Devon Belle Steam Train approaching Kingswear Station
The Devon Belle steam train runs to Paignton from Kingswear. It travels along the River Dart estuary opposite Dartmouth then through the countryside to Churston, over the two Brunel viaducts at Broadsands beach and then on into Paignton. Connections can be made with mainline services.

Essentially, this is a tourist attraction, but locals use and enjoy the trip. It is a particularly memorable excursion, especially when the weather is good and the views are seen to best effect.

The train has about half a mile to go to Kingswear station. An announcement was being made that this would be the last train of the day and that anyone on the station not intending to travel on the 5 p.m. train should leave the station as it would be locked up. The train service is run by a small company.
