Closed Branch Lines of South Devon

This section of the website plans to explain the history of some of the closed branch lines in South Devon. During the Late 1950's and into the 60's many Branch Lines were closed under the 'Beechings' act towards the end of Steam. This was due to many of them costing far more to much to keep open; they therefore were making losses and it was decided that they were not worth keeping open due to low passenger numbers. Some of these lines include the Brixham branch, Kingsbridge branch, Ashburton Branch and the Moretonhemsted Branch. 

Currently Available:
