Exeter West junction
Exeter West junction
Looking south from the platforms at Exeter St David's station connection to the former Southern Railway station at Exeter Central can be seen turning left and starting to climb steeply. The line straight ahead is the former GWR West of England Main Line to Newton Abbott, Plymouth and Penzance.

The large signal box that used to sit in the "V" of the junction is now preserved at Crewe Heritage Centre. See LinkExternal link

It is possible for trains to London to depart either away from the photographer to the left via the ex-Southern Line or towards the photographer on the ex-GWR Main Line via Taunton!
