    I cannot see 'day rover' mentioned, but there are many options:

    Thanks, I know the railway did introduce them a few years ago, I think they were £25. Unfourtunately the current website doesn't give much away about the railway. Would be good if they had the full listing of ticket prices, such as those to/from the intermediate stations. Will give them a ring tomorrow.

    Have you got one this year? That's not a bad price at all considering it's £18.25 now for a Paignton-Dartmouth return (I believe the ferry isn't included in the rover?).

    I see a certain maroon S160 has been moving under her own steam on the NYM. Couple of videos on YouTube and good updates on Facebook. She looks great and I cant wait for the engine to arrive down in torbay.

    The boys and girls on the East Somerset are starting to put Goliath back together, again great work being done by the team there. Brilliant updates on their website as well as the pages on here.

    I'm sorry but you are wrong its not harsh at all,
    Dartmouth have had it less then a year and already have plans to overhaul it in the near future,

    Not have it sat on the seafront with a someday one day attitude.
