Note the red Ford Fiesta parked on the narrow island platform. Once it was common to see staff motor vehicles parked and being driven within 'station limits', H&S has seen to it that this will never, ever happen again!!

Appeal for archive information
Wadebridge 1966 onwards. Member Mike Manning.
While working on my book of the run down and closure of the railways of
Cornwall and Devon I have become stuck on the details of its track lifting.
I have details of the lifting of the Padstow to the Quay junction at Wadebridge
by May of 1968. The quay sidings were still in use until April 1973.
After that the tracks were lifted up to inside the level crossing gates. When?
The Signal box and the pedestrian footbridge were demolished as no longer
All tracks within the Wadebridge station area were lifted by a different
Contractor to the one that lifted the Padstow section. When?
Was this photo in my collection part of this clearance?
Also when was the NCR lifting to Wadebridge completed ?
I have a picture of Delabole minus its tracks in April 1968, but no completion date at Wadebridge.
Any snippets of information will be gratefully received to complete this Cornwall Section of my book.
Thank you Keith and Roger.
What is needed is a note saying MICHAEL IS SPELT MICHEALMANNING
