Allan & Ron go west #2

Day 3

Another hot sunny day. Drove to Paignton for a return trip on Paignton and Devon Steam Railway to Kingswear and then a ferry to Dartmouth. Now sitting on Buckfastleigh station for return trip on South Devon Railway.

View from Paignton railway. You can just make out 2 mothballed cruise ships in Torbay.

Train leaving Paignton main line station and the US engine outside Paignton steam Railway station.

And the trains on the Paignton and Dartmouth Steam Railway.

Then on to the Dart valley, and the South Devon Railway.  Maxine and I visited a few years ago – I’d last been there when it was the Dart Valley Railway, and was about to open as a preserved line.  Dates me a bit…..
