Dear Mr Heron, 
 
Release of Information 
 
Thank you for your communication of 15 May 2012 in which you request 
information on access and ownership of the Lympstone Commando Railway 
Station. Your enquiry is considered to be a request under the Freedom of 
Information Act 2000. 
 
I can confirm that the railway station is not owned by the Ministry of Defence 
so the Department cannot limit access to it from the general public. However, 
anyone taking photographs from the platform should be aware that this would 
attract interest from the security staff at Commando Training Centre RM 
(CTCRM) Lympstone, particularly if photographs of the camp are taken. To 
avoid any such concerns, individuals wishing to take photographs of trains, 
etc, should contact the CTCRM Guard Room and inform them of their 
intentions beforehand. Contact details for CTCRM Lympstone are as follows: 
 
Royal Marines Commando Training Centre, 
Exmouth Road 
Lympstone 
Exmouth 
Devon EX8 5AR 
Tel: 01392 414038 
 
On the matter of ownership of the station and the policy governing the 
provision of the request stop at CTCRM Lympstone, I can only suggest you 
approach the appropriate regional rail network provider who may be able to 
advise you further.    
 
If you are not satisfied with this response or you wish to complain about any 
aspect of the handling of your request, then you should contact me in the first 
instance. If informal resolution is not possible and you are still dissatisfied 
then you may apply for an independent internal review by contacting the Head 

of Corporate Information, 2nd Floor, MOD Main Building, Whitehall, SW1A 
2HB (e-mail [email address]). Please note that any request for an 
internal review must be made within 40 working days of the date on which the 
attempt to reach informal resolution has come to an end. 
 
If you remain dissatisfied following an internal review, you may take your 
complaint to the Information Commissioner under the provisions of Section 50 
of the Freedom of Information Act. Please note that the Information 
Commissioner will not investigate your case until the MOD internal review 
process has been completed. Further details of the role and powers of the 
Information Commissioner can be found on the Commissioner's website,

Yours sincerely
