Weekend Engineering trains Craig Munday
Hi Keith It seems the last few months of 2020 are bringing the South West some interesting workings. The Fowey single line was was relayed at Miltown near Lostwithiel, and three trains visited accompanied by fine weather: DB Cargo's 66112 is seen returning to Westbury passing Budge's Shop near Trerulefoot. GBRf 66752 and 66761 make a colourful appearance on the autoballasters seen at Dobwalls and Lostwithiel. DB Cargo's 66175 and 085 work the Balfour Beatty rail deliver train back to Westbury past Dobwalls, with a busy scene in the fields with silage bales being made up. A visit to Goonbarrow box later in the day saw the two industrial shunters Isaac and Alex posed nicely in the afternoon sunshine. Alex still sees regular use shunting the CDAs for the time being. Cheers for now, Craig.
