Pictures of this train other than at stations if possible.
I don't know if they are still there but the inside of the waiting shed on the disused island platform at Bere Alston was a time capsule. Kept locked from around 1970. **I saw inside it in the 90's: Southern green and yellow paint -Fireplace- stove, Advertising posters for summer season holiday travel in '1969 etc.
Western Region had a lot to answer for in destroying the 'Withered Arm' Yes, bit of it were uneconomic but bits of it weren't- looking at the last season of holiday traffic receipts at Ilfracombe under Southern Region control compared to the first season under Weston Region: The trains re-timetabled not to connect with anything or hour long waits for Barnstable connections at remote stations like Yeoford. Death by a thousand cuts and wilful neglect??
** Does anybody know what's in there these days, is it in safe keeping or destroyed? Many thanks for writing in.
