Driver for a Fiver
Moors Valley Railway is also offering visitors the opportunity to be a ‘Driver for a Fiver’ and drive a real steam engine as part of the Model Railway Weekend. A £5 donation will entitle budding train drivers to a short instruction period followed by the chance to drive one of the railways steam locomotives along a section of track from Kingsmere Station. Money raised will go to the British Heart Foundation to assist in its cardiovascular research in the UK.
‘Driver for a Fiver’ will operate on a first come first served basis on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 July. Please note minimum age 13 years. For more information call the railway on 01425 471415.
