Dawlish Railway Station
A view of the seaward side of Dawlish Railway Station taken from the breakwater. The station is built on the sea wall, as is the railway line, and has often suffered from storm damage due to its proximity to the sea.

Dawlish Station was opened by the South Devon Railway on 30 May 1846 as part of Brunel’s “Atmospheric Railway” LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) . At this time it was one of Isambard Kingdom Brunel's 7 ft broad gauge railways LinkExternal link . The station initially had just one platform on the landward side with a loop line closer to the sea, but a second platform was added to serve the loop line in 1858. The South Devon Railway was amalgamated into the Great Western Railway on 1 February 1876, and on 20 May 1892 the line was converted standard gauge.
