How it Works

Simple & effective.

  • Step 1

    Arrival & Set-up

    The entire railway fits on a 3.5t lorry, which requires access directly to the final installation site. We arrive a minimum of 3 hours in advance, and lay the track, & prepare the station, fencing & signage.

  • Step 2

    Building up steam

    After initial safety checks, the locomotive's fire is lit about an hour before we start running, as she gently builds up steam pressure ready to run.  Further safety checks are carried out, including her two safety valves (one of which is a backup device).

  • Step 3

    Ready to run!

    Once the driver is confident that our safety criteria have been met, & the pressure is correct, we're ready to start hauling passengers. The safety checks are repeated throughout the running day.

  • Step 4

    Pack-down

    At the end of the day, it takes about two-three hours to safely lift the track & decommission the locomotive. After that, we head off home for a well-earned rest!

  • Good
    Safe
    Fun!
