North Devons Tarka Line has been chosen for a new national website to promote local railways to tourists. The project has been made possible thanks to a £75,000 grant through the Department for Transports Heritage and Community Rail Tourism Innovation Competition. The site will promote the regions community rail links and heritage railways to people around the world. The project is led by the Association of Community Rail Partnerships (ACoRP) and supported by Devon and Cornwall Rail Partnership (DCRP). Manager Richard Burningham said they were delighted to receive funding for the site, which would help attract more tourists to Devon and boost the local economy. When it is launched next year it will be accompanied by an international marketing campaign, translated into European languages.
