Have a Go at Driving a Loco!

Ever wanted to take the controls of a steam or diesel loco? Always played with a train set and wanted to play with a much bigger one? WWLR offers you the chance to get up close and personal with either a Garratt steam loco or our replica Wisbech Tram. From a half-day immersive session that includes steam-raising, light engine to the full rake and a fish & chips lunch to a chance to have a go around the station from as little as £30 (subject to availability).
