Build a wall call Trump!
Line needs to be kept away from the sea..becoming impossible, sea always wins. line needs to end at Dawlish Warren for Dawlish just local trains, .divert the mainline inland from Exminster-Newton. Jusr run a branch from Newton to serve Teignmouth.. offer line to someone wants to take it on as a tourist attracrtion to Dawlish. but it cant be reliable all year round service as today proves.
Well she has given Labour a chance to drum up a few votes by being away...she's not seen as being desperate.
I'm always in Dawlish and know how many people use the buses.
Either they are 'full' or 'empty' lol.. Clearly Dawlish does not want buses in the evening,..point taken.
Service 2 Exeter - Dawlish - Newton is a 'commercial' service and not supported by DCC (taxes). Stagecoach choose to run an hourly service in the evening into Dawlish until Midnight. last arrives at 0021. In the days of Nationalised NBC in the 70s the services would certainly be discontinued. As the lack of passenger use/need has been highlighted, maybe Stagecoach will consider withdrawal of ...
£2.70 return to Exeter with a rail card. After 7pm you can get a £2.80 ticket on the bus unlimited travel anywhere on Stagecoach.
Even with the most modern up to date trains you will never zap through Dawlish with sharp bends at speeds of 125mph!!!!! ....If they could, I wouldnt fancy it with waves crashing on the trains! So you cant compare with other parts of the country.. First Great Western need to get the trains like Southern have ..they quietly slide out the stations..
I've never said the line should not be there .. I used the train today ..wonder how many on here did? It's not rocket science, if sea levels are getting higher as we are told and if flood happens all over again there has to be an alternative line (look up what that means lol). I would not have a proiblem with Dawlish Parkway the other side of town. Most want the railway not to use it but ...
Speed restrictions and delays again..it's about time Government got on with an alternative line. I noticed on BBC SW Polotics show last Sunday ..even UKIP said there needs to be an alternative. It's no different to two routes to Scorland west coast or east. So why not two options to Cornwall? Plymouth Labour MP said they have no opinion lol.
