Dartmouth Steam Railway & River Boat Company, Queens Park Station, TQ4 6AF Paignton

A group of us have decided to raise money for the charity, Samaritans. 

The Samaritans provide invaluable support within all industries but recently in the railway industry we have had an increase in fatalities across the network. We have decided to come together with local businesses to raise much needed money for a charity who help families cope with the devastating effects of everyone involved in suicide. The Samaritans also provide invaluable suicide prevention training to workers across the railway industry. 

We are running a track and traction railtour in conjunction with The Paignton and Dartmouth Railway covering non passenger lines, across the railway, utilising the railways diesel traction. Full timings will be confirmed nearer the time but the departure time is confirmed as 1050 in the morning, with arrival meet and greet at 1030. We estimate we will be arriving back at Paignton Queens Park Station at 1730, the latest.

There will be a trolley of light refreshments on the train which will be chargeable. The trolley will be operated by the Dartmouth Steam Railway and you will have the opportunity to purchase lunch at The Weary Ploughman during an hour's lunch break. 

We are running a raffle on board the train which will be cash only, currently prizes have been donated by TOC's and major retailers the money raised from this raffle will be donated to Mind Charity
