GWR Sunday service to Okehampton

We have received no information about the 2020 service, but with the railway in administration, and the coronavirus restrictions, it seems very unlikely that it will run this year.

The official branding is 'Summer Trains to Exeter from Okehampton', but most of us still know it as the Sunday Rover. The service is operated by Great Western Railway, with financial support from Devon County Council. The 2019 service has now finished. We will make an announcement about the 2020 service as soon as possible.

In 2019, a bus service between Gunnislake and Okehampton was reinstated, making it possible to do a circular tour of Dartmoor on a summer Sunday using the Gunnislake branch, the Exeter-Plymouth main line, the Exeter-Okehampton branch and the bus service (or the opposite direction of course). There's a comprehensive report of such a journey here.
