The Plym Valley Railway has re-built a one and a half 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 artifacts to recreate the atmosphere of a bygone age.
We operate passenger trains on selected days over a section of the line from our station at Marsh Mills to Plym Bridge Platform.
New and enthusiastic volunteers are needed in all departments, including Motive Power, Permanent Way, Carriage and Wagon, Building and Works, fund raising and retail outlets.
Next Running day - June 23rd with 50017 - Royal Oak
Train timetable for June 23rd: Trains run from 13.00 till 16.00 on the hour from Marsh Mills, and starting from 13.30 till 16.30 on the half hour from Plym Bridge Platform.
The centre is normally open to visitors every Sunday from 11:00.
