The DRSA shop located on Platform 2 at Okehampton Station has opened for business and is proving popular with visitors to the station and providing a welcome income stream for DRSA. More stock is always needed so if you are having a clear-out of your unwanted railway books, videos, DVDs, model railway items or anything else with a railway connection these would be most welcome. Our shop organiser, Christine Horner can be contacted by on christine.horner@talk21.com or 01363 82383.

During the 2018 running season, subject to volunteer availability the shop will be open on Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays between 1100 and 1500. Other days and times are possible by special arrangement.

Items for sale include:
  • A good selection of second hand railway books plus some books on other transport systems such as buses and trams
  • Second hand railway videos and DVDs (can be checked in the shop)
