Tonka Land Train Hire & Sales Services
We have two land trains available for hire on a variety of terms for a wide-variety of events. Our land trains can be hired for a complete summer season, just one day, or for a number of consecutive days at shows giving customers excellent flexibility when it comes to deciding upon the most appropriate package. We are experts in providing land trains for promotions, company and corporate body launches and outdoor events with our land trains frequently used as people carriers ferrying visitors from car parks to the main event area. Santa's Grotto events are also very popular in November and December and a land train can add an extra touch of excitement for the young and old alike as has been demonstrated for Birmingham City Council over the past few years.
Racecourses, show grounds, stately homes and all manor of outdoor events are wonderful opportunities for these magnificent Tonka land trains to operate or attend.
We only ever offer our vehicles as a complete package. A package typically consists of:
- A land train of various lengths for 'on the public highway' or 'off road' usage
- An experienced qualified driver
- A competent guard on the rear carriage
- Full insurance cover (as applicable)
- Annual worthiness certificate report
- Full risk assessment reports
- All fuels oils
- Train stops
We also offer a fare-taking service for the client if required, or they can of course have their own ticket conductor on or off the land train.
If on-road operation is required, the obtaining of prior DOT approval is necessary with it normally taking about a month to acquire a Vehicle Special Order. As a business we are already known to the DOT, having had licenses approved by them previously, and we will always assist with advice on what land train is best suited to your needs, how to operate it and what is required at the event. Indeed, the benefit of our years and years of experience in this field are at the disposal of any genuinely interested body or person.
