Ride with the Driver    $35 (in addition to travel ticket)
Some Conditions of the Riding with the Driver:-
To take part in the Ride with the Driver you must be relatively fit and agile with full use of arms and legs. There is no age limit as long as you are over 18. You must be physically able to climb steps into and down from the locomotive at ground level totally unassisted in case we do not have platform access.

The driver can and will use his discretion as to your ability to do this and under our Health and Safety requirements is obliged to refuse to take anyone who he feels is not sufficiently agile and mobile to manage in this environment. We cannot guarantee a seat for you on the locomotive so you must be prepared to and be able to stand for the duration of the trip.
So please make sure you are fit and agile before booking this activity for yourself or someone else. We would rather save the embarrassment of refusal on the day.
It's a wonderful experience but you must be aware it's a working industrial environment.
