The 15 minute ride to the viaduct takes you to the start of many walks on Dartmoor. At £4 this is not a cheap ride but an essential one. Do NOT expect the whiff of steam or nicely restored rolling stock. An old BR diesel...More

Enjoyable visit to Okehampton Station for lunch. Delicious food eaten on the cool station platform. Trains run to the gorge and back. Travel 1st class or in the open observation car (the cooler option this summer). All work is overseen by Percy.

Maybe short staffed out of season, try emailing. I would not expect problems as I have always found them very reliable.
