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.

  • 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.
  • Chugging along! - The cruise along the River Dart was delightful and the witty commentary was also very informative. The last leg on the steam train was fantastic - chugging along past the beautiful beaches with children waving to you from the sands. Just priceless! We had the most amazing day, the itinerary is done with military precision and is therefore relaxing and exciting - we really loved it. This has got to be a "must do" trip!
  • Brilliant! - We had to write to tell you what a thoroughly enjoyable trip we had on your "Steam Train & Cruise". The train was brilliant and the cruise was a revelation. We will be back to experience it again. Thank you.
