A promise was kept (against all odds) to repair the near-catastrophic damage and have trains back on the track in time for the Easter holidays. So it was great to take this scenic journey yesterday and see all the repairs in place! Here’s another picture, this time showing the renewed sea wall on the Exeter side of Dawlish Station:
