Because the former alingment is almost entirely covered with a median strip the width of the former alignment, it is really easy to follow it all the way to Semaphore. So what has happened over the past 30 years since the line was closed?
At the former junction at Glanville, the median strip begins almost as soon as the curve finished. From here to the former site of Exeter railway station, the median strip is littered with ballast in the sand. The third phot is about halfway between the junction and the site of Exeter railway station.
Around Woolnough Road is the former Exeter railway station. It is fitting that there should be a bus stop at this location. Around here is where the median strip is no longer towards one side of Semaphore Road and shifts towards the middle of the road. Quite a few of the buildings around here date from the period the railway was in use.
Military Road intersection.
The final section down Semaphore Road. As you can probably tell, this section has had nearly all physical traces (like the left over ballast) removed and covered over. Over the past 30 years, you would not think that there ever was a railway here for 100 years.
This train terminates here.
