The Amberley Footplate Experience

After much deliberation and even a bit of soul searching, we have taken the decision not to offer the footplate course in 2018.

2018 is the final year of Peter's 10-year boiler ticket and it is felt that whilst we can operate Peter on the Museum rail service, the rough treatment, to which the loco is subjected by some (not all) of our student drivers, will exacerbate some of the mechanical problems that we have been having.

We regret having to take this action but feel that in the long term interests of the locomotive, this is the best thing to do.
