This year celebrates the 150th anniversary Avocet Line
For 150 years the railway we now call the Avocet Line has served towns and villages from Exeter to Exmouth. It has carried tens of millions of passengers, especially commuters to Exeter, students to schools and colleges, and marines to the Commando Training Centre, as well as horses, fish and even munitions for D-Day.
1st May 2011 is exactly 150 years since the grand opening of the line. This page celebrates this event and links to the Avocet 150 sites.
ALRUG will be distributing 10,000 copies of a programme leaflet giving details of all events, which can also be found at www.avocet150.co.uk.
Also some old photos of the railway in Lympstone which can also be found at www.avocet150.co.uk/gallery/lympstone
