MAIN LINE to the WEST Part 3 Yeovil to Exeter

The Southern Main Line to the West between Basingstoke, Salisbury and Yeovil has previously been described in Parts One and Two, Part Three continues the story on to Exeter. The characteristic feature of this main line is illustrated by station and signal box names - Yeovil Junction, Chard Junction, Axminster (Junction for Lyme Regis), Seaton Junction, Sidmouth Junction and Exmouth Junction. Principal Waterloo expresses often passed towns like Crewkerne, Axminster and Honiton, but then stopped at junction stations in almost uninhabited countryside. This feature of six branch line junctions in less than 50 miles was on the one hand fascinating for railway enthusiasts but on the other hand frustrating for passengers travelling to and from towns and villages away from the main line, particularly after the Beeching closures.
