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.

  • 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.
  • Lovely day out - We decided on a steam train and boat ride day. The train was lovely, and the boat ride was a lot of fun with an entertaining guide, which one of my teenage daughters found hilarious!
  • Great fun - Cost of ticket sooooo worth it! Very safe on the train. Not over crowded and screens between seats. Dartmouth is a hidden gem which we thoroughly enjoyed. We took a boat trip too! Great day.
