Attraction Information

AtPlym Valley Railway, we have rebuilt a 1.5 mile section of the ex Great Western branch line from Marsh Mills to Plym Bridge. The line used to run from Tavistock Junction, just outside of Plymouth, to Launceston. It is a heritage railway centre where we are preserving steam and diesel locomotives, carriages, wagons, and other historic railway artefacts to recreate the atmosphere of a bygone age.

As well as train rides, we have lots of engines, carriages and wagons to see. We have viewing areas so you can watch the trains running when you aren't on them! When you get off the train at Plym bridge you can explore Plym bridge woods, which is a national trust property. The Railway is next to a cycle track, so you can bring your bikes, have a train ride, then explore the cycle track through Plym bridge woods.

We operate passenger trains on selected days over a section of the line from our station at Marsh Mills to Plym Bridge Platform. We have special Running days, including Easter Sunday Specials, Spooky Sunday for Halloween, and Santa specials on the Sundays leading up to Christmas. We offer several different party packages too.

You can find all of the running dates and times are on our website through the link.
