Got mine in, down Sunday morning and back Monday for £49.80 from Crewe for two people, one with railcard. Not too bad I didn't think

I guess. Currently looking at £135 for 2 adults and a child return from Newton Abbot to Paddington for Giants/Rams and that's with a F&F railcard. £ per mile has got to be of of the highest anywhere in the country I would have thought.

Still, I guess it beats driving there.

That is definitely true, did it for Argyle last season, never again, train all the way.

But we need the second line via Tavistock back.

That would only make it worse for me. Less trains coming through Newton Abbot.

I wouldn't have thought so, keep the current flow from Plymouth to Paddington and have the reinstated line run to Waterloo like they did pre-beeching.

Nice idea but I reckon that if they ever did do it, one of them would be a "branch line" with those horrible little bus-type trains running between Plymouth and Exeter where you would need to change for onward travel. Never happen anyway, nobody wants to spend money on the South West. I'm not sure the rest of the country knows it exists outside of July & August! Best chance we would have had would have been via a European grant for Regional Development and, somehow, I think we may have blown that one!

Looking this morning and if you want to do a game in a day you can get the 08:40 from Plymouth on 2nd October and the 19:57 from Paddington for £20.50 each way without a railcard

I'm travelling from Kent and it's going to set me back about £35. Only about 50 miles from Wembley. Rip off....
