I’m not sure how many of you will remember the photo’s we featured last year from the USA? The post’s were titled Dawlish in the USA and featured the photographs of Bob and Maryann who have their own page called BP and Riversong Railway Photography. The pictures featured the coastal lines which are almost a mirror image of our own stretch of line. Well, we are delighted to say that Bob and Maryann have been visiting the UK and chose to stay at the Blenheim in Dawlish. They have kindly agreed to share some of their photographs again and we hope you enjoy them.
