Above: The final section of the Exe Estuary Cycle Trail was officially opened on 26 November 2014. This section from Turf Lock to Powderham includes a new footbridge over the railway line at Powderham replacing a foot crossing. While the new bridge is aimed at bike riders and walkers, it will also provide a new vantage point to record pictures of trains. The structure is good for down trains viewed from the River Exe side in the mornings and good for both up and down views in the afternoon from the land side. On its first day of official opening, Colas Rail Freight Class 70 No. 70808 approaches the bridge with the 12.15 Exeter Riverside Yard to Tavistock Junction loaded ballast train.
