The official branding is 'Summer Trains to Exeter from Okehampton', but most of us still know it as the Sunday Rover. Whatever you call it, the Exeter - Okehampton service, operated by Great Western Railway, with financial support from Devon County Council, will operate on Sundays between May 21st and September 10th inclusive.

July 4th update - Please note that the temporary speed restriction on the line has now been removed, and the service will operate to its original timetable, as below:
