SY2596 : Once double track

taken 8 years ago, near to Seaton Junction, Devon, Great Britain

Once double track
Once double track
Looking towards Axminster this was once the double track LSWR mainline from Waterloo leading west via Exeter to North Devon, North Cornwall and Plymouth via Okehampton.Now a single line west of Salisbury at least some investment is taking place and a loop is being installed at Axminster ready for the new timetable which starts December 2009. This will mean a more intensive service will be available. Shame the line was singled in the mid 60s in the first place.
