The South Devon Railway is a branch line of the former Great Western Railway. Gleaming, historic GWR steam engines haul trains full of enthralled passengers of all ages on a round trip between Buckfastleigh and Totnes. The line passes through some of Devon’s most beautiful countryside, hugging the river Dart for almost all of your journey – and through countryside rich in wildlife, barely any of which is visible from the road.

At Buckfastleigh, there is a riverside walk and picnic area, play area, gardens, a fascinating museum, their workshop and historic steam and diesel engines as well as their well stocked shop and refreshment rooms. Dartmoor Otters & Buckfast Butterflies is adjacent to Buckfastleigh station and you can buy joint tickets for both attractions. Down the line you’ll discover sleepy Staverton, where time really has stood still, and on to historic Totnes. The station there has been rebuilt from buildings and artefacts rescued from all over the west country and is well worth a visit. While you are there, visit the award winning Totnes Rare Breeds Farm, right next door to the station. Joint tickets can be bought. We’re also a short walk from the town and main line station.
