Roger Winnen has a further report on the oil train of 2nd August. The fuel train that morning came into the refuelling road, which normally doesn't happen. The engine uncoupled pulled forward to the washplant then reversed twice to attach to the empty tanks in the normal location. From there it pulled away after 09.10 for its journey back to St Blazey leaving the full tanks in the fueling road which was unusual. The Class 08 644 shunter was inside the shed, rather strange I thought for a Friday morning! However returning home via the beach and the wooden overbridge at Ponsandane one could see the Class 57 from the sleeper attaching to the tanks to move them to the normal siding adjacent to the large fuel oil holding tanks.
