Lympstone Commando Railway Station

Facts and Figures

Lympstone Commando railway station is a railway station on the branch line from Exeter to Exmouth in Devon, England. The station is a rare example of a passenger station not open to the general public; it is exclusively for the use of visitors to the Royal Marine Commando Training Centre at Lympstone, despite being accessible by means of a public footpath. The Ministry of Defence have accepted that it is the property of Network Rail, and as such they cannot prohibit members of the public from alighting at the station, although exit from the station is through a locked gate.
