GWR asked Dave to shoot a film about the ‘Night Riviera’ – their revamped sleeper service from Paddington to Penzance – so he did the journey…

Leaving Paddington at 23.45pm, it takes approximately eight hours, and makes 15 station stops – including Exeter, Plymouth and Truro.

The sleeper service was temporarily suspended thanks to Covid restrictions, but cabins are available from 24 August 2020. More information (and a version of the film in GWR use), see
