English Electric Weekend




Timetables and prices are now on the DRSA and DR Facebook pages.



On the weekend of June 8th and 9th, Dartmoor Railway will be running an English Electric Weekend, using the entire DR traction fleet, all of which is EE powered. A two train service will operate, including runs down to the Network Rail boundary and back. Sunday's service will be restricted to the Okehampton-Meldon section because of the GWR Sunday Rover service.
