Paignton railway station was opened on the 2nd August 1859 by the Dartmouth and Torbay Railway who were part of the South Devon Railway. Two years later, the line was extended to Brixham. Several years later, the SDR was amalgamated into the Great Western Railway and soon after that, the broad gauge layout was converted to the standard gauge that is still in use today. In the late 1920s, carriage sidings were built behind the southbound platform and then in 1930, a new station, known as Queens Park was built there to accommodate trains running down to Kingswear. This branch line was transferred in to private hands in the early 1970s and today you can still take a steam hauled train to Kingswear.
