Footplate Experience Days

IMG_7521Have you ever dreamed of driving a train from station to station through scenic countryside? The East Lancashire Railway’s Footplate Experience Days provide an ideal opportunity to fulfil your childhood dream! Get behind the controls of a lovingly restored ex-British Railway steam or diesel locomotive, pulling a train of vintage carriages or wagons, and enjoy an unforgettable experience.

Participants can spend a full day or a half-day with our locomotives and options can include a guided tour and an afternoon lunch!

There are a number of packages to choose from, each with the option of a steam or diesel locomotive. Follow the links below to find out more:
