This new campaign calls for the all-but-disused Heathfield Branch line from Newton Abbot (with possible extensions up the old Mortenhampstead and Teign Valley track beds) to be used as a Park and Ride line, using Parry People Movers. These eco-friendly micro-trains are ideal because they have the ability to run as trams as well, so the line to Bovey Tracey could be a road upgrade. Parry People Movers are currently used on the Stourbridge Line in the West Midlands.
The Heathfield Branch line currently has just one freight train a week.
This campaign is in its infancy and would like to hear from any interested parties.
