Ah, that’s where my misunderstanding stemmed from.No, it isn’t. AIUI the track had to be doubled to allow the necessary train frequency in the area, but a second platform wasn’t ever on the agenda.
(A number of posts in an earlier thread about Corby in these forums reckoned it was happening when the project first surfaced around 2014, but it seems to me it was always in doubt.)
Exmouth had (as far as I remember) 4 platforms when I first visited, but only one was in use. I've got some 'analogue' photos somewhere...Exmouth reportedly had a population of 34,432 in 2011 and has one platform.
Barnstaple was 24,033 (in 2011) but serves as a railhead for a larger area.
The 4 platform station with the overgrown trackbed existed well past the Beeching era.Exmouth had 4 platforms before Beeching shut the railway beyond it to Budleigh Salterton, Littleham and Sidmouth but nowadays has only 1
I think that would be ruled out in the same way that Stourbridge Town would be ruled out. You have Wrexham General in the same town in the same way that Stourbridge Junction is in the same town as Stourbridge Town Station and in both cases it is just a short train ride between themWould Wrexham Central count?
