In the 20 years I have been visiting Dawlish, I have only encountered major travel issues twice.  Both of these were as a direct result of rolling stock issues and not infrastucture.   The line as it stands is in need of investment, however, until the issues surrounding the routing of the line are resolved, none of the investment will materialise. One a separate note.   The viaduct at ...

Saw this wonderful article on BBC website. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-31113368 Loved the independent article - very very tongue in cheek

@Carer I had just got in from work when I saw this.   Very impressive item.   Pity that Larry Lamb had not visited Dawlish Museum to see his outfit and the pipes.   The Germans actually thought he was mad when he landed with Lord Lovat.   Let's home it got some people interested and they come to visit

@Andylufc Andy, we travel to Dawlish every year to spend our summer holidays.   The Bus fare between Dawlish and Teignmouth is extremely high for the length of journey.  The train fare is £2.40 single or a return for £2.70 (off peak fares)  I would suggest as stephen15 has that you visit the First great Western website (www.firstgreatwestern.co.uk) to see if they do a weekly travel ticket. ...

Missed this episode, I have to admit I have enjoyed his travels through devon and was looking forward to this one.  Will catch up with it on iPlayer hopefully.   the closing credits for this series include footage of the steam train at the warren and past the coastguard cottages.

@Peter Unfortunately it is unlikely that any assistance from First Great Western would be forthcoming.   They are coming to the end of their Franchise and have already intimated that they do not intend to rebid.     A recent TV programme indicated that the higher volumes of people who are now commuting to work by train has placed a significant load on rolling stock which is already in need ...
