The Retro Devon Seasider
Grab your bucket and spade, we’re off to the seaside! Our first train of 2019—heading down to Devon - will commence its journey in Huddersfield, heading over the Pennines toward Greater Manchester before travelling south along the Marches route. We will arrive in Paignton around midday. Paignton is the quintes- sential British seaside town, noted for its beautiful scenery and sandy beaches. If you wish, there are steam trains towards Kingswear and Greenway Halt – where you can visit Agatha Christies’ house. Our train will also call at Bristol Temple Meads, Exeter St. David’s and Torquay — where you may choose to alight.
You will have around 3½ hours in Paignton / Torquay, around 4 hours in Exeter, or just over 6 hours in Bristol.
We have requested DRS Class 37s as the motive power for this tour.
Our famous on board ‘Real Ale Bar’ will be available, serving a variety of hand-pumped Real Ales, wines and hot snacks. We are the only mainline operator to serve real ales by hand-pump in Britain!
As usual, there will be three classes of accommodation to suit all budgets.
Our standard class accommodation is very comfortable, with tables and large windows allowing you to enjoy your Retro experience.
If you want a little extra luxury, First class is perfect. With wide, padded seats, our ex-Intercity First Class coaches provide the perfect ambience to enjoy the scenic journey.
Our Premier Dining option will make your day extra special. Our on-board chefs prepare a Great British Breakfast in the morning and a 3-course evening meal on the return journey. If you want to re-create the Golden Age of Train Travel, this is certainly your opportunity!
We can be flexible with requirements for children, any special requests or dietary needs. Please call us to enquire.
