The Okehampton line from Exeter was a main line railway some sixty miles in length which for almost a century provided an alternative route to Plymouth. It passed through spectacular countryside as well as the important market town of Tavistock which boasted Sir Francis Drake as one of its notable residents.
This book gives a detailed account of all aspects of the line between Cowley Bridge and Devonport Junctions, together with some background of the railway beyond at Exeter and Plymouth. A full description of the line including maps, track and signalling diagrams and many photographs, mostly previously unpublished, complete we hope, a definitive account of THE OKEHAMPTON LINE.
