Steam Trains at Dawlish Warren
Steam Train Tours passing Dawlish Warren
This is one of the most Extraordinary and Scenic Railway Journeys in Europe. BBC Television hired helicopters to home-in on ‘The Torbay Express’ for its award-winning programme ‘Coast’, showing some wonderful aerial sequences of GWR ‘King’ No.6024 King Edward I ducking and diving around the red-sandstone inlets and coves, and bobbing between the tunnels along the sea wall near Teignmouth.
That really wasn’t a surprise, for the steam-hauled ‘Torbay Express’ and the old GWR ‘West of England Main Line’ together make one of the most enchanting railway journeys anywhere in the world.
Dawlish Warren is a great place to see Steam trains and take fantastic photographs!
