Also included is a crystal shot of Golant with the clay train Carne Point bound. The cloud ever creeping into the image from the distance.
On a peaceful night of 10th, Two class 66s rest on the fuelling road at St Blazey. 66018 the designated CDA local trip loco, and 66076 which worked the JIA trips to Par Harbour & Treviscoe, returning on 11th back East. What can't be appreciated is the icy wind howling under 5 arches bridge, unusually from the South Coast direction.
All the best for now
My name is Mark and today we discovered this long piece of metal that we believe may be a piece of the old Minions railway line from Minions to Looe?
We live on a farm in an area called Highwood, in-between liskeard and St Cleer and the old railway line runs very close by.
After a bit of 'googling' your website popped up and wondered if you may be interested. Please find attached some photos.
I had a minor reaction but nothing serious, so decided today to try and resume my exercise routine and being local to our house, walked to Wadebridge along the Camel Trail which conforms to the latest Covid 19 advice.
I normally cycle but felt slightly unsteady, so decided walking was safest. The trail is very popular at the moment but is easy to maintain social distancing.
On reaching the farm occupation overbridge at Guineaport I decided that it was time to turn around when something caught my eye in the undergrowth. On closer inspection and to my delight I had stumbled on the base to Latice work signals 38/36 situated just before the overbridge facing in the Bodmin direction and just east of the site of Wadebridge East Signal Box. I must have passed this point many times on my bicycle but had never stopped.
Unfortunately finds like this are extremely rare these days given that the efficient scrap men removed the signal in approx 1968/69 and it appears to be the only remaining evidence of a once extensive signalling system at Wadebridge.
I have attached two photographs taken today one close up and another to illustrate how well camouflaged it was.
It just goes to prove that keeping your eyes open can produce some wonderful surprises!
Best wishes Andrew and Diane.
