I don’t have the solution but as nobody has come forward I’m working on it. I don’t have the plans for Seaton Junction after the 1967 singling. Perhaps Brian could assist? One thought is that as the singling placed the through line on the Down and the Up lines were retained including the loop siding – or is that far too simple? It would also be interesting to see the 2nd realignment of the sidings in 1972 – was that partly a reason for ending the milk traffic?
Query by Micheal Manning
I have just spoken to Amyas about this tour of 1971.
He advised me to get in touch with either Bryan Murrish or Dave Letcher about this.
Could you pass this note to either for me please
The GWS Bodmin members met at Bodmin Road on the 29th June 1971.
Waiting was 08 D3526 a box van 23 (maybe 24) empty clay wagons and two Brake Vans
for a trip to General, Boscarne Junction and Wenford Bridge.
Did they exchange the empties for full ones or did they return with just the Brake Vans?
This tour didn’t appear on 6 Bells but neither did the two BV tours of 1966.
