These photos would be impossible today even if there were were trains, as this view point has been completely ruined by the building of the A30 dual carriageway. The A30 now runs parallel with the viaduct probably about 50 yards between each other. There was a lot of controversy at the time as the road was to built on the National park, but it went ahead anyway.
The first shot is from the hill opposite the viaduct, the return working if stood in the same spot today you would be on the northbound carriageway of the A30.
Hope these are of interest - Paul.
I spent an hour at Camborne station in mid afternoon today to see how progress was being made with the Saturday timetable.
During my visit there were three Hitachi 9 car trains on Paddington services as well as the usual Castles and 158s. Nine car in the last few years have become regular in summer and one of them additional markings.
800321 running a 18 minutes late on the 1C74 9.02 from Paddington arrived at 14:10 and came back on the 1A94 14:45 from Penzance after a quick turnaround.
A couple of photos are shown with the new markings.
