Welcome to 2019, our 30th Anniversary Year
DIESEL LOCO RESTARTED!!
After a 12 months-long complete rebuild of its diesel engine, our Planet diesel locomotive was successfully started at 3.15pm on Thursday 11th July. The days of black smoke were gone and the engine ran sweetly. A very big "well done" to the small team that have worked tirelessly to achieve this.
Another excellent start to our 30th anniversary year.
Our historic railway parcels van at Bideford contains a fabulous interpretation display, with beautiful information panels, a model railway and a high-tech touchscreen interactive.
It's an in-depth historical experience of life on the north Devon railways - come and see us!
