There has been no timetable before Tuesday 25th July unless it slipped by without announcing itself. But now, at last there is an on-line version. But we are still not privileged to have any details for Saturday or Sunday travel.
"Pops" was at Axminster Station yesterday to collect a grandson who is staying for a few days.
And there is a poster ...
Just over a week to go ...
