Journeys on the Seaton Tramway and the South Devon Railway


Day 1 Saturday

Head south-westwards for an afternoon in Seaton. Travel on the Tramway to Colyton and back. Using the track-bed of a former branch line, the 2’9’’gauge tramway opened in 1970 with a selection
of saloons and open-toppers. There is a lot of wildlife to be seen in the Axe valley and Colyton station is a real gem. Dinner, bed & breakfast at the Hotel de la Mer, Babbacombe, Torquay.


Day 2 Sunday

Short ride to Buckfastleigh for the South Devon Railway. It was an axed GWR branch line, which was restored by volunteers, and it meanders alongside the RiverDart to Totnes, mostly steam-hauled.
The Buckfastleigh station site has a café, museum and plenty of railway memorabilia to examine before the return to Essex.


B=Breakfast, D=Dinner
