As part of the celebrations to mark the 140th anniversary of the opening of the line during the year, a specially prepared 128 page soft cover book, “The South Devon Railway Past & Present Companion” with over 200 colour and mono illustrations written by SDR Museum Curator John Brodribb has been produced by Silver Link Publishing and is available in the SDR’s Expressway Models shop.
Silver link Publications will be setting up a stand outside the Refreshment Rooms on Saturday, Sunday and Monday, Jubilee weekend. The subscriber edition will be available for collection and the softback version will be on sale. We understand the SDR DVD may also be here for sale.
With a large free car park at Buckfastleigh, and the station situated just off the A38 Devon Expressway, the SDR is just 25 minutes from Plymouth, Exeter and Torbay. There are several public car parks and also connections with the mainline rail network at Totnes.
