This is the image of a 44 at Shaugh Bridge Halt sent in by Brian Willis with a query as to the function of the buiding seen to the left. Trevor Tremethick has written in with the following likely answer.Reference the above, Shaugh Bridge Platform, much used by day trippers and ramblers, was at one time a terminal point for auto services from Plymouth (see Oakwood Press 'The Launceston Branch' by G H Anthony). I have read somewhere (but cannot put my hand on the reference) that, in earlier years, there was a refreshment room at Shaugh Bridge. Whether this is the building that appears in the photo I cannot say - perhaps this is a possible explanation. Trevor Many thanks Trevor, unless we hear otherwise we'll assume this answers the question. many thanks.
