This course is very much based on giving instruction to anyone who owns or is considering purchasing a miniature traction engine, and is a tailored half-day of instruction on how to run one.

Usually the course will be run on a 4” scale traction engine, however we ask you to talk to us beforehand, so we can decide which engine will be best for you. The course is available in scales 4” and 6” with 3” being available under negotiation.

We will run the course in our yard at Berrybrook where light refreshments will be provided. Whilst we don’t expect to go beyond lunchtime, you are more than welcome to bring you own refreshments, or to head up to the shop if you wish to have lunch whilst working on the engine. Alternatively, we can recommend several local pubs which serve food in the day for you to visit following the tuition.

The day will begin at 0900 and go on to around 1300hrs. We will begin with a little safety followed by a tour of the engine we will be using. We then light the engine and wait for it to get up to pressure. We will guide you around general maintenance, running and cleaning.

The engine should be in steam by 11am. You will then be given the opportunity to learn how to control and drive the engine in our yard. Around midday, we will begin going through how to shut the engine down to conclude at around 1pm (this can overrun).

We aim for this day to be instructional, yet enjoyable. Maximum of 2 people per course.

There are two ways of booking the course; either select a payment option below and we will send out a voucher(s) or give us a call on 01392 833301 and we will organise a date and payment over the phone. There is no requirement to organise a date prior to purchasing a voucher, usually (where the voucher is intended to be a gift), the recipient of the voucher will give us a call when they are ready to redeem it. Do bear in mind however that we usually need at least a couple of weeks' notice for either booking option and courses usually run on a Tuesday, Wednesday or a Thursday.
