Evening Rail Cruises

Step aboard a steam hauled South Devon Railway 'auto train' and enjoy an evening Rail Cruise, after a delicious barbecue, and discover lots of fascinating facts about the line and see the superb views from the train at a slow and very relaxing pace!

Our Rail Cruises run every Wednesday in August, starting with a barbecue at Buckfastleigh station at 6pm, before heading off up the line to Totnes at around 7pm.

The barbecue is prepared from local ingredients by our own chef. One of our experienced guides will then take you on a journey up the seven mile line to Totnes, stopping at lots of interesting locations on the way.

There is a bar on the train where you can enjoy wine, beer and soft drinks. 

There is also plenty of time to ask questions - and don't forget to look out for all the wildlife along the way.

So why not come along for a very different and convivial evening and discover the valley of the River Dart and the railway that runs along it for seven beautiful miles. 

The cost is £30 for adults and £20 for children, including the barbecue, and tickets need to be booked online in advance.

We return to Buckfastleigh at about 9.30pm.

Our Rail Cruises are probably not suitable for children under 11.
