Leaving home on a Sunday morning, 8th April, 1985 to photograph steam on the main line in Devon, the first station on route St Erth had a set of Mark one coaches parked up in the up refuge siding as you came into St Erth. This siding was used many years previously to hold restaurant cars for the Summer Saturday express trains in the steam era.
Another unusual tail! It is true. Returning home from Truro on the 22nd September, 1990 the train came to a halt at Gwinear Road Station which closed on the 5th October, 1964. The guard alighted from the train onto the disused platform to look for the fault, following the guard I decided to open the door and alight for one photograph. After a few minutes we were again on the move. Possibly I was the last ever passenger to detrain at Gwinear Road?
