Title: SWR to reopen long-since closed MPD?
Post by: PhilWakely on January 13, 2020, 04:13:40 pm
No, not Yeovil Town!

An updated automated onboard announcement....
"The next station is Exeter Central. Change here for the city centre and Exmouth Junction"   :D

Not so long back the XC service on Summer Saturdays from Edinburgh to Newquay was advertised as calling at the following Cornish stations, Par, St Blazey (Closed in the 1920's), Goonbarrow Junction (NEVER a passenger station) and Newquay.

Being the little Demon I is, whilst at Derby I asked for a single ticket to Goonbarrow at the Ticket window, caused all sorts of confusion.  ;D ;D
