Not sure if you are aware, but the National Wagon Preservation Group are working alongside the Bodmin and Wenford Railway in preserving a small rake of CDA clay wagons, which are about to be retired from service. They are hoping to preserve around 8 examples, and keep them on the BWR. They are certainly an important piece of Cornwalls railway history, and the NWPG have opened a fundraising appeal which can be accessed via there online shop via the following link (Donations starting from £25) or donations for any amount you can spare via PayPal (see address on following screenshot) or Cheque via the NWPG address on there website.
Hope you can share this on your website, as it’s only been advertised via Social Media at present.
Keep up the great work with the website! Regards
I've mentioned that I did my final teaching practice in Callington in 1973 and while I was there, I took a look at the old station site up the road at Kelly Bray. Fortunately, there was still something left to see, although by the time I had walked up there after a day at school the light was beginning to go. Much more recently, I was able to buy (with copyright) a set of three colour slides that had been taken at Callington the previous year, although despite being taken in June it doesn't look as though the light was much better!

However, I have had it confirmed from a contact who is following the situation that the HST stock will indeed be used on ‘Tren Maya’.
“Apparently they will be used on the Tren Maya line, currently being built in the tourist area of the Yucatan Peninsula south of Cancun; which in an all too familiar tale, has been downgraded from electric to diesel traction to save construction costs.”
Just for info. Regards, Trevor.
