But honestly with the restricted spray over the trains and the improved design seawall that will send waves back out to sea, I think the excitement will be ruined and therefore I'm against the project 😡😆
Thanks also to Ken Mumford for forwarding it.
You may recall that Eric has entertained our members with his informative and amusing talks, therefore, I thought you may be interested in a book written by Eric Rabjohns which has been published this week. The book is titled The Redruth & Chasewater Railway: A Pictorial Excursion, Upalong and Downalong and takes us on a journey along the course of this mineral railway, using the Eric’s collection of old and current photographs with the unique addition of his own watercolours. There are also track plans and pictures of what survives. The railway served the great copper mines of Gwennap, as well as Wheal Buller and the Basset Mines, horse-drawn from 1827 and with steam locomotives from 1854. It closed in 1915. The book includes accounts from people who had worked on the railway.
Copies are priced at £10.00 each and are available from Eric on 01209 821488.
