Railway Experiences

Have you ever wanted to Drive A STEAM OR DIESEL LOCOMOTIVE or spend the day in a signalbox?

We have relaunched our Driver Experiences, redesigned to give you the best opportunity to enjoy driving a locomotive on the Kent & East Sussex Railway.

The experience opens up the track between Rolvenden & Wittersham Road for you to drive on - with straights and flowing corners, this section of line gives you the ability to test the skills you will learn whilst on the footplate.

Motive power used:


  • Hunslet J94 Austerity - No25 Northiam or Sapper - only available on our Engineman Experience


  • Class 08 -

We are hoping to open up availability for further diesel traction later in the year.

Your experience is priced at £275 per person and includes a gift bag and certificate of achievement. For a small additional charge, there's also the option to relive your day with video footage of your experience, provided on a K&ESR branded USB memory stick.
