That first round trip M-F seems very early - does it get much custom?

My understanding is that it carries passengers to work in the Dockyard.  I recall it being under threat in the 2006 timetable changes which lead to the creation of this forum, but was one of the ones bought back.

Correct Grahame, Dockyard start time is 0730, schools 0830 (ish), then the leisure/shoppers after 0900. Challenge is to serve all three flows on the single line!
Personally I?m not missing the 0730 start since retiring!
