Until the end of August, any child (5-15) travels free if accompanied by a 'teddy bear' and a fare paying adult (2 children per adult).  Courtesy of DCRP» (Devon and Cornwall Rail Partnership - about) and GWR (Great Western Railway) (thanks Richardb).
I borrowed two children to test run it today (actually my grandchildren, before anyone asks), and I can confirm it works with an onboard purchase from the TM(resolve) (I boarded at St Budeaux).  I was slightly hoping to be issued a ticket with 'teddy bear' shown as the pax, however the actuality is that no ticket is issued for the youngsters. The trains both ways were well loaded with families. Full marks for the returning TM who entered into the spirit of things for the children - bought back memories of the GWRSA» (Great Western Railway Staff Association - website) Gunni Branch Santa Specials in the 1980s.

Thanks Pb_devon.  Just to say, the offer only applies for day trips from Plymouth and the suburban stations.

Sorry no "Teddy Bear" ticket - keeping it simple!  Great to hear the trains were well loaded with families in both directions. 

Thanks especially to GWR (Great Western Railway) for agreeing to this great offer.
