Kind regards, Craig Munday
Many thanks to you Craig. I cannot say how grateful we are to dedicated railwaymen such as yourself who take remarkable pictures in a location we just couldn't reach.
The ‘hoods’ were awaiting collection on the siding which was removed post closure and is now the site of the new platform.
The rather rudimentary parking brake mechanism is featured in the foreground and illustrates the simplicity of this type of rolling stock.
On arrival at Fowey, emptying the clay required only to turn the complete wagon upside down.
With the arrival of the CDA, things became much more complicated, so called modernisation spelling the end of the Wenford operation and a number of other clay sidings.
Best wishes Andrew Many thanks to you.
