Devon Group Rail trip to Okehampton

On Sunday 6th August 14 L&B Trust members (taking advantage of the current  summer Sunday only trains to Okehampton) travelled from Barnstaple and Exeter on the former LSWR main line to Okehampton.

2. The station here was restored many years ago but still retains a Southern Railway heritage look.

3. All the visitors enjoy some refreshments on the platform.

4. After lunch some of the gang sampled Dartmoor Railway's DEMU service to Meldon Viaduct. Class 205 unit 1132 awaits at Okehampton.

5. Then trains back to Exeter with time for some of us to pop down to Newton Abbot for a pint at the busy Railway pub next to the station.
