It's not quite clear from the pics within the linked article, but is this going to be on the site of the existing depot, immediately to the west of the station platforms?

I think there is a previous thread with more details.  Can't remember when.

TC, yes, if you know Exeter the road crossing depicted in the second image is Red Cow Croosing just before trains enter Exeter St. Davids station. The view of the station is that looking south towards Newton Abbott.

There was this one ... called, um, "New depot for Exeter" - last post a year ago.

Thanks Stuving, that would be the one. Perhaps a friendly Mod could join them together some time.   Smiley

Yes, I'm familiar with that crossing that goes over about 6 tracks. Location makes sense now, thanks.

I'm asking as I have some younger family members in Student Accommodation very close by!

Men in orange gear were on site yesterday doing preliminary site clearance. Don't think the El Big Boss was one of them!

Would include a picture if only I knew how to :-(

Staff told me that, in connection with the site work, platform 6 at Exeter will be shut for a couple of weekends in February.
