Boiler services


In 2010, South Devon Railway Engineering Ltd acquired the business of R K Pridham Engineering, one of the country's premier steam boiler specialists, with over 30 years' experience of manufacturing and repairing boilers for railway locomotives and traction engines.

We specialise in the manufacture and repair of locomotive and traction engine boilers with the emphasis on quality and maintaining authenticity. We pride ourselves on the standard of our work and our ability to tackle most jobs, sometimes breaking new ground in railway preservation. Our construction methods, wherever possible, adhere to the original design and production processes.

Our customers range from heritage railways and locomotive owners to quarries, hospitals, breweries and even a monastery. All work undertaken is undertaken under the constant scrutiny of regulatory bodies, including Network Rail, to ensure high standards.
