Okehampton platform 2 siding extension project stage 2


29/07/2017


Prompted by security fears after the recent vandal attack on the Polar Express stock at Meldon, work has started on a further extension of the platform 2 siding at Okehampton. The plan is to add 330 metres of track, roughly on the formation of the former down line, so that the 11 car Polar Express train can be stabled in safety at Okehampton. We will post updates on this page from time to time.
