The National Traction Engine Trust

The 2014 Driver Training Course took place at Astwood Bank in less than ideal weather conditions. However, the excellent facilties enabled all planned activities to go ahead. All participants went away from the weekend having had an enjoyable time and learnt a lot about the skills involved in driving a traction engine.

Plans are already being drawn up for the 2015 Driver Training Course which will be held at Astwood Bank, near Redditch on the 9th and 19th May 2015.

 Places for this year's course were heavily booked and already reservations have been made for a quarter of the places for 2015. If you would like to take part in the 2015 Driver Training Course, please contact To avoid disappointment, early booking is recommended.
