Title: May 1969 timetable
Post by: RichardB on April 24, 2019, 11:04:02 pm
Could anyone scan and send me the Exeter - Plymouth and Plymouth - Penzance sections of the May 69 WR timetable please?  I'm looking to compare then with now in the run up to this year's two timetable changes.

Thanks in advance.

Richard,
If it helps, the 1965 one is online here: http://timetableworld.com/book_viewer.php?id=12&section_id=15

I will also have a look in my ‘deep store’ (aka the loft) later as I do have some old TT but not sure of the dates.

Paul

I have a copy of the BR(WR) Working Timetable for 1971 covering Taunton to Plymouth if all else fails.

Thanks Paul and Phil.  Hope your "Deep Store" might have the 69 one, Paul.

Hi Richard.  I might have the 1969 one in my archive (everybody on here knows where that is  ::)).  I'll have a search.

Thanks for all the replies and particularly thanks to John R who has messaged me to say he has one and will lend it to me which is very kind.  Evidently the only table covering Exeter - Plymouth and Plymouth - Penzance is the Paddington - Penzance one, all 58 pages of it so a bit much for scanning!

That’s good that JohnR has come up with the goods (see what I did there?) as my copies are 1952 & 1965.
