Opening Date Announced For Dartmoor Line

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Railnews.

This is the first couple of sentences.

Full train services will return to the Dartmoor Line in Devon on 20 November. The Department for Transport said the DfT and its partners had ‘accelerated’ the reopening of the railway, because passenger services will now be launched only nine months since funding was approved.

It also says that the initial service between Exeter and Okehampton will be two-hourly, until May 2022, when it will be hourly.

I have looked up the Great Western Railway timetable and there are two sensible morning trains between Paddington and Okehampton on the 24th of November.

  • 08:04 – Arrives at 11:18
  • 10:04 – Arrives at 13:17

Returning there are two sensible afternoon/evening trains.

  • 15:24 – Arrives at 18:24
  • 18:20 – Arrives at 21:36

It looks like it would be possible to go from London and Okehampton and return in the same day.
