The Seaton Tramway is a 2 ft 9 in (838 mm) narrow gauge electric tramway which operates over part of the route of a former London & South Western Railway branch line to Seaton, Devon. The line was converted between 1969 and 1971 by Claude Lane, who had bought the line from British Rail and had successfully operated trams in Eastbourne as a visitor attraction.
The 3-mile (4.8 km) route runs through East Devon's Axe Valley, between the coastal resort of Seaton (Seaton Tram Station) and the small village of Colyford and the ancient town of Colyton.
Thirteen tram cars are part of the visitor attraction which sees about 80,000 visitors per year. The tram cars are half-scale (1:2) replicas of classic British tram cars from various cities; some were rebuilt from full-size cars which originally ran on other networks. Number 19 is the only tram from the Exeter tram system which is still in service.
