A combination of a high tide and strong winds will make it unsafe for trains to travel along the sea wall at Dawlish today from 9:30 until 11am.

They should try out the new iep class 802 and see if that can stand up to a good dousing in salt water.
Leatash, they have and it does.
Well, a Cross-Country train came through fine yesterday just before 11. And the sea didn't look particularly rough.
