|Locomotives (Steam and Diesel)||Coaches||Wagons|
The South Devon Railway has an interesting collection of both steam and diesel locomotives. The bias is towards former Great Western engines but there is also a healthy cross section of former industrial locomotives and also one broad gauge engine on loan from the National Railway Museum. Not all the engines are on the railway at once - some are out on hire from time to time to other railways and some are away being rebuilt under contract. Visiting engines may appear from time to time. Summary of Fleet
DieselLocomotives and Multiple Units.
The South Devon Railway has a small fleet of diesels which are used to provide power for works trains, shunting, extra trains at off peak times and emergency back-up. The largest locomotive is the Class 50 Diesel D50002 and the smallest a 150 h.p. Fowler diesel mechanical.
The South Devon Railway has at least 29 passenger carrying vehicles or full brakes making a representative cross section of former BR and Great Western vehicles. These vehicles have been obtained with the aim of providing the following sets in due course as they are gradually returned to working condition.
- Crimson and Cream Mark I set.
- Chocolate and Cream Mark I set./li>
- Great Western set.
- Auto Train.
- Victorian set for special occasions.
- Dining Train
The South Devon Railway has built up an interesting cross section of old freight wagons during recent years. The emphasis is on former Great Western vehicles but there are also a few from other pre-nationalisation companies plus newer B.R. vehicles and the usual utility vehicles that are needed to run and maintain a railway. The railway has a use for virtually all its goods vehicles even if for some it is just to form part of a vintage photographic freight train.
