Our train services for 2017 will run DAILY from mid- March to the end of October. Most services are steam hauled. The Timetable can be viewed on the South Devon Railway Association website. It should be noted that some services this year, shown as "Green" days on the timetable will provide a THREE (not the previous standard four) train timetable.
Our main fares for 2017 are £15.00 Adult, and £.9.00 for Children age 3 to 15, under 3 travel free, and are provided with a souvenir ticket for travel. Senior Citizens travel for £14.00. A family ticket (2 adults + 2 children) is available at £43.00. Tickets are available for travel all day, and there are also tickets available to combine train travel with a visit to either, or both, the Rare Breeds Farm at Totnes and the Dartmoor Otters and Butterflies Centre at Buckfastleigh. There are currently no plans to run the vintage bus service on an every day basis to Buckfast Abbey, and then on through the town of Buckfastleigh before returning to the station for the year of 2017. There is however a notice on the notice board on the end of the station building at Totnes Littlehempston advising of some limited services being offered. The bus remains available for special event hire - like weddings, birthdays, etc. Full details are available from the website www.rm1872.org.uk.
Tickets should be purchased before travelling on the train. Please arrive 15 minutes before departure time. We are able to accept most plastic cards for payment.
In the picture below, David Hughes, the Roster Clerk for Totnes Littlehempston Station, checks the ticket rack for Train Tickets for the conveyance of Dogs, Prams and Bicycles, which are available at £1.00 each. We ask that dogs are kept on a lead at all times whilst on the railway.
Items posted in the Post Box at Totnes Littlehempston Station are conveyed by train, after receiving an impression to state that fact, and then enter the Royal Mail system.
NO CYCLING. Cycling is not permitted on the Bulliver Bridge, or up the footpath to the platform or on the platform itself.
