South Devon and Tavistock Railway (Ex)

The South Devon and Tavistock Railway linked Plymouth with Tavistock in Devon; it opened in 1859. It was extended by the Launceston and South Devon Railway to Launceston, in Cornwall in 1865.
For a period it carried the standard gauge (then referred to as narrow gauge) trains of the London and South Western Railway between Lydford and Plymouth: a third rail, making mixed gauge was provided.
The line closed in 1962. A short section has since been reopened as a preserved line by the Plym Valley Railway.
National Cycle Network Route 27 follows much of the course of the railway as does, The West Devon Way
