Looks like Meledor Mill (Retew branch) to me.
Lucky Craig Munday
Following a spell on holiday, I'm back in the seat once more. I was fortunate enough to be invited onto the Officer's Special on 7th September. Loram organized the visit of 37418 and Caroline the inspection saloon to visit branchlines in Devon & Cornwall.
A number of guests from Networkrail and other railway industry partners sampled the journey west behind the spick and span class 37 in fine fettle. I joined at Plymouth for the trip down to carne Point and some pictures of the trip are included.
The saloon itself is remarkable, so much included in a small carriage. At either end there ia a driving position, and three large windows ideal for looking out on the line ahead. Two bays of seating areas are directly behind. There is a narrow corridor linking these area with a kitchen area and separate toilet too. The guests were well refreshed with plentiful tea and coffee and snacks along the way.
Also included are a couple of trains taken at Polbathic near St Germans with the first tinges of Autumn in the air. A serious accident on the A30 westbound near Menheniot resulted in the road being shut for a long period.
Best wishes, Craig Munday.
Our sympathies to Mrs Palmer who was also involved in CRS matters for a number of years.
I am very sorry to hear of Rick’s passing.
In the early days when I started as Magazine Editor, Rick was very helpful in putting the magazine together, and we used to run off copies on the old Roneo machine in his office. I seem to recall that a fair bit of the dreaded pink correction fluid was used!
My condolences to Mrs Palmer.
With kind regards, Trevor Tremethick
