Special, Private Steamings
The Beam Engines can be run in steam to special order if you have an event you would like to celebrate or a group of people to whom you would like to give a unique experience. Also, the engines are available to use by film and broadcasting organisations, for instance when portraying themes of the industrial revolution, great inventors, canal transport and steam as motive power. The beautiful surroundings make this an ideal location for filming.
Prices depend on a number of factors which will differ according to the chosen date so please contact us if you want to receive more details.
Have you ever wanted to stoke a huge coal ﬁred boiler or operate the oldest working beam engine in the world? Now is your chance! Or why not make this a unique present for someone's special birthday or celebration. Crofton Beam engines are offering a unique day's experience. Accompanied by an experienced and knowledgeable escort, you can light and stoke the boiler, work with the Duty Engineer, enter areas not normally seen by the public, prepare the engines for steaming, and finally take control of the oldest beam engine in the world. Safety briefing, protective clothing and refreshments, including a light lunch, will be provided and you will receive a commemorative certificate recording the event. A maximum of only two places per steaming day are possible, so early booking is essential. The experience is available only to persons aged 18 or over.
