Driver Experiences

Fancy driving a mainline diesel locomotive? Now is your chance, with experiences to suit all pockets. Under supervision, drive the loco by yourself or with another participant for the 22-mile round-trip to Wymondham Abbey and back or splash out by driving the loco with a rake of empty passenger carriages, stopping at stations en-route. All experiences include lunch, one year's free membership of the Mid-Norfolk Railway and a Certificate of Acheivement. Find out more here.


We will do our best to operate services as planned but we reserve the right to alter or withdraw any services without prior warning. All visiting locomotives are subject to availability and may be altered without notice.
