Index prepared by Michael Steer

This index was produced from a digital copy of the book, which can be downloaded from: https://books.google.com/ Google, in partnership with a number of public libraries has sought to make more widely accessible, old, hard-to-get books on which copyright has expired. The book provides an insight into the earliest years of the South Devon Railway. It was a 7 feet 0¼ inch broad gauge railway engineered by Isambard Kingdom Brunel. The first section of the line to be opened was from Exeter to Teignmouth in 1846. It was extended to Newton Abbot later that year and reached Totnes in 1847. It reached a temporary station at Laira on the outskirts of Plymouth in 1848 and finally the permanent terminus at Plymouth in 1849. The company built its offices outside that station. The line was extended a short distance into the new Plymouth Great Western Docks in 1850 and in 1853 opened a branch to the older Plymouth harbour at Sutton Pool by converting a part of the Plymouth and Dartmoor Railway to broad gauge.
