Thoughts with all affected;


Cancellations to services between Plymouth and Totnes


Due to a person being hit by a train between Plymouth and Totnes the line is blocked.
Train services running through these stations may be cancelled, delayed by up to 60 minutes or revised. Disruption is expected until 12:00 30/09.

08:05 Penzance to London Paddington due 14:06 was terminated at Plymouth.
It will no longer call at Totnes, Newton Abbot, Exeter St Davids, Tiverton Parkway, Taunton, Castle Cary, Westbury, Pewsey, Newbury, Reading and London Paddington.
This is due to a person being hit by a train.

Odd, as OTT showing it still static between Laira and Tavvy junctions, showing as passed Lipson Jn 10h12, 1 min early. 
Wonder if this is the one involved.
Thoughts to all involved of course.
Dreadful.

1A80 now showing returning to Plymouth, shortly to arrive at platform 5.  Guess a relief driver has been found from somewhere on a Sunday.
Passengers transferring to 1A81? somewhat late in departing for Paddington.
