Train Service Information

See also Train Fares information.

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

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

Days we are open

The railway operates almost every day (with just a few exceptions) from late March to early November. During December we are open for Santa Specials and Mince Pie Specials.

Blue Days are low season and Green Days, high season. Red Days are for Special Events when a more intensive train service may be operating. There is an entrance fee on our two Gala Days, refer to our Special Events page for more information.
