Drive a real steam train for a day!
During winter, the Bennett Brook Railway run steam locomotives on its 6km narrow gauge track and offer enthusiasts the chance do the same - firing and driving a real 68-tonne 2-8-2 NG15 Class steam locomotive for a day! This is a great gift idea for railway buffs and a gift with a difference for dads on Fathers Day!
The 'Steam Experience' costs for $295 (incl. gst) for the day. It is available during the steam season (May - September) on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays and must be pre-booked.
