Railways & Recollections 82 The Dartmouth Steam Railway


In the heyday of the Great Western Railway, the 'Torbay Express' ran from London's Paddington Station to Torquay, Paignton and Kingswear, where a GWR-operated ferry took travellers to a station, without rails, across the water at Dartmouth. Nowadays diesel-hauled Great Western trains terminate at Paignton but across the platform, memories of those halcyon days live on, courtesy of the Dartmouth Steam Railway, which operates steam-hauled trains along the Paignton to Kingswear branch in true Great Western Railway tradition. The Dartmouth Steam Railway, formerly known as the Paignton and Dartmouth Steam Railway, is a seven-mile heritage railway on the former Great Western Railway branch line from Paignton to Kingswear. With a selection of archive photographs supplementing the author's own portfolio, this book introduces us to the line and infrastructure.
