On the railways it's been fairly quiet too. Just the one charter down to Par on the 1st August with 47772 working through from Plymouth. Although not a steam fan as such, there is something magic about a steam loco at Par amid the semaphores with various hunts it has to perform, using some of the little used (these days) shunt signals.
Also included 66200 at Treviscoe at the end of July loading the JIA wagons.
On the 6th, 57603 worked the empty sleepers down to Long Rock following an incident the previous day. The train caught some lucky sun at Wheal Busy. I had been called to Gwinear Road so checked some of our footpath crossings. The one at Wheal Busy soon to be surrounded by industrial buildings on either side of the railway as the area is developed. Camborne now joined to Redruth, Redruth will soon spread eastwards to Scorrier and who knows when it will reach Blackwater and even Chacewater? Housing springing up beside the tracks at Treleigh along the railway too. The view from the train window now very different to the 1980s, little open green fields until you reach east of Scorrier as the A30 and railway part company at Apex bridge.
The following services were noted at Oath today (9th August) ;
Best regards, Bill
The diversions were caused by overrunning engineering work at Bristol TM.
