    Ooh Parsons Tunnel again. The same area where a developer wanted to develope the space on the cliff right above the unstable red rock. I hope the two aren't connected? Not the best of days for it to happen though unfortunately with the "grand opening" of the sea wall path again.

    Wouldn't help the majority who use that stretch of line, mind. DAL or bust, I reckon!

    It's been a difficult day for XC services; these problems down in Devon, coupled with the overhead wire problems up North have impacted NE - SW services fairly severely. The 15:23 Plymouth - Leeds being cancelled, and then it being reinstated from Bristol but later cancelled couldn't have come at a worst time!
