extremely popular and it is therefore, recommended that you book early to avoid disappointment. For further details, timings etc. please use the link as above, or contact:-
