The Wedding Express

We love discovering new ideas for our wedding parties to consider – and this one is a real winner!

The Wedding Express is a portable miniature railway that can come to Escot as part of your wedding fun. It can be used as an unusual backdrop for your wedding photographs, or as a wonderful ride for your guests (large and small) to enjoy.

History

The 10 1/4 gauge diesel train is called the Exmouth Express and for years was enjoyed by visitors to the fun park on the seafront. The train was removed in 2017 when the fun park was closed.  But where did it go?

In 2019 the search began and the Exmouth Express was eventually found in Lapa Valley in Cornwall, left to rust. The train returned to Devon in March 2020 and during the pandemic was lovingly restored. The wheels were replaced, new running gear and brakes added and a brand new engine fitted.  The body work was improved and a cab put back on the locomotive.

After sanding down, the Exmouth Express was painted a lovely shade of green.
The main body of the locomotive is the 1978 original and the refurbished carriages come from the 1950s
Now the Exmouth Express can be your Escot Wedding Express!
There are four different packages available:
  1. Photo-only where the train isn’t operational
  2. Unlimited rides for weddings with up to 100 guests
  3. Unlimited rides for weddings with between 100 and 200 guests
  4. Unlimited rides for weddings with over 200 guests.
 You can dress the train with lights, flowers, bunting or something to reflect your wedding theme.
