About Feniton Station

Feniton railway station serves the village of Feniton in Devon, England. It was opened by the London and South Western Railway (LSWR) in 1860 but is now operated by trains that provide services on the London Waterloo to Exeter route.
It has been known by several different names, but from 1874 to 1967 it was Sidmouth Junction while it was the junction for branch lines through Budleigh Salterton to Sidmouth and Exmouth. The platform is on the south side of the line, east of the level crossing of Ottery Road. It is only long enough for 3 car trains so only the doors on the front unit are opened if the train is longer. The disused eastbound platform still stands but the goods yard site is now occupied by houses.
