Driver Experince Participants

I would like to congratulate your Society on the concept of the Train Driver Experience. I thoroughly enjoyed my day. This concept allows us avid followers of the steam era a chance to live out some of our dreams, when we stand on the footplate of locos on open days and wish we could just pull on the regulator and just feel the energy of it moving from the platform. Thanks to your Society I have been able to fulfil that dream and it was a very fulfilling experience. I would like my thanks to go to the train crew of Ian, Paul and David for a day that I will not forget for a long time. Their knowledge and experience and their faith and confidence in me all helped to make the day very enjoyable. Once again, congratulations and a very big THANK YOU. Regards, Ray.
