Exeter

Western Region

Introduction

Perhaps most famous for the Dawlish sea wall, the Exeter area is well known for its varied and scenic railway interest.

Covering 70 miles of main line and around 90 miles more of branches (we've included Exmouth Jn and Crediton) means that Exeter has everything from DMUs to Voyagers to HSTs , with the odd freight thrown in for good measure!

Certain pinch points make regulation important on this layout, as do delays on the single lines. Knock-on delays are frequent.

Exeter is currently free to download and play, although Donations are gratefully received.
