The Dartmoor Railway Community Interest Company has announced that they have gone into administration.
This is a very sad time for everyone involved, involving people who run the railway and people in the background.
As this has only just been announced, there is no news on what will happen next for the railway and its workers.
The Dartmoor Railway is 15.5 miles long and runs in Devon, England. Leaving Crediton, the railway runs on the Tarka line to the former Coleford Junction. It then heads west to serve Sampford Courtenay, Okehampton and Meldon – the line from Crediton to Coleford Junction is owned by Network Rail and Aggregate Industries owns the line to Meldon.
The line is leased to the Dartmoor Railway CIC, who operates services and facilitate access to the line for use by other operators, such as Great Western Railway.
Last month, it was announced that both the Weardale Railway and the Dartmoor Railway was up for sale by owners, Iowa Pacific Holdings, based in Chicago.
