There is a good service across our network
Updated January 2021
Saturday 10 to Sunday 18 April 2021
From Saturday 10 to Sunday 18 April, Network Rail will be upgrading the track between Exeter St Davids and Barnstaple to provide a smoother, more comfortable journey and improve reliability on this important route.
They will also use this time to extend the platforms at Eggesford, allowing for easier access to/from our trains.
To allow this work to take place, train services on the branch line will be changed, with replacement buses operating along most of the line.
