Overview

April 2021 update: We are absolutely chuffed to announce that we start running trains again on 17th May. Tickets will be available online from Monday 12th April. We can’t wait to welcome you back!

We are opening up the Buckfastleigh site on the weekends and every Tuesday and Thursday from 10am – 4pm.  The weekend-only operation of the open-air Miniature Railway around the site and the live-steam Garden Railway have been big hits with visitors, but both subject to good weather.

There’s plenty of space to enjoy our large 12-acre grounds in the sunshine, a large free car park, plus drinks, snacks and ice creams are on sale in a nearby kiosk. It’s the perfect way to spend a few hours on a nice day whilst avoiding the traffic jams and crowds at the beach and the Moors!

The South Devon Railway is one of Devon’s and the West Country’s best loved tourist attractions and is the longest established steam railway in the south west.

The South Devon Railway, or SDR, is a seven mile former Great Western Railway branch line, built in 1872, which runs along the stunning valley of the River Dart between Buckfastleigh and Totnes. We run steam trains with heritage rolling stock and offer a wonderful all day, all weather attraction for families and people of all ages.

Totnes (Riverside) station is c. 500 yards from the main line station. Footpaths link the station with the town. Or plenty of free car parking at Buckfastleigh station – TQ11 0DZ.
