This locomotive is our introduction to the 'Driver A Diesel Train Experience'. 'L.J.Breeze' is a Class Steelman 6wDH and until you've ridden on locomotive you don't realise how solid they are. Instead of the well sprung, diddley-dee, diddley- dah, of a railway carriage, it's more of a CLUNK, CLUNK, CLUNK.
Richard Buckby, our Driver/Instructor, leads the way and we, the four 'rookies', follow him into the crowded cab.
