Rail Changing

23rd February 2022

Here we are at Churston all loaded up and ready to change a couple of rails. When the trains aren't running the PW (Permanent Way) department take the opportunity to carry out work with out interfering with the running of passenger trains.

  • Stunning views - The views from the boat were stunning and the handy (and hilarious) commentary by the crew helped point out things of local interest. Loved it :)
  • Sights and smells - Cannot beat the smell and sound of a steam locomotive, a very scenic ride firstly along the beach, then along the river Dart. A couple of hours in Dartmouth then all aboard for trip back.
  • Choo choo - What a lovely trip we had. Despite covid they had 2 steam services in operation and could safely carry lots of people. A 20 minute journey and free ferry to Dartmouth is included in the price. Go enjoy some nostalgia!
