|Dawlish as I know and love it - 67008 hauls a 12 car train westbound|
|The spectacular side of Dawlish as a Cross Country Voyager gets a soaking.|
But today it proved a storm too many as the ground underneath the line at Dawlish was totally washed away and the line is now basically suspended in mid air. Lord knows how long it will take to repair but I'll be surprised if it's by summer. This has effectively cut off West Devon and Cornwall and the A30 is going to be a well worn road for the next few months. A sad day and I hope the line can be rebuilt to resemble its former glory.
|The line, path and some of the road just gone., washed away by a storm so powerful it beggars belief|
