Used Paignton to travel to Dawlish. Nice old station, which appears to be having done refurb done. Didn't realise it was the end of the line for the majority of services that use it.

A large airy and clean station with good facilities. Staff are on duty most of the day and are helpful in assisting with travel arrangements and any queries. The toilets have been modernised. A cafe is available for refreshments. Plenty of taxi's if you need one.

Torquay's station has a lot of charm and remains mainly unchanged from that bygone era,Two tracks separate the two platforms,One incoming and one outgoing.It's easy to imagine how many famous people may have used this station to get to Torquay at the turn of the century.

I spent 2 days in Torquay and travelled from and to Paddingdon, found the station a bit of a let down for the town. Whatever you do, don't use the toilets or have a hot drink from the cafe !!!

This station is fine as things go being clean, having toilets and places to sit however every time I have been the cafe has been closed which is frustrating as I would love to be able to buy a coffee and / or sandwich before travelling.
