Exeter Memories Once the Bristol and Exeter Railway had reached St David's Station in May 1844, the South Devon Railway company was formed to extend the line to Plymouth and beyond. Isambard Kingdom Brunel was engaged as engineer, and he proposed that the largely untested atmospheric propulsion system be used for the line. As the railway would extend the existing line, but be a different company, there was the opportunity to create a station closer to the city which would also serve as the headquarters of the railway.
Great Scenic Railways Departing from Exeter city centre, the train hugs the Exe Estuary and the coast offering amazing views.
It calls at seaside beauty spots like Dawlish and Teignmouth, and onwards to the glorious English Riviera. Here the train stops at Torre (closest for Torquay town centre), Torquay and Paignton. You’ll be on the beach in no time.
Dogs are welcome on the train.
Devon & Cornwall Rail Partnership The Riviera Line is one of the country’s best-loved railways, but hit the headlines in 2014 when it sustained devastating storm damage. Thanks to an EU-funded project led by the Devon and Cornwall Rail Partnership, we helped the line to bounce back even stronger than before.
Our EU Citizens’ Rail project (2012-2015) enabled the Partnership to work in depth on the Exeter-Paignton line for the first time. Funding from the Interreg IVB NWE programme, Devon County Council, Torbay Council and Great Western Railway (GWR) helped deliver additional services, station improvements, community engagement and a sustained marketing campaign for the line. This helped the line to rapidly recover from its eight-week closure in early 2014. In the year from October 2014 to October 2015, 3 million journeys were made on the Riviera Line.
