About Us

The Torbay Express is owned by a group of private investors who, in addition to their individual business interests, share a common commitment to securing the future of the Torbay Express as a living example of our railway history.

Our executive team has extensive technical and financial experience in the promotion and operation of steam and heritage train excursions on the national rail system.  Investors include locomotive and rolling stock owners and other key professionals. This means that the main elements of the operation are captured within the Company itself and reliance on third parties is minimised. We work in partnership of DB Schenker and Riviera Trains Ltd in the operation of all our trains.

We are dedicated to providing our customers with a truly unique and memorable day out by steam train, reminiscent of the famous Torbay Express service from 50 years ago...
