Currently, Great Western Railway only operates train services to Okehampton on summer Sundays. In Investing in the South West published on 15 February 2019, the Secretary of State said he wanted to bring regular train services back to Okehampton. A Strategic Vision for Rail published on 29 November 2017 made clear that all schemes for reopening railway lines would need to demonstrate a strong business case where they are seeking any available Government funding
