Dawlish Station, 29th March 2014
With a projected re-opening date of 4th April 2014 a massive amount of work was still going on at Dawlish on Saturday 29th March 2014. This is the view looking over the station area towards Dawlish Warren with a benign looking sea belying the tremendous amount of damage that occurred during huge storms in early February when the seawall was breached and the railway destroyed for some distance. The whole area, including the seawall footpaths, was closed off until the rebuilding is complete - track having been relaid and by this time there had been some works trains along the line.
