Steam Train by Nigel West

Dawlish station was opened by South Devon Railway on 30 March 1846 and was designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel. The station initially only had one platform on the left side of the station. In 1873 the station was burnt down and the current station was built. Since then the station has stayed much the same until the orange army were called upon after the storm of 2014.
