A childhood dream, retirement gift or a very special present, our Drive a Train Experience Gift Vouchers offer the ideal solution to those who wish to purchase a present but would like the recipient to choose their own date.

Purchase a Drive a Train Experience Voucher

2. Create your voucher: Visit the Purchase a Gift Voucher page, check the box next to the "Please enter an amount for this gift voucher:" line and enter your chosen value into the box. The price per person for our 2019 Drive a Train Experiences is detailed below:

3. Personalise your voucher: Personalise your present and complete the two boxes in the "Options" section and click "Add to Order". Don't worry if you don't want to personalise your voucher, just leave the "Options" boxes blank and proceed by clicking "Add to Order".

The Drive a Train Experience Vouchers are sold as Activity Vouchers and therefore the amount can be used against Drive a Train Experiences as well as other East Lancashire Railway products, including selected special events, Dining with Distinction experiences, Rail Ale Trails and Photography Courses. The vouchers are valid for 12 months from the date of purchase. Our Drive a Train Experiences are very popular, so we recommend the recipient getting in contact to book a date as soon as possible. 

Additional Details

We advise that anyone wishing to purchase one of our Drive a Train Experiences read our Terms and Conditions here. The courses can be labour intensive so we suggest that you make sure prior to booking that yourself or the intended recipient will be able to enjoy the experience to the full.
