Speed to the West
The Cornish Riviera Express, probably one of the most famous trains on the Great Western Railway, had its name derived from a competition in The Railway Magazine in 1904.
1,286 entries were received with a prize offered of 3 guineas. Known affectionately as The Limited, departure was 10.30am prompt from Paddington Station, London, taking around 4 hours to reach Plymouth, with coaches being slipped en route for Westbury, Exeter in Devon and Taunton in Somerset. The whole journey to Penzance, Cornwall was completed in 6 hours and 20 minutes.
The Riviera of Cornish Riviera can today be reached by train from London Paddington in about six hours and the seaviews from the train as it rushes along the coast right next to the sea wall by Dawlish Warren in south Devon is timeless.
