Waterloo - Exeter railway former station Dinton
Waterloo - Exeter railway former station Dinton
Dinton station was closed to passengers on 7 March 1966 and to general goods traffic on 18 April 1967. Here is the view looking west towards Tisbury. However a number of sidings were retained for access to the various Ministry of Defence depots in the vicinity of the station, along with a section of the former up-line westwards to a depot at Chilmark. All these were out of use eventually by 2 November 1994 and subsequently much of the trackwork has been removed. The former Up platform remains in existence complete with the station buildings, which are in private ownership. The Waterloo - Exeter route is now a single line through Dinton.
