ROLLING STOCK HISTORY
Please click on a tab on the left to see historical details of each of our items of rolling stock.
We are open from 10.30 to 4pm from Easter to the end of October on every weekend, and daily during school holidays.
We are a small group so there may be rare occasions when we can't open. If this is the case there will be a message on the Tea on the Train facebook page (below). Please check.
When we are not open the site is still accessible from the Tarka Trail.
BRHC on Facebook
Bideford Railway Heritage Centre, Instow Signal Box and Bideford Tea on the Train all have pages on Facebook - join us there!
our 30th Anniversary Year is over Now but what a great one it's been!
During the winter months we'll be continuing to enhance the site, working on improving our storage and workshop options, all to welcome you back in 2020 when we hope the loco will be running and we will have started work on our passenger-carrying brake van, thanks to a grant from the Bideford Bridge Trust. With the loco and the brake van both on their way to completed restoration, could we be running our train in 2020? Watch this space!
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!
