Here is your chance to have a full day on the footplate of split between both of our diesel locos, Clive and Binky, please note that the dates for Diesel Courses are available on most Fridays in low season, please email for details. 


Your day starts with a safety briefing complete with a tour of Heatherslaw sheds and yard. You will then be introduced to Clive and Binky and given full instructions on how both Clive and Binky work. The first trip of the day will be to take Clive and the permanent way train down the line to experience the second oldest loco on the line and get to know all of its idiosyncrasies. We return to Heatherslaw before the first service train.  Once we have cleaned, polished you and your instructor will attach the loco to the service train (8 coaches), then complete 5 full round trips to Etal. The last task of the day is to ensure the loco is ready for it's next outing.



Included in the day a full round trip for up to 4 people on one of your trains.
