15:00 Object of the day was to have a meal in the dining car of the 12:06 from Paddington. This was achieved by Exeter but we decided to continue to Newton Abbot to enjoy the view across the sea at Dawlish. Had forty minutes at Newton Abbot before the train back to London walked outside the station and found a brewpub. Bonus.
