Walk and Talk on 5th May 2018

The restoration of our train services is
cheap, crucial and feasible

 “What a day! The organisers did a fantastic job. However the commemoration was both a sad and an happy event. Sad in that so much magnificent railway structure was destroyed  in 1968 but happy in that it will be just a matter of time before it is reinstated. The Secretary of State, Chris Grayling has ordered that the initial  Okehampton to Exeter services be restored as soon as ‘reasonably possible’. The next to be restored has to be the Tavistock to Gunnislake line -  followed finally by the 21 miles stretch between Okehampton and Tavistock. This will complete, the ‘Northern Route’ between Exeter and Plymouth. Depending on the contactor the cost of the entire restoration could be as little as the cost of just two miles of the HS2.

As of 5th May 2018 over 100,000 people in West Devon and North Cornwall have not access to regular train services for 50 years. This  has held back the region, destroyed businesses and a left Plymouth with a single weather dependent route running along a beach in places!

The restoration of our train services is cheap, crucial and feasible. For more information go to www.prg.2day.uk or Peninsular Rail Group  on Facebook. Join the campaign for your sake and your children’s sake”
