"Codswallop"[edit]

What a load of "codswallop" - if you want to bang on about trainspotting and self gratification then why don't you set up another website? This website offers very little in the way of traveller information, station or regional facilities - in short it's a very poor website. Not even a mention of the station being a link to Exeter International Airport!!! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 212.240.75.244 (talkcontribs) 11:34, 25 July 2007 (UTC)

Other stations[edit]

FWIW, I think the other six stations in Exeter are:

Uniqueness[edit]

St David's is unique in that it is the only station in the country where trains depart from either end to reach London [...]

No, it isn't: other examples include:

(all in Kent: trains head to Charing Cross in one direction and Victoria in the other);

(in Hampshire: trains to Waterloo head west, trains to Victoria head east);

(all GNER services to Kings Cross leave from the east, but the sleeper service to Euston heads west);

(most GNER services leave via the west end, but some head east so to by-pass Wakefield).

There are also the stations on the South London Line, which runs between Victoria and London Bridge.

So Exeter St Davids is anything but unique in this regard! --RFBailey 09:14, 24 October 2005 (UTC)

Popular Culture[edit]

No reference to the appearance of the station in the opening sequence of The French Lieutenant's Woman (film)? --Fremsley (talk) 13:01, 8 April 2008 (UTC)
