Ballast Regulator DR 77327. By Mick House.
Many thanks to Chris Bellett for the following :- Today (24/07/2018) you published a photograph on your website showing the start of the refurbishment work on the station building at Liskeard Branch Station (the Looe Branch platform). You asked if anybody could date that.
At the time of this work I was Network Rail Signal Maintenance Engineer based at Plymouth and I had responsibility for the electrical team that looked after the buffer stop lighting at all stations in Cornwall and Devon. As part of the refurbishment work the Looe Branch platform was temporarily shortened and a temporary buffer stop, and buffer stop lighting was installed that you can just make out in front of the train in the platform. I have several photographs of this work and they the installation ones, taken on the day of the platform shortening work, are dated 27 April 2004. It is worth noting that we did this ‘in-between service trains’.
Hope that helps with your query. Kind Regards, Christopher J Bellett
Many thanks to you Chris
