For the first time ever, we’re having a prototype steam locomotive in steam at the National Garden Railway Show. No.24 from the 15″ gauge Cleethorpes Coast Light Railway – a replica of the S.R.R.L 2ft gauge No.24 – will be in steam and giving you the chance to get behind the regulator for a driving experience for £5. Driver for a Fiver on No.24 will start from 9am on the Saturday and continue through the day.

If you’ve never had the chance to have a drive of a large steam loco, this is it! But don’t worry you won’t be alone in the spacious cab, as one of the professional drivers from the C.C.L.R will be in the cab with you to show you how to drive.

We are very thankful to the Cleethorpes Coast Light Railway for allowing 24 to attend the show, which is looking like the best one yet.
