On the 10th June formed also of IETs 1Z30 Paddington 08.45 Bristol Temple Meads 10.06/1010 Exeter St David's 11.07/11.11 Plymouth 12.03/12.07 Truro 13.10/13.13 St Erth 13.36/13.40 Penzance 13.49
Could this be in connection with a local event in the area, one wonders.
One also wonders will there be a special service on the St Ives branch in connection with the above workings? Photographs of any train activity on the St Ives branch would be of great interest - but don't get into any trouble.
Many thanks to David Tozer for giving me the initial advice.
Kind regards, Paul.
The special on 2nd was photographed down west, it coincided with dad's 79th birthday! The train is heading west beside a lovely wild flower meadow near Gwinear Road, and returning atop Angarrack viaduct. Tricky weather and light all day.
A day at Lostwithiel saw sunshine and dark skies alternate throughout the shift. An eastbound 802014 is seen passing the box in fine light with dark clouds west. Whilst, a little later on, 66119 was swapped on to the local clay circuit having arrived the day before with the Stoke empties. It is seen departing Lostwithiel bound for Carne Point.
Finally, the NMT passes Mount Charles bridge (a 20 mins stroll from my home) with 1Q18 Reading to Penzance and return NR test train. The recent cutting back exposing views not seen for years, particularly from the social club there.
Cheers for now and all the best. Guy
Many thanks Guy.
