Bring out your inner Casey Jones by stepping onto the footplate and heading out across the stunning Kent countryside.

Join one of England’s most loved and most original heritage railways for a day and learn the skills required to drive a full-steam locomotive.

Supervised by an experienced instructor, take the controls and learn how to move off and stop this incredible machine smoothly. As the day progresses, you will have several opportunities to try your hand and develop your skills, culminating in gently ‘buffering up' your engine to a 20-ton brake van.

Enjoy fine dining on the extravagant Pullman Dining Car, served up by traditional dining car staff as the train gently winds its way through the scenic countryside.

Set your mind back to when whole families would pack up and set off on a great rail-adventure for their holidays, and now you too can enjoy this memorable and nostalgic experience with your friends and family at the Kent and East Sussex Railway.
