The broken rail line at Dawlish has reopened this morning after being closed for two months.
The first passenger train passed through Dawlish Station just before 6am, travelling from Exeter to Paignton.
The tracks were badly damaged by the storms back in February.
Rail users hailed the reopening of the track at Dawlish in Devon as "absolutely fantastic" ahead of the Easter holidays
