Those with an adventurous sprit can “drive” a steam or vintage diesel engine in the Museum. First the controls of the engine are explained by an experienced engine driver who then supervises visitors as they drive back and forth on the 800 m long track. At the end they receive an “Honorary Engine Driver” diploma.We advise you to call in advance to find out which engine will be operating.
Operating a handcart
Visitors can not only admire the handcart exhibited in the Museum: they can also try to operate one themselves on a 400 m long track. After the ride each participant receives a certificate issued in their name.
For larger groups a handcart race can be organised.
