South Devon Railway - Fa;r more than a steam train ride!

Sixty years since the last BR(W)Train

The last BR(W) passenger train ran between Ashburton and Totnes and back on the first Saturday in November in 1958.
To mark this 60th anniversary we’re running a special steam hauled service this year on Saturday 3rd November 2018  leaving Buckfastleigh at 1958hrs  (7:58pm) and returning from Totnes at the same time as the last train did 60 years ago.  It’ll arrive in Buckfastleigh at 9:21pm.Tickets are on sale now through our website at the usual return fare of £15. Simply select Sat November 3rd as your travel date. If you’re visiting us earlier in the day and want to make multiple trips you’ll need a Rover Ticket for our November Diesel Gala.

The railway museum will be open from 6:30pm.

We look forward to seeing you there.
