As the tour is being run for the Branch Line Society, I would expect that it will operate right to the end of the line at Moorswater, in the Tarmac Lafarge site. If it is a long train, it might well block the level crossing, so, if you are planning to go and see it there, make sure you are on the right side of the tracks before the train appears !
And as the link line at Liskeard is not approved for passenger use, BLS passengers on the train will have to disembark at Platform 2, and walk over the bridge to the Looe platform 3 to rejoin the train, just as previous railtours have done here. And the same in the reverse direction.I hope the sun shines !
Best wishes, Peter. Many thanks Peter.
