As well as the steam train journey between Paignton and Kingswear, customers will be able to use their valid Dartmouth national rail ticket at no additional cost on the Dartmouth Steam Railway and River Boat Company (DSRRB) foot passenger service between Kingswear and Dartmouth (the ferry crossing takes between 5 and 10 minutes). Customers are advised to leave Dartmouth 20-30 minutes before their DSRRB train from Kingswear towards Paignton to allow for connections to be made.
