During the days of British Rail it was possible to purchase a Rail Rover type ticket for unlimited travel over certain areas or regions, over a single day, or for a longer period. While such tickets are still available, they do not emulate those early tickets and the romantic idea of cheap rail travel and adventures over the national rail network. Of course, these tickets were, and still are, popular for journeys into and within the West Country, because of the destinations and resorts within the area, but unlike in the early days of British Rail, many of the locations within this beautiful region are no longer connected to the national rail network. Here, Stephen Heginbotham uses the evocative photographs of his friends David Letcher, Nigel Rowe and Graham Pearse to take you back to an era when carefree excursions to Devon and Cornwall were commonplace, and train travel was more relaxed and an adventure, yet more civilised, with a stunning location at the end of the line.
