Opening Times

Sorry, this event has passed

A great family day out with steam and heritage diesel services every day and into the evening, with our famous real ale festival at Staverton station.

We'll be running trains all day with departures from each end of the line (Buckfastleigh and Totnes).

At Buckfastleigh, the SDR's London Transport Routemaster bus will be running trips to Buckfast Abbey and along to Ashburton, the original terminus of the line. And the garden railway and all of the SDR's usual attractions, from the museum to the gardens, cafe and gift shop, will also be open.

At Staverton, the midway point on the seven-mile line, the beer and cider festival will be in full swing from 11.0am until late (6pm on Monday), offering a great selection of almost 70 different ales, craft beers and ciders to enjoy from Devon Diesel Society’s award-winning bar.

In addition, also at Staverton, there will be a barbecue on Friday & Saturday evening, and a buffet car serving a variety of hot and cold foods and soft drinks during the day, plus  a ‘just for fun’ quiz and chilli on Sunday evening (26th).
