South Devon Railway - Ride on the 'Bubblecar'
Description

A special half term heritage diesel - known as the 'Bubblecar'

This February Half Term (15th to 23rd), why not take a train ride on our heritage diesel unit, known as a ‘Bubblecar’, whose large windows allow for almost panoramic views of the beautiful valley of the river Dart on its journey from Buckfastleigh to Staverton and return?

The ‘Bubblecar’  is not used on our passenger trains regularly, so this is a fairly rare opportunity to take a ride on this lovely old vehicle.

One of our steam locomotives will be positioned at Buckfastleigh too, allowing access to its footplate, or you can immerse yourself in the history of the railway and view fascinating artefacts in our adjacent Museum, including the only remaining original Brunel broad-gauge steam locomotive in the world.

Whilst you are with us, our award-winning grounds and gardens will be open at Buckfastleigh or, alternatively, alight from the train at Staverton to enjoy a walk along the bank of the river Dart and the Dartington Estate and then catch a later train back to Buckfastleigh.

After your train trip, why not relax with a hot drink or other refreshments in our Refreshment Rooms or visit our well appointed Gift and Model Shop?
