Sunday 28th January 1990
47530 crawls at it crosses from the up through line onto the by now very rarely used 2nd Loop line, with a train of empty ballast wagons.
Both traincrew keep a close eye on proceedings.
The area to the right used to be a rail served scrap yard that rarely saw any wagons by 1990.
Not really surprising the whole area has been radically cleaned in the years that followed....
Day one (13-12-2021).
Track relaying is taking place between Treleigh Bridge (A3047) and Drump road on the up line

Unfortunately I was unable to photograph one of the trains, it was just east of Wheal Bois crossing and I could only see the tail end. Report by Mick House
