Hi Keith Imerys are once again loading at Parkandillack on the branch. I understand the plant has had some belt equipment renewed in the dryer which allows loading here once again. The trains have been loading at Treviscoe for some time, so this makes a pleasant change. The ghastly incinerator construction is well under way,but is not rail connected. Stevie Burton shunts the CDAs with fresh loco for 2014, 66080 which will be replaced one 66176 comes off exam. Taken 15th Sept 2014.
Cheers Craig Many thanks Craig
Comment - Although the area is undeniably industrial it does seem a great shame that the green field, frequently populated by horses, that lay to the south west alongside the current end of the line has been ripped up and lost forever beneath such an ugly plant. Quite why this couldn't have been located on a brownfield (or whitefield) site elsewhere in the china clay district is a mystery!
