The story of how St. Paul and Minneapolis did it is full of lessons for other cities hoping to show that rail can be a key to revival. Twin Cities leaders found ways to persuade reluctant Republican legislators to contribute state funding to transit and, when that support dwindled, figured out how to fund a greater share of it themselves. They figured out that converting an old streetcar route back to transit after a half-century of automobile domination can be a wrenching change, one that demands special care to help small businesses survive. And perhaps most significantly, downtown power brokers had to be willing to significantly alter their plans when low-income people of color and immigrant businesspeople along the route insisted that a rail line that bypassed them, while benefiting people traveling between two downtowns, was not acceptable. Instead, they argued, the near-billion-dollar project had to improve the lives of the people who live and work along the route.
Both the Green Line and Blue Line extension projects are in the pipeline for federal New Starts funding, with medium-high rankings in the federal funding formula. But the Trump administration's budget for fiscal year 2018 calls for eliminating New Starts funding, placing those projects in doubt.

All Dartmoor Line trains call at Crediton, providing a new public transport link with Okehampton. Change at Crediton for the Tarka Line to Barnstaple and North Devon. Rail users in Crediton also benefit from more trains into Exeter.
Railway lines out to these towns were cut back in the 1960s as a result of the Beeching Report. The route to Tavistock and Plymouth closed in 1968. Services continued between Exeter and Okehampton for a few years but were later withdrawn in 1972.
The popularity of the Summer Sunday trains coupled with the Forum's evidence gathering, data modelling, engagement with the rail franchising process and special trains to London, Stratford-upon-Avon and Weymouth all played a critical role in making the return of daily passenger services a reality.
Following the confirmation of government funding for the reopening of the line in March 2021, work got underway to upgrade the track between Okehampton and the former Coleford Junction, where the Dartmoor Line joins the existing line to Exeter.
Since closure to regular passenger trains in 1972 and freight trains in 2008, the condition of the track had deteriorated and upgrade work was required before the line could safely open to daily passenger trains once again. You can see photos and videos of this work in our News section.
Returning regular, daily services to this line has been a long-held ambition of GWR, Network Rail, Devon County Council and the Devon & Cornwall Rail Partnership for a number of years and this is great news for customers and for the local economy.
The Dartmoor Line will help extend the reach and social and economic benefits of the railway, further supporting the communities it serves. Exeter is an employment hub for people in the Okehampton area and although it is linked to Exeter by the A30, traffic levels on routes into the city can be extremely congested at peak-times. With trains taking just 40 minutes (approximate journey time) to travel from Okehampton into the heart of Exeter, the reopening of the railway will encourage commuters to leave their car at home, reducing congestion and promoting more sustainable journeys.
The reopening of the line will not just benefit Okehampton. Towns such as Bude, Hatherleigh, Holsworthy and Launceston will be brought much closer to the rail network, unlocking these areas to train travel and paving the way for greener journeys to and from the region.
Dartmoor Line trains is operated using Class 150, 158 and Turbo units. Most trains operate in 2-car formations, offering up to 130 seats per service and are fully compliant with the latest modern accessibility standards.
All Dartmoor Line services stop at Crediton. Not only does this provide a regular service to Okehampton but it also increases the frequency of trains between Crediton and Exeter (2 trains an hour from May 2022 onwards).
