Description

Plympton

This article describes the South Devon and Tavistock Railway and the Launceston and South Devon Railway, associated broad gauge railway companies operating between Plymouth and Launceston in England. 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. it made a nice easy walk.
