UK Vintage Steam and Diesel Train Driving Experiences

Thank you for stopping by!

Let’s get it out on the table, we’re completely loco about trains (see what we’ve done there), and this site is more than just arranging truly unforgettable days out for people – though that is our main motivation – it also a work of passion.

Take some time to explore the pages here – you find intersting histories of the locomotives you can drive, some have some real tales to tell! The efforts and labours of love that the preserved railways put into keeping the art of rail travel alive are also worth reading about.

Like many boys that mature into semi-grown up men, we still harboured those childhood dreams – to not just be up front in the cab of a loco enjoying the unique perspective it affords, but to be in overalls feeding the flames that keep the old world steam trains powering along in all their glory while taking in those views. To be blowing them horns, bells and whistles. To be breathing in the working smells that permeate into your heart and soul. In other words, we know what you’re feeling – we’ve been there…

So let us make your dream come true and get you into the cab of a vintage loco on a train driving experience of a lifetime. Working with a number of railways we are able to offer flexible vouchers via Into The Blue, who handle our ticket sales for us. When you buy a voucher from Drive A Train, you will have a full twelve months to use it – perfect if you’re buying it as a gift for someone else.

We hope that you enjoy discovering where and how you can drive a train on our website and thank you again for dropping in – hopefully we’ll see you driving your dream someday soon.
