THE ROUTE The line to Paignton branches off from the South Devon Main Line just south of Newton Abbot and is around nine miles in length.
The first section of the line from Newton Abbot to Torquay (the present Torre railway station) opened in December 1848. Driving south from Newton Abbot, the railway expands out to four tracks. Two tracks heading towards Penzance turn westwards at Aller junction whilst the two for Paignton carry on due south and past the remains of the former Kingskerswell railway station. You can still see the platforms there.
At Torre station you can see the disused signal box on the eastbound platform. This box was unusually tall so that the signalman could look over the footbridge to see trains approaching up the steep gradient. The route now descends towards Torquay station; it was opened in 1859, although today's buildings and old signal box date from 1878.
The line passes a headland at Preston before the dropping down into Paignton, with more views of the beaches and sea. Immediately outside Paignton station is a busy level crossing situated right in the town centre. The ticket office is now located in the 1859 goods shed. The Paignton and Dartmouth Steam Railway is situated alongside on the western side of the station.
