Hi thanks for letting me in. I am involved in a community forum called OkeRAIL trying to get passenger services re-introduced between Okehampton and Exeter. GWR run a summer Sunday service in partnership with Devon County Council.

Has anyone here used it? What are your thoughts on our line?

I'd love to hear from you as I am always looking for material for our FB page. (I won't advertise it until admins say it's ok).

Hello Kevin and welcolme to the forum. I generally have a run each year.  I did travel on the original services before it was discontinued way back in 1972.

We're perfectly happy with links and description for rail related sites and pages ... but thank you for asking.  And please feel free to post links back to us too!

Incidentally, there are more than 4 people in OkeRAIL Forum. There are 4 Directors of OkeRAIL CIC, of which I am one.

I hope that clears things up! Wink
