Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Dawlish railway station is on the Exeter to Plymouth line and serves the town of Dawlish in Devon, England. The station and line is built on the sea wall, and has often suffered from storm damage due its proximity to the sea. South of the station the line passes through five tunnels through the cliffs as it follows the coast. The station was opened by the South Devon Railway on 30 May 1846. The strange wall with bricked up windows that can be seen in the car park is the remains of the engine house that used to power the trains while they were worked by atmospheric power from 13 September 1847 until 9 September 1848. At this time it was one of Isambard Kingdom Brunel's 7 ft 0 1 4 in broad gauge railways.show more
