So what does a cash-strapped Cornwall Council do? It has probably spent all its "subsidy" money and any delving into the "reserves" piggy bank will produce only small change. So how do the relatively few customers get between Launceston, Camelford and Wadebridge.
Which leaves a smaller gap between Launceston and Camelford.
Cornwall's low cost plan involves tendering (presumably?) a service 410 from its chummy "partner", Travel Cornwall. The County's web site explains:
... would continue to campaign for a replacement for the 510 services between Wadebridge, Camelford, Davidstow, Hallworthy, Pipers Pool, Tregadillett and Launceston.
"We haven't heard yet which services will replace the 510 between Launceston, Camelford and Wadebridge," he said. "I know Cornwall Council is looking at all the options to make sure that residents who don't have access to a car in Tregadillett, Pipers Pool, Hallworthy, Davidstow and other communities along the route aren't left stranded."
We also need to remember that WG haven't told their on-line public that they are withdrawing the 510 and their website was still unavailable today.
Never mind. This blog was prepared on Sunday afternoon when a little man in van from Cornwall council was nipping along the route sticking 410 timetables in the frames and removing 510 publicity, continuing with the latter project all the way to Exeter. No, sorry, all the way to Launceston; thereafter it's the lads from Devon who will have been out and about.
That will have happened, won't it?
** STOP PRESS! No links to new timetables by the time the fbb blog office closed at 2200 yesterday.
