The Dartmoor Railway is a 15+1/2mi long railway line in Devon, England. From Crediton the line parallels the Tarka Line to the site of the former Coleford Junction. Heading west it then serves Sampford Courtenay, Okehampton and Meldon Quarry. The route is owned from Coleford to Meldon by Aggregate Industries whilst the Coleford to Crediton section is owned by Network Rail. In the past freight trains served the ballast quarry at Meldon. The line is leased to and maintained by the Dartmoor Railway CIC, who operate some services and facilitate access to the line by other operators.A public service between Exeter and Okehampton is run on summer Sundays operated by Great Western Railway. Ballast and stone trains were formerly operated by one of the national freight operating companies. In 2011 the quarry was mothballed leading to the suspension of ballast and stone trains. The line is also used occasionally by other operators for training purposes. The railway is also visited from time to time by main line charter services. These can be easily facilitated via the connection to the national network at Crediton.
