IMPORTANT – brown and yellow timetables

Those of you, who have spotted that the last up train of the day does not stop at Stogumber, will be pleased to know that it now WILL stop at Stogumber. After pressure from stationmaster Alan Bines, WSR have announced that this train on the brown and yellow timetables will stop at Stogumber, a victory for commonsense. The train is the three unit DMU.

The portion from the yellow timetable is shown below. Stogumber remains an ideal station from which to start and finish your journey. We have parking for a number of cars, a buffet and restrooms.


Remember, this train will stop at Stogumber.
