SOUTH DEVON RAILWAY’s Carriage and Wagon Department

The South Devon Railway’s Carriage and Wagon Department is now part of South Devon Railway Engineering and has a small dedicated band of volunteers and staff who not only maintain our fleet of historic vehicles but also carry out rebuilds and conversions as necessary to allow the South Devon Railway to meet the changing needs of our passengers.

Previously in C&W:
BR MkI SO 4785 has now returned to the servicable fleet after its restoration with the correct crown cut Elm veneered ply lining. It has also been wired to allow table lamps for dining train service and, new for 2018, is being used for Sunday lunches and afternoon teas on certain days. To book a table please use our online booking system.

Carriage roof boards; 2 new for 1295 and 2 repainted for 276 ( which are nearly 20 years old )
