Galmpton drainage

9th August 2021

The drainage run at Galmpton was completed today!

We have a good stream of water coming out of the pipe which we believe is from a spring which the railway cutting has cut though. We are seeing around 500 litres per hour travel though the pipe which previously would have gone straight onto the track - and if that had occurred it would have reduced the life of the track asset.

  • Highly recommend. - From boarding in Paignton, to alighting the ferry in Dartmouth, this journey has to be the best you can take on the English Riviera. It all goes by too quick. Highly recommend.
  • Harry Potteresque - Once on the platform we boarded the train (covid restrictions applied) and stepped back in time and themes of Harry Potters Hogwarts express sprang to mind! Brilliant!
  • Absolutely amazing day out - Easy booking online and due to social distancing you have a set seat. Fabulous weather made the views even better and you can smell the fumes of the engine. Ticket includes return ferry to Dartmouth. Friendly helpful staff.
