PAIGNTON & DARTMOUTH STEAM RAILWAY The scenery on this picturesque line is breathtaking – from Paignton along the spectacular English Riviera Geopark coastline, through the pretty stations of Goodrington and Churston, then on through the wooded slopes of Long Wood bordering the Dart Estuary to Greenway Halt, Dame Agatha Christie’s estate and on to Kingswear. From here you board a foot ferry across the river Dart to the historic town of Dartmouth; home to Britannia Royal Naval College, Bayards cove and Dartmouth Castle.
