Father's Day

Father's Day Free Driving Experiences

Home » Events at The Watercress Line

This Father's Day (Sunday 18th June), we are offering any fathers travelling on the railway the opportunity to drive the 350hp diesel locomotive for FREE*!

Take the controls under the guidance of one of our instructors to drive the 49 tonne locomotive for a short distance from Alresford station and back.

This activity will be taking place at Alresford station at the Cattle Dock.  No need to pre-book a time slot, just turn up on the day and be prepared to queue for your turn.

*Fathers must be in possession of a valid travel ticket for that day to take part in this offer.

Others can have a go at taking the controls for a fee of £5 per person, subject to availability, but must be over the age of 16 and be able to climb into the cab of the locomotive.
