The Plym Valley Railway was founded in 1980 with an aim of restoring part of the ex-Great Western branch line from Plymouth to Tavistock that was closed in 1962. The first milestone, Marsh Mills to World’s End, was complete in September 2001. The second milestone, Marsh Mills to Lee Moor Crossing was opened in May 2008 which allowed passengers to ride 3/4 mile of track along the Plym Valley.

On December 30th 2012 Plym Bridge Platform was opened to the public. This marked 50 years and a day since the line was closed, and also the completion of the laying of 1.5 miles of track. On selected days we run train services from Marsh Mills to Plym Bridge.

Marsh Mills 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.

The railway is always looking for new and enthusiastic volunteers in all departments, including motive power, permanent way, carriage and wagon, building and works, fundraising and retail outlets– for further details please ask the staff in the Buffet.
