The first of two programmes in which Mike Arlett explores in some detail the former Southern Railway network of lines west of Exeter mostly in the last years of working steam.

Exeter to Barnstaple:- Exeter Central and St Davids Stations are visited before a trip along the picturesque line to Barnstaple. Including some superb colour material professionally filmed from the observation car of the Devon Belle shortly after the introduction of this famous but short-lived Pullman train.

Barnstaple & Ilfracombe:- Featuring mainly the climb over the very steep gradients on either side of Morthoe & Woolacombe station, but including Ilfracombe and more evocative colour film from the observation car of the Devon Belle.

Barnstaple to Torrington:-. The final passenger train; a special run by BR on a day when the weather more than matched this sad event.

Yeoford to Okehampton:-. A brief journey on board an enthusiast’s special.

Plymouth to Okehampton:- From Plymouth Friary, along the Tamar Valley and skirting the western side of Dartmoor, via Beer Alston and Tavistock, to arrive back at Okehampton.

Bere Alston to Callington:- Whilst travelling from Plymouth to Okehampton, a stop is made at Bere Alston for a look at the fascinating branch line to Gunnislake and Callington.

Finally a fascinating ‘Then & Now’ feature in which some of the locations featured earlier are revisited briefly early in 2009 to view what is left of the old stations and other infrastructure of this network of railway lines

Having watched our programme, if you are interested in learning much more about the network of former Southern lines west of Exeter, we can refer you to some superb books published by The Irwell Press: ‘The Okehampton Line’ is a detailed and fully illustrated portrayal of the Southern route from Exeter to Plymouth. ‘An Illustrated History of the North Cornwall Railway’ was reissued in 2008, a much enlarged edition of the original book – this really is an ‘A to Z’ of the route to Launceston, Wadebridge and Padstow.

Halwill to Bude:- The original route from Halwill as far as Holsworthy is featured briefly, together with the later extension onwards to Bude.

Halwill to Torrington:- A leisurely journey along the fascinating and grandly titled North & Cornwall Junction Light Railway, during which all the intermediate stations and halts are seen, with arrival at Torrington featuring both passenger and mixed trains.

Wadebridge to Padstow & Okehampton:- A trip down the scenic Camel Estuary to the end of the line at Padstow precedes a journey all the way along the route of the North Cornwall Railway to arrive back at Okehampton. This includes film shot from the footplate of a Maunsell Class U 2-6-0.

Finally a fascinating ‘Then & Now’ feature, in which some of the locations featured in the main programme are revisted briefly in early 2009 to view what is left of the old stations and other infrastructure of this network of railway lines.
