The train from London Paddington
The train from London Paddington
Plymouth station serves the city of Plymouth. It is on the northern edge of the city centre close to the North Cross roundabout. It has the largest number of passengers starting and finishing their journeys at any station in the county, and is the largest of the six surviving railway stations in the city, being the only one served by InterCity trains.
Originally named Plymouth North Road, it was opened in 1877 as a joint station for the Great Western Railway (GWR) and the London and South Western Railway (LSWR). It was expanded in 1908 but a major rebuilding scheme that started in 1938 was delayed by the Second World War and was not completed until 1962.
It is operated by First Great Western, being on the Exeter to Plymouth line 225.75 miles by track from London Paddington station and has train services operated by them and CrossCountry. The Panel Signal Box at the station controls all trains between Totnes in Devon, and Liskeard in Cornwall.
