Driver training 

The Dartmoor line between Okehampton and Exeter will be reopening for regular passenger services later this year. Before the line can formally open, GWR need to train the drivers who will operate the new services. This involves trains being driven at line speed along the route so the drivers can familiarise themselves with the operational requirements. The training will start on 20 September and last for 6-8 weeks. This means there will be frequent trains operating along the line and for your safety, please ensure you do not access the line.
