Years ago, I marvelled at the mainline that ran from Easter to Plymouth alongside the Exe estuary through Dawlish and Teignmouth through cuttings and tunnels of red rock.

This photograph was taken on the sea wall that carries the line below the place we’re staying at Holcombe near Teignmouth. We’re going to Plymouth by train on Friday, and I want to go from Dawlish so I can enjoy Brunel’s line as it runs by the river and the sea before turning inland to Newton Abbot and Totnes before meeting the coast again at Plymouth.
