This cabride was recorded on board 50022 on
16th April 1985. The train was the 09.25 Paddington - Penzance from Exeter
St Davids to Plymouth.
The re-signaling of Exeter was in full swing, so a Flagman was used to
control the traffic movements to depart the station.
The train was booked to depart Exeter at 12.22 and arrive at Plymouth
at 13.29. However, the 06.28 HST from Bradford was running late and it was
arranged for us to stop at Newton Abbott to make a connection with this
train. Our Plymouth arrival was at 13.50.

conversations between the driver, inspector and cameraman.
No 4/36 of the series of UK cab rides.
