Ride with the driver on the Dartmouth Steam Railway

Paignton, Devon

Enjoy a scenic steam train ride from Paignton to Dartmouth, with a twist.

Hop aboard the footplate and join the fireman and driver for a unique experience driving a beautiful steam train. Feel the heat of the fire and experience the sights and smells of a bygone era.

During your trip you can take in stunning coastal and countryside views, pass over viaducts and through tunnels as you meander down to the banks of the beautiful River Dart – all from a unique vantage point at the front of the train.

Make time to stop and explore the beautiful maritime town of Dartmouth, before returning in the first class observation Pullman carriage.

The ultimate gift for any steam railway enthusiast.
