Keep watching for upcoming Tornado Driver Experience Courses in 2020 on our Heritage Line visits.

When the locomotive is visiting heritage railways there may occasionally be opportunities to take the regulator of Tornado on a driver experience course. Full details will be announced at the time of each visit.  In most cases bookings will be handled by the preserved railway concerned – please contact the line involved if you want a chance to drive a 21st Century legend!
During 2020 there are going to be further opportunities to drive and fire Tornado on preserved railways.

On 21st and 22nd May, Tornado will be at the Nene Valley Railway and driver experience courses will be run on both these days.This exciting package includes theory and practical driving of No. 60163 in which you will receive an hour’s tuition and an hour on the footplate of 60163 without rolling stock. During the hour on the footplate, two of you will take it in turns to drive and fire the locomotive for a total distance of approximately 15 miles. You’ll enjoy drinks, a meal and souvenirs of your unforgettable day.
