The bigger issue there is the upgrading and maintainance of Meldon Viaduct.The Southern Railway main line to P**mouth used to pass through Okehampton and Tavistock. There are (or were) plans to rebuild the Bere Alston - Tavistock section, which would leave only Okehampton - Tavistock. Not that far. That part of the line runs very close to Dartmoor, though, and was cut off by snow in the winter of 1963!
Exactly and when I hear Cameron describing the rail line to Cornwall as being one of the most beautiful and scenic routes in the country I just think, ***** that!As a Bristolian I'd have thought that you'd know that.
Only reason to use trains IMO is because you're too drunk to drive.
