Health and Safety Info

The above experiences are available to persons aged over 18 on the day of their experience and all participants must be physically fit. We regret that these experiences are not suitable for disabled persons. The carriage is 100% wheelchair friendly if needed for accompanying guests. (Up to two wheelchairs can fit onto the carriage.)
As you can perhaps appreciate, coal-fired steam locomotives are relatively dirty places on which to work and travel. The Guest Driver should therefore please wear stout footwear (steel capped shoes/boots – if at all possible) and some form of protective overall or old non nylon clothing.

Terms and Conditions
Driver Experiences are subject to the circumstances prevailing at the time and can be subject to change. The North Bay Railway reserves the right to make short notice alterations for technical or operational reasons.
Please note Driver Experiences are not available between 1st November – 31st December 2017 & 1st January – 9th February 2018. We are unable to run Driver Experiences on Open Air Theatre show days. In the event a show is announced after your booking we will offer a full refund or an alternative date. Please call 01723 368791 or email info@nbr.org.uk for further information.
