Well. Summer 2023 beckons - where has the year gone? March and April were soggy to say the least. It seems we missed Spring and all of a sudden the trees are glowing with their new coat of leaves, hedgerows bedecked with flowers and the luscious late evenings most welcome.
Been quiet on the railway scene of late, but the longest days always provide some novelty shots only available in those hours.
10th saw a day or two down west and a London bound Class 802 hurried past Roskear box, a looming black sky further west.
The following day, I'm back in the Ranger as 43158 departs the Duchy for the following time with a Cardiff bound train see at Wheal Bois crossing.
66104 is seen at St Blazey putting the CDAs to bed on Fri 12th, poinantly the only service running on that day.
Finally for now - with the sun dropping leaving superb light to illuminate the GWR dark green that haunts us photographers, 43009 and 170 work 2C79 into St Erth passing under the by-pass bridge at Hayle. The area recently expertly cleared by Ground Control
By the way - sections of the by-pass bridge which were brought down by train, hauled by a class 50 in the early 80s, anyone else remember this?
Best wishes for now, Craig
lets hope the 'Golden Months' continue.
Many Thanks to Guy Vincent

However, I thought that the attached are unusual at that station.
 An IET between containers [of a 6C03 - Northolt Sidings to Severnside Sita] train hauled by 66183. Due Swindon 1319, passed 12.56.
 A hand-written notice as one gets to the top of the stairs leading to platform 4 waiting area.
 A crow takes a walk along the track leadng to platform 4!
