Railway Stations in Devon

Hi all - I’m not sure if this has been covered before so apologies if it has, I am after a list of frequencies for railway communications in Devon, also if they are on digital or alongside

Many thanks

Try the nationally allocated uhf railway frequencies, not specific to Devon but pretty much used allover the country, 453.55 and 453.9 are the main two and can be either analogue fm or DMR. The cab radios (which the drivers use to talk to signallers, ops rooms and other drivers etc) are GSM and secure and have been since about 15 years ago. They used to be in the clear on a vhf band III trunked system prior to that, and prior to that I think they were around 139mhz but that was back in the 1980s when I got my first scanner and Moses was still a lad.

I think your spellchecker must have changed "analogue" to "alongside"
