2012 Diesel Experience course dates announced.
(28/12/2011 @ 12:06:00)
The West Somerset Railway in partnership with the Diesel & Electric Preservation Group offer a one day course to realise your ambition to drive a Heritage Diesel Locomotive and so make long term held dreams a reality.
Experience the feel of a working Class 33 diesel electric locomotive as you join the Driver in the cab to take the seat and drive the Heritage Diesel Locomotive.
Treat someone special (even yourself!) to the thrill of a lifetime learning what it feels like to be a real Diesel Driver. With twenty miles of stunning West Somerset countryside and coastal scenery there is something for everyone from novice to enthusiast.
Our Diesel Engineman courses are designed for moderately fit men or women aged 18 years or over who will experience aspects of our railway operations unseen by our many passengers. On your course you will learn about your diesel locomotive and how to drive it safely in service.
Guided by an experienced Diesel & Electric Preservation Group Driver you will haul a former British Railways Goods Brake Van along part of the longest standard gauge Heritage Railway in the country.
