Visit to Exeter and Teign Valley Railway

On Wednesday 13th May, 36 excited Dartmoor Society Members attended a very sunny and warm May meeting at Exeter and Teign Valley Railway, Christow Station, which is sited in part of the disused Christow Station goods yard, courtesy of a very kind invitation by Colin Burges. After a comprehensive introduction by Colin he left us to explore all the various photographs and railway features and exhibits such as his  two unique Camping Vans which he has personally named “Toad” and “Tadpole” as well as his own exhibition, and the highlight of the afternoon a ride on Colin’s manumotive, electromotive, observation saloon called “Jenny Wren.” This had moments of great speed and was a very pleasurable experience to all who had a ride in it. The afternoon was rounded off by a lovely tea and homemade cake and plenty of socialising on what turned out to be a perfect afternoon. Many thanks to Colin for his hospitality and enthusiasm, keep up the good work!
