Got sight of the publicity leaflet for the March Redruth and environs work today. Seems that for the four days of the work First Kernow buses will accept rail tickets west of Truro on any route whether directly related to the rail network or not. So in effect free travel on FK to any rail station or destination providing a train ticket covering the approximate routing for the ticket is held. So a Journey, on buses, say to Sennen from Chacewater would be covered throughout by a Truro - Penzance Rail Ticket.

Wouldn't it be cheaper to simply buy the equivalent bus ticket

Not sure off peak rail times, but peak time the £12 first day bus ticket would definitely be cheapest

You obviously haven't seen First Kernow's fares. Most rail journeys are significantly cheaper than their bus equivalent.

I was going to book up a trip from Perranwell to Salisbury on 21st or 28th April. GWR site says line closed for signalling work. But when I go on the GWR site to book ticket there is no mention of a bus on travel details.  Is this work still on? If so I will re arrange to the Friday. All very confusing.

Lack of details might be something to do with this.... http://www.firstgreatwestern.info/coffeeshop/index.php?topic=19385.0

Looks like phase 1 was commissioned as planned with new TD berths UM59 and DM60 (presumably for automatics UM259 and DM260) appearing in the Plymouth TD feed.
