ashes from a steam train

Steam Railway: an Ashes send off with a Toot Toot!

Steam trains are so enigmatic. They epitomise an age of style and engineering and they are a passion for many of us in the UK and beyond.

Well there may be an opportunity for you to have your ashes blown from the ash box (I think I have correct).

The South Devon Railway Trust –

The organisations runs the South Devon Railway operates  a line that runs for seven mile along the stunning valley of the River Dart between Buckfastleigh and Totnes.

It is a former Great Western Railway branch line, built in 1872.

Well they will consider a steam train send off for a donation (unspecified to us). They don’t want to make a big fuss about this so if it is something you think would be appropriate you will need to discuss it with them.

The gentleman to contact  trains@southdevonrailway.co.uk and the telephone number is 01364 644 370.

Best of luck, it sounds like a wonderful idea to us!!

      Dear Diane

      You would need to contact the train company.

      Kind regards
