That coastal train must go through Three Fridges so I'd say you'll be ok if you can get there mate.

Being brought up in the countryside we had no motorways...but we used to rag round country lanes in our metros and fiestas!!

Needless to say most cornish (male) drivers drive too fast round country lanes and cos we expect them to be deserted and we know the short cuts like the back of our hands....now with the age of GPS we all think we're rally drivers or leaders on Gran Tourismo...At the end the cars still look like shrek with most of the hedge attached to the wing mirrors!!

That is so true, coming from devon it was much the same thing, and didnt you just hate it in summertime when around the corner you nearly crashed into a bloody grockle.
