Hi Folks.


Hope this is the correct place to post this.... 


I have planned and booked time off for a week's train travel around Cornwall and Devon, the basic (fluid) itenerary is as follows:



Sat 13/06
Inverurie to Penzance 07:43 - 21:46
Sun 14/06
Penzance to St Ives
St Ives to Falmouth
Mon 15/06
Falmouth to Newquay
Newquay to Gunnislake
Tues 16/06
Gunnislake to Looe
Looe to Totnes
Wed 17/06
Totnes to Buckfastleigh  - Steam Railway
Buckfastleigh to Totnes  - Steam Railway
Totnes to Paignton
Paignton to Barnstaple
Thur 18/06
Barnstaple to Exmouth
Exmouth to Taunton
Taunton to Minehead  - Steam Railway
Minehead to Taunton - Steam Railway
Fri 19/06
Taunton to Inverurie 10:51 - 21:19
Paington steam railway is omitted as I've already travelled on it and if I miss it out it gives time to travel on the Exemouth branch.
The out and back times are based on winter timetable, but it is a rough guide. Anyone any thoughts on interesting railway related places to visit along the lines? I'd like to catch and photograph some clay trains, and I will consult RealTimeTrains when I'm there, but I'm guessing best places to catch them would be Par or Liskeard?
All thoughts and advice greatly appreciated......
Many thanks

My first thoughts.......


Yes, this is the right place to post this :)


Par or Lostwithiel for seing clay trains..


Without having checked the timetables, Id swap the Newquay_gunnislake for a trip to Looe that day and go to Gunni the next one and then on to Totnes....

Thank you sir, why would you modify the schedule in that way?

I would say that your Thursday is tight. Remember that you will need to get a bus from the station at Taunton to the WSR. This is several miles and will take some time.
