The seaside resorts of East Devon between Lyme Bay and the Exe estuary have long been a popular holiday destination, with the railways playing an important role.

As an independent railway company until the 1923 grouping, the Sidmouth branch also served the rural communities of Ottery St Mary and Tipton St Johns.  By 1903 a branch line from Tipton St Johns to Exmouth via Budleigh Salterton completed the East Devon railway map.  This unique documentary includes over 40 minutes of archive cine film and follows the history of both lines from their earliest days until closure in 1967.  In the summer of 1963, we take a journey from Sidmouth Junction to Sidmouth in steam days, with scenes at Ottery St Mary and Tipton St Johns.  BR Standard Tank and M7 locomotives are seen in action.  The DMU era during the mid-1960s is well covered on a trip from Sidmouth, plus a journey from Tipton St Johns to Exmouth via Budleigh Salterton.

Highlights include a detailed station survey showing each location, lineside views, scenes at Exmouth's former SR station and local ferry to Starcross, plus a nostalgic ride on the 1965 LCGB East Devon Railtour behind steam on both branches.  The programme, which includes commentary, features interviews with former local railwaymen and a 'then and now' sequence looking at the two branch lines.
