Usually travelling from Cornwall to the Midlands will require three changes, and take 7 hours. However this Sunday there will be engineering works and there is only one service out of here. Which according to the website would be:
|Station||Arr||Dep||Travel by||Service Provider|
|ST IVES||13:40||Train||FIRST GREAT WESTERN|
|ST ERTH||13:55||14:25||Train||FIRST GREAT WESTERN|
|TRURO||14:57||15:03||Bus||FIRST GREAT WESTERN|
|PAR||15:48||15:57||Train||FIRST GREAT WESTERN|
|[MIDLANDS]||23:42||00:15||Train||EAST MIDLANDS TRAINS|
Seven changes, 11 hours, and three buses. On a train ticket. I am wondering if for the sheer hell of it I should do it.
When it comes to planning your life the moral of the story is do not rely on public transport. Visiting these shores plan ahead, and beware when using the trains especially at the weekend.
