Society Locomotives and Training

The Society owns three locomotives.

An 0-4-0 Wren tank locomotive named "Victoria Rose"

An 0-6-0 Petrol Hydraulic Locomotive named "Green Dragon"

A Co-Co Diesel Hydraulic Locomotive in the shape of a Class 37 diesel. This loco is currently

under construction.

All three of these locomotives are of 7.25" gauge.

Driving and Training.

Training both theoretical and practical is available to all members. This would be on either the Wren

steam locomotive or the Green Dragon petrol hydraulic locomotive. There is no age limit for learning

to drive, however there are age restrictions for hauling passengers.

Competent drivers who are aged 16 or over and have been passed out are permitted to haul

passengers. Drivers under 16 are not allowed to haul members of the public but may under

supervision haul members of their family.

Taster at Driving a Locomotive.

To get some idea as to what is involved we can give a short session at driving either the steam or

petrol hydraulic loco before having to commit to joining the Society. This would be carried out by

prior appointment either on a Sunday or Wednesday afternoon.
