There are no STP (short term planning) trains between NTA and PGN showing on data feeds for those dates, except some changes to CrossCountry services for engineering work elsewhere.

One to ask GWR directly if they're putting on additional trains. May just be lengthening existing services.

2Z30 came in  9 car 800314 (about 300 passengers). After 10minutes reversed empty as 5Z31 back to Exeter.


The service trains 2T10 came in left as 2Z21 and subsequent locals came in as T and left as Z

5Z31 must be coming back as 2Z31 Exeter 11.54 Paignton 12.43.

All the time I had. Try to get back later.

At Paignton they have open a temporary Exit/Entry from the rear of platform 2 making the passengers detour through the car park which is closed as is the station toilets.
