The Dartmouth Steam Railway and River Boat Company has published the Timetable and Fares for PS Kingswear Castle in 2015 and details may be found here.
PS Kingswear Castle (1924) is a coal-fired river paddle steamer owned by the Paddle Steamer Preservation Society.
We are pleased to report that the engine and some related machinery from PS Compton Castle have been acquired by our associated charity Paddle Steamer Kingswear Castle Trust Ltd
Earlier today the Institution of Mechanical Engineers presented Kingswear Castle with an Engineering Heritage Award as a mark of her unique place in British maritime history.
Kingswear Castle is the Society’s coal fired river paddle steamer now on extended charter to the Dartmouth Steam Railway and Riverboat Company and used on summer excursions from Dartmouth and Totnes on the River Dart in South Devon.
Fifty summers ago, in 1964, there were still four paddle steamers operating on the Clyde, the Jeanie Deans, Waverley, Caledonia and Talisman.
