Quick Details


We’ve gone Eggstra crazy at the Dartmoor Railway this Easter, join us on Easter Sunday 21st April and meet a very special guest, the wonderful Peppa Pig™. Peppa is joining us for the fantastic Easter Train Ride which is running to a scheduled timetable throughout the day. Climb aboard the train departing from our Okehampton Station and enjoy a short scenic trip with fun music and take part in completing the piggy themed Easter egg trail! For every child who finds all the clues to crack the code and complete the trail there’s a special prize of a free chocolate Easter egg.

Once the train has chugged its way to Meldon Station we will depart to the secret garden where Peppa Pig™ will be making exclusive appearances on stage during story time which is led by a narrator.

Make the most of a wonderful day out for the whole family and enjoy the fantastic facilities that the Dartmoor Railway has to offer. Lunch in the Old Station Tea Room or enjoy a delicious cream tea at Meldon Buffet Carriage overlooking the Dartmoor National Park. You can even choose to take a later train back to Okehampton station and take a leisurely walk out onto the moor.

At our beautiful Okehampton Station there will be extra fun activities to take part in such as face painting and Peppa themed crafts and games. Help Percy the station cat find all the hiding naughty mice with our new Station Pest Controller challenge and visit the brand new attractions for 2019 the Humbug Old Sweetshop and Visitor Centre and Withered Arms Pub. There is also a museum and volunteers shop to explore.

There is ample free parking at Okehampton Station.

In the unlucky event of wet weather the Storytime with Peppa entertainment will be moved to an undercover location. All activities will still be fully functioning.

Food and beverages are available for purchase at this event.


This ride has booth-style seating for two or four people. Your ticket includes the round-trip train ride and entertainment. Please call us for availability of ADA seating.
