As we are now allowed to venture outside once again I took advantage of Saturdays fine weather to capture this mornings traffic to and from Penzance, making it as far as Marazion, it was seriously good to get out and about with the Camera once again, certainly true that you can really miss something you take for granted in the normal World

St Ives Branch
I feel very mean because I haven't contributed anything for what seems a terribly long time. I hope this makes up for it to some extent.
Firstly, in response to a recent request I have dug out a couple of old working timetables and scanned the sections dealing with the St Ives Branch. The first one is as close as possible to the required date, covering the period 17th June to 8th September 1963 and was the last one when the Branch was fully signalled.
The other one I include for interest only and is the GWR equivalent for the period 7th October 1946 to 4th May 1947 (I wish I had been able to come across a copy of a pre-nationalisation summer one, but no luck). I apologise for the state of the front cover but when I managed to acquire it in, I think, 1957 it was already pretty dog-eared and the cover torn. At the time I thought I was doing a good job in repairing it with Sellotape but over the years the paper deteriorated to a buff colour and is very delicate. The Sellotape, instead has gone brown and brittle but at least I still have it and the interior is legible.
Many thanks Laurence - very nice to hear from you again.
N.B. If you turn to our St Ives branch section you will find that Laurence has contributed a large amount of valuable material.
