About this event

Following on from previous successful visits to the Paignton & Dartmouth Steam Railway we are pleased to be bringing you another opportunity that for many will be the best combination we've offered to date.

Our event will be the first opportunity to photograph Lydham Manor in her new BR Lined Green Livery, she will be paired with 4 Chocolate and Cream MK1 Coaches. 

Our visit in March 2024, the 7th & 8th to be precise we believe will see the railway at it best photographically with the sun being that bit high than on previous February visits. This visit will see us travel on the train throughout the day and we will visit many of the classic location the line has to offer, these among others include, Waterside, Broadsands Viaduct and of course the wonderful Maypool Viaduct; a location that will benefit immensely for the time of year when there are no leaves on the trees.  

Our day will start and finish at Paignton and as it is March and the sun rises earlier we plan to start each day at 07.00, with an extended lunch break with the event finishing up at around 17:00. On the first day (this event), 7827 will face Smokebox to Kingswear with her then being turned to face into Paignton for the following day (8th March). All locations will be confirmed nearer the time but be assured we will do our best to fit in as much as physically possible on each day. 

Each day will be different so booking both days will really offer you some wonderful photographic opportunities. If you have yet to sample a TimeLine Event at this railway you will be in for a real treat, as anyone that has been with us before will tell you just how accommodating they are.
