Devon Group Christmas Rail Trip

Fifteen L&B Trust members enjoyed a superb Christmas meal at the Union Rooms, Wetherspoons pub at Plymouth.

Starting from Barnstaple and using the Devon Day Ranger ticket (only £6.60) the group also picked up members at Umberleigh, Eggesford, and Exeter.

8. After Plymouth we returned on another Cross - Country HST to Exeter, whereby several of us changed trains to go up the ex LSWR line to Honiton and a chance for another drink at the Star Inn, Wetherspoons. Later the pub crawl resumed at Exeter (The Imperial) whilst we waited for the last train back to Barnstaple by 2215.
