According to my Riviera Line timetable, Cross Country trains presently stop at Dawlish at the following times: Travelling towards Exeter Mon-Fri: 0726; 1031; 1433; Sat: 0731; 1009; 1035; 1309; 1424; 1710; Sun: 1120; Travelling towards Plymouth Mon-Fri: 1237; 1824 Sat: 1059; 1239; 1504; 1636; Sun: 1725; 2142

This is all tied in with the state pension age and, more to the point, the state pension age for women. I know I've another thread going on about the rising state pension age for women (see http://www.dawlish.com/thread/details/45135 ) but I thought to start a separate thread about the bus pass issue because of what I overheard in a Dawlish shop the other day.
