We all thought that after the recent closure of the route between Exeter
and Taunton we would never see an HST this way again in passenger
service. Will the 0900 Penzance to Paddington be the last, I wonder.
That said we still have the NMT once a month.
Could I impose on you and put this slide to you and ask if anyone knows which station this is? I have searched several station, but cannot find it or it has changed too much since 1975.
I’d be most grateful. Yours sincerely, Paul Delcour Hilversum, Netherlands. Only too pleased to help Paul. Well known to us in Cornwall, but very interesting note the point off the down main beyond the station and that the signalbox is still in use. The portocabin cabin seen to the right of the Western was the reception office for the Motorail which operated between Kensington Olympia and St Austell. The view is taken of course from the footbridge which was very recently replaced together with the downside station buildings which were replaced a number of years ago.
