An unusual view of the branch platform and former yard at Liskeard saw a green 150/2 arrive from Looe. The train could be heard delightfully traversing the jointed track under the viaduct and taking the wide horse shoe bend up into the station. What a feat of engineering this line is! The train turning 180 degrees in less than a mile.
I covered Sunday at Par box and grabbed 1A97 Newquay to Paddington winding its way through the trackwork and passing the fine semaphores on a glorious evening after my relief arrived.
A wonderful morning at St Winnow saw the empty CDAs traverse the river around 7am just as the sun had burned off the stubborn mist along the valley. It can still be seen soaring into the atmosphere in the shots of 66165.
Best wishes, Craig.

I recommend watching on mute to eliminate the distracting music!
