Dittisham Princess Departs from Dartmouth Station Pontoon

Photographs  John H. Luxton 2013

DITTISHAM PRINCESS is seen departing from Dartmouth Station Pontoon on the 13:30 Harbour Cruise. DITTISHAM PRINCESS was built for G.H. Riddals & Sons in 1995. It was acquired by the Dart Valley Railway plc on the acquisition of the G.H. Riddalls business in 2000.

The former GWR station building, which is now a restaurant and takeaway was the only station on the Great Western Railway network which did not have any trains. However, it was served by the GWR, later British Railways (Sealink) ferry service from Kingswear, station. The original GWR timber and steel pontoon was replaced in 1986 by the present concrete structure.
