The Tarka Rail Association (at the time the North Devon Rail Users Group) is believed to be the first group of its type in the country to have produced a study of the environmental impact of the use of various modes of transport for journeys from its area.

The report was commissioned by the group from the Envision partnership, a well known team of environmental consultants in the South West.


Comparisons were made for a range of journeys of varying length, utilising road , rail, and even air travel, and even provided an analysis  of various modes of freight  transport.
