Tunnel Works

9th December 2021

We carried out some work in the Greenway tunnel this week. We changed out 400 clips for new 401a clips with a corrosion protective coating (due to the wet environment of the tunnel). We also changed some rail pads and packed the track to ensure a good ride for our passengers - especially with the Train of Lights currently in operation! Lastly, we profiled the some of the rails with a grinder to ensure they continue to be safe to run on.

  • 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.
  • 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 :)
  • Perfect day - We have done this several times over the years and is a fantastic day out. The steam train ride is great, but the cruise makes it. The commentary is very good and funny. Would definitely recommend this trip if in the area.
