Welcome to the Dartmoor Railway Suppporters' Association

Welcome to the website of the DRSA. We are an all volunteer organisation dedicated to supporting the Dartmoor Railway.

Urgent Announcement


Sadly our Thumper unit, 1132, has a major electrical fault which has defied all efforts to trace it, and it now looks very unlikely that heritage services between Okehampton and Meldon will start on Sunday 21st.

Would you like to become a Travelling Ticket Inspector on the Dartmoor Railway? See the Volunteers page.
