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 is Mr John Haslam email: john.haslam@southdevonrailway.org or call 01364 644375

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