Welcome!
Regardless of global pandemics, Christmas will still take place and we want to welcome everyone to the Plym Valley Railway to relax, see Santa and spend some quality time with families and loved ones.  We have worked hard to operate safely in a COVID secure manner to ensure the safety of our visitors and volunteers at all times.  


Due to social distancing measures we are only allowing one group per compartment/table. Therefore these can be purchased as a whole. Compartments, situated in First Class, hold up to six people and tables, located in Standard Class, hold up to four. 

We currently cannot accept any bookings larger than six. 

Pre-booking is essential. Pay on the Day (POD) seats will only be available if there are seats not sold. Check five days before travelling and the number of pay on the day seats will be displayed below. POD seats will be able to be purchased from Marsh Mills station at 10am on the day of travel for all services. Children aged between two and fifteen will all receive a gift from Father Christmas’ elves. Under 2s on a lap travel free without a gift from Father Christmas. 

As a COVID Secure organisation, social distancing measures will be adhered to and will be in place for your safety and the safety of others.
