Many thanks Karl.
More to the point was the picture of the Cylinder Bridge of the Yealmpton branch. I have not seen anything much of the current state of this railway for quite a while and I was reminded of our Sunday school ‘treat’, to some farmers field in Yealmpton. Pannier loco, gated stock in just post war days; at least, I remember some of it!
Thanks for all the daily articles and pictures. Looks like good weather in the South West recently, just like here at the moment.
Many thanks Clive.
