1946 Seaton Junction (Courtesy Matthew Pinto) James Ayres (FB) comments "The truck is a Bedford of the W series that was produced from the mid 1930s to the 1950s with a break for the War years. With its 6 cylinder ohv engine it was well-liked as a quick and powerful mover. Back in the 1930s, provided vehicles had two side-lights they were not obliged to have two headlamps. Similar cost-cutting meant that many vehicles had only one mechanical windscreen wiper.""

1950's Egg Transport - Eggs for London.  James Ayres explains "The wagon is a Southern Railway design made of planks on a steel frame and roofed with felt. Its loaded weight was 12 tons. The letter N at each end of the frame indicate it was fitted with vacuum brakes. They were not of a standard design so the wagon could not be used for freight by rival companies and had to be returned to the Southern. As this particular unit, the property of the Express Dairy, was probably configured inside to accommodate its fragile load it doubtless spent at least half its life running empty.

1957 Peggy (left) and Doris (right) Wilkins at the Seaton Junction egg depot. Christine Richards comments "That's Peggy and Doris (Wilkins), twins who worked in Honiton Egg depot when I was there. Stayed friends till they both passed away. I was very fond of them, remember Peggy calling people who she could not remember their names Deary, I often think of them now." James Ayres comments "The vehicle in the background is an S-type Bedford tractor unit made by Vauxhall (General Motors) throughout the 1950s. Most often seen in a rigid chassis it was offered with a choice of petrol or diesel engines. The spokes of the ladies' chain-wheels spell a word. 'Triumph' perhaps?

1995 Seaton Junction Station "This long time closed station, on the line between Axminster & Honiton was, in its heyday, quite a large establishment. A large milk depot, cattle pens, offices and adjacent hotel. The Station was originally named Colyton for Seaton. When the branch to Seaton was opened it was renamed Colyton Junction and subsequently Seaton Junction. There were extensive goods sidings and 4 tracks through the station.

2013 Seaton Junction Railway Station, originally named 'Colyton for Seaton'; the station opened on 19 July 1860 on completion of the Exeter extension of the London and South Western Railway from Yeovil Junction to Exeter Queen Street. With the opening of the Seaton and Beer Railway on 16 March 1868 the name was changed to 'Colyton Junction' before finally becoming 'Seaton Junction' on 18 July 1869. The steady decline in holiday traffic resulting from increased car ownership in the 1960s led to a gradual run down of services and the branch line and junction station closed on 7 March 1966.
