This full-day course has been designed to offer a choice of either the New Romney to Hythe section of the line or the New Romney to Dungeness section.
Your day with us commences at 08:30 at New Romney station where you will be greeted by one of our team and escorted to the Heywood Buffet for a light breakfast and safety briefing. You will then be introduced to the driver who will be instructing you throughout the course.
There are three participants per course and each participant should have at least 15 miles of actual driving. Whichever section of the line you choose, there is similar mileage behind the regulator but mastering each section is a challenge in itself. With the 5-mile non-stop gallop between Dymchurch and Hythe, it really tests the mettle of each course member to keep the fire and water at the correct levels on a long run.
The level crossings and very different atmosphere on the Dungeness section test the powers of concentration and observation as the train winds its way behind houses and out on to the great shingle bank.
Participants must be 18+ years old.
