The Paignton & Dartmouth Railway
The Paignton & Dartmouth Railway
  • Description

In the great days of steam the ‘Torbay Express’ ran from London’s Paddington Station to Torquay, Paignton and Kingswear where a Great Western Railway-operated ferry took travellers to a station across the water at Dartmouth. Nowadays diesel-hauled trains terminate at Paignton but across the platform memories of those halcyon days live on courtesy of the Paignton and Dartmouth Railway, which operates steam-hauled trains along the Paignton to Kingswear branch in true GreatWestern Railway tradition.

Renowned photographer Mike Heath and his family have visited this, their favourite area, a number of times in each of the last twenty-five years allowing Mike to capture the line in all seasons and weathers! Here he takes us on a photographic journey along the route. He highlights the diversity of the superb Devon coastal and riverside scenery through which the railway passes, the beautiful old world charm of its destination, Dartmouth, and shows why the area has attracted thousand of visitors each and every year since Victorian times.

For well over twenty-five years Mike Heath has enjoyed combining his hobbies of photography and visiting preserved railways all over Britain. In that time he has amassed a vast collection of stunning photographs covering all aspects of the railways across all four seasons, day and night. For this, his eighth book in the Halsgrove Railway Series, Mike has ventured to the SouthWest of England for a personal photographic journey on the Paignton & Dartmouth Steam Railway.
