Apologies for the delay - Andrews report for yesterday
I had an enjoyable day down Laira Depot way in the warm October sunshine today, and a variety of photos for CRS
All the Best, Andrew
Many thanks Andrew, making the best of the good weather.

Stage two commissioning
Dolcoath being significantly upgraded to a full barrier Obstacle Detection (OD) crossing.
The many user worked crossings in the area getting red/green miniature red/green lights.
Six new stop signals between Gwinear Road and Chacewater. These have already reduced congestion and improved headways on the Cornish mainline. The hour hour service will benefit from these new signals. Particularly satisfying that areas which lost boxes in the 70/80s have stop signals once again like Hayle, Chacewater & Redruth.
New axle counter track sections has resulted in the Roskear to Truro portion of line being Track Circuit block throughout.
Kind regards, Craig
Many thanks indeed Craig for this detailed report and pictures.
