Date Description Type Speaker
13-Mar-20 The Devon Belle Presentation Ken Mumford
The Devon Belle (an all-Pullman S.R. train) ran from June 1947 to September 1954 between London Waterloo, Ilfracombe and Plymouth. Various dates, times plus ideas were tried through the years to make it a success but in the end it died a natural death. Was it too soon after WW2?
