This summer, the Vale of Rheidol Railway is giving you the chance to realise those childhood dreams and have a go at driving a steam locomotive.
Quarry Hunslet No 605 "Margaret" will be in steam at Devil's Bridge station on selected days and for a small fee, there will be opportunities for Footplate rides or the chance to take the controls and drive the locomotive over a short section of line. Participants need to be of good health and deemed fit and able. Children may participate with parental consent, but must be supervised. The driver may ask for a parent to accompany. All funds raised go towards the restoration of locomotive No 7 "Owain Glyndwr" which has been out of service since 1998. Drive the engine for £5 donation. Footplate rides £3 donation
