High tide is 5m, at 21.30 the waves were peaking at 9m above that, a total of 14m above OS datum.

There is a monitoring buoy off West Bay, Dorset which shows waves of 3m with peak waves up to 6m from 21.00 yesterday to 10.00 today.
(http://www.channelcoast.org/data_management/real_time_data/charts/?chart=83)

Add to that the high spring tides of 5m at Dawlish, which are still predicted at 5m for Friday.

I would suggest somewhere on the Southern Coastway service.

I seem to recall, probably from Modern Railway’s Informed Sources’ that the maximum adhesion was just at the point of slipping and the WSP on the Class 59 was able to interact guickly enough to keep it near that point.

It seems the electric service operates as far as Swindon from today. BBC Wiltshire in attendance.

Copied from GWR Journey Check just now

Due to damage to the overhead electric wires earlier today between Cheltenham Spa and Swindon fewer trains are able to run.
