Severe weather is predicted this evening near Dawlish and the line between Exeter and Newton Abbot will be closed from 18:30 until at least 19:30. Please travel early if possible, affected tickets for today will be valid on earlier trains or tomorrow 10 November.

Looking at Journeycheck, the main services to be affected will be the 1600 Penzance to Paddington and the 1603 Paddington to Penzance.

Now open again!

From GWR Twitter feed:

The severe weather predicted this evening between 18:30 and 19:30 will mean fewer lines are available to use but trains will run through Dawlish at a reduced speed. Please travel as early as possible, your ticket can be used earlier or tomorrow.

Code black (total shutdown) was supposed to be implemented but due to a change in forecast, workings have been revised.

The storm conditions are in advance of forecast, the winds should subside slightly and veer southerly from sou-easterly before high tide which is due at around 1900. The threat is therefore diminished.

IC86 has just passed through Dawlish on the seaward side but 2Z51 reversed at Dawlish Warren so the line might now be closed.

And now we have the situation of passengers complaining that not enough is being done and there's been no warning.  Undecided

Dawlish Cam showing quite a pounding, this'll be a first light inspection. There's no way the line will be open at start of service tomorrow.

....and if you're stuck in flood water trying to get to the station, that will be the railway's fault or can you claim for delay from the highways agency?
