Hire a Train

You can hire your very own train on the South Devon Railway!

Ideal for a special birthday or celebration, a steam (or diesel) hauled round trip of the line is sure to be a unique way to entertain your guests!

We will be pleased to offer you an enticing selection of catering packages when you hire our 48 seat Restaurant Car. An at-table bar service can also be available offering a selection of fine wines and locally produced beers, ciders and soft drinks.

Our trains can seat up to 200 people, and arrangements can be made for private-hire trains during the day or in the evenings.

We can also arrange the use of our vintage Routemaster Bus, RM1872, which can transport your guests between the railway and your venue!

Please contact us to discuss the possibilities!
