About the South Devon Railway

The South Devon Railway recreates the golden days of travel between the 1930s and 1960s as it takes you on a trip back in time on a traditional Great Western Railway branch line running from Buckfastleigh and Totnes Riverside.

Our work relies hugely on a dedicated group of volunteers who carry out a very wide range of activities and duties, both customer facing and behind the scenes, and many of whom play an active role in the management of the railway.
