27th July 2012. Special thanks to Sereny of the Dartmouth Steam Railway & River Boat Co. who created our special one-off ticket and made it all work so smoothly. I thought customer service was a thing of the past - I was wrong.
Our journey by steam train began at Paignton, stopping off at the recently built Greenway Halt to visit Agatha Christie's summer retreat. It was then back on the train and on to the terminus at Kingswear where we boarded the ferry for the short hop across the River Dart to Dartmouth. Lunch in the park with accordion accompaniment was followed by the journey back to Torquay on board the Dart Venturer. A truly grand day out!
