Trains Service Information

Currently trains operate between Woody Bay Station and Killington Lane Halt.

For more details of the reconstruction of this section please click HERE and HERE

We do not operate trains to either Lynton or Barnstaple. The rail service to these two destinations is currently suspended pending reconstruction of the railway.

You board your train - comprised of restored heritage carriages - at Woody Bay Station, and travel to Killington Lane and back on a two-mile round trip behind a narrow-gauge steam locomotive. The complete trip lasts about 25 minutes. Tickets are valid all day so you can ride as many times as you like. Return anytime within 28 days and travel all day at half-price

Advance booking is not required
