Goodness, our lack of April showers has certainly been balanced by a soggy May! Day after day of jet stream misery. There have been a couple of bright spells, fine for stabled trains, but hit and miss for anything on the move.
The WR Weedkiller MPV was serviced over the weekend of 15/16th May. It ran down early Saturday morning and departed Monday afternoon towed by 66011. The return on Monday is captured in some brief fine spells at St Blazey. The MPV is seen undercover on Sunday in the company of two CDA wagons and the trusty BZ wheelbarrow.
17th: GW06 set is seen powering away from Bodmin Parkway with power car 43154 leading. The sky ever threatening and the trees look beautiful with their fresh coat of leaves.
Finally an odd one. I've been scanning old negatives as the picture quality is remarkable after 30/40 years though scratches and blemishes can be a nuisance. This 1984 picture of 47594 arriving at Penzance plopped onto my hard drive, an image I dont think was ever printed! Fotopost Express were normally bulletproof, but I think they missed this one. Imagine a nice image hidden away in a shoe box since then! Craig's top tip: Dont throw anything away!
All the best, Craig.
