Club & Track Details

The South Devon Miniature Railway, A 7¼ Inch Gauge railway set in the heart of the gardens at Buckfastleigh Station, on the South Devon Railway. Ride through tunnels, past the River Dart and parts of the standard gauge South Devon Railway as you come aboard for your very own magical journey of discovery, on the South Devon Miniature Railway. We have two routes that we operate at the current time and both are about half a mile. The journey time dependent on the loco heading the train is around 6 to 8 minutes and runs along the edge of the River Dart taking in views of the gardens of the South Devon Railways as well as picnic area's, engine sheds and other parts of the railway that not all the visitors get to see. Each of our locos travel roughly 1,000 miles per year on average, hauling trains consisting of both sit astride and normal seating. That makes the South Devon Miniature Railway one of the premier visitor attractions within the South Devon Railway and even Devon itself! The railway will be opening on the 5th of April and will be closing on the 2nd of November, during December we will be running Santa specials along side the big railway. We will also be opening for bank holidays and during events held by the South Devon Railway. In 2014 we are aiming to open during school holidays, this will mainly be during the summer period. Presently we have a staff shortage and we are unable to guarantee opening times other than weekends, as all of our members are between the age of 13-50. We look forward to seeing you.
