Regular Okehampton services next summer.
A business case for the reinstatement of services between Exeter and Okehampton has been submitted to the Department for Transport. The restoration of the service has been the subject of a Project Speed initiative by Network Rail, which has achieved a 24-month time saving and a £32.8 million reduction in costs.
