New waiting shelters have recently been installed at Exeter St Thomas (above) and Torre stations as part of Citizens’ Rail’s work to enhance The Riviera Line in Devon.
The shelters mark a big improvement at both stations. They offer passengers better facilities and an improved sense of personal safety compared with having to wait in the old, dark and window-less ones that have now been demolished.

The Devon & Cornwall Rail Partnership, Torbay Council and First Great Western visit the Torre shelter as it nears completion.
Local partners in Citizens’ Rail – which is 50% funded by the EU’s Interreg IVB programme – include Devon County Council, Torbay Council, First Great Western, Plymouth University and the Devon & Cornwall Rail Partnership.
