Ride both beautiful branches on a Class 143 Pacer. The branch from Exmouth to Exeter hugs the shore of the wide River Exe estuary for the start of its 9 mile journey to Exmouth Junction. At Exeter St Davids, this limited stop service then runs for almost 38 miles. Enjoy lovely rural North Devon countryside all the way to the terminus at Barnstaple, filmed in summer sunshine.
Description from supplier: We travel over both lines on one service, formed of a class 143 Pacer. The branch from Exmouth to Exeter hugs the shore of the wide River Exe estuary for the start of its 9 miles to Exmouth Junction, where it joins with the former LSWR main line from Waterloo. At Exeter St Davids, this limited stop service heads over the Barnstaple branch. The single line runs for 37? miles, the first section through Crediton being over the former LSWR main line into Plymouth and North Cornwall. Here we pass the down train. At Eggesford another train is passed and we follow the token exchange procedure from the signal box at Crediton. Our train then continues through rural North Devon countryside to the terminus at Barnstaple in glorious summer sunshine.
