Not long now until we have the party that will give everyone just what they ask..

Plymouth mob as you call them, not to forget, Torbay and Cornwall. together they help keep the line in place. Dawlish benefits from those people coming to the town, unless of course you don't want them!

This is worth watching if you missed the latest episode 'The Railway' the day the line reopened. http://www.channel5.com/shows/the-railway-first-great-western/episodes/network-renewed @ Howard re doiuble deck trains Found this series by Channel 4 in 1984 ...with a mention of double deck trains, how they were built in late 40s but did not last.
