Fire and Drive Experience Day

Today was a day reserved for the Fire and Drive  experience  run by the GWSR

GWSR Quote:

While the trains on the Honeybourne Line aren’t taking travellers a hundred miles or more at speeds in the upper 70s, driving and firing still demands skill and teamwork. Under the expert guidance of the railway’s own experienced footplate staff, those enjoying a footplate experience course will most certainly have one of the most memorable and rewarding of days.
