As you will see David Tozer saw the same HST as Craig - just a little further on on its journey - lovely sunny day.
Many thanks David
Mike Roach noticed this handy site. If you want to see where railways are and also where they once were both standard gauge railways and narrow gauge mineral tramways take a look at this website - it will prove useful and very interesting.
You may have noticed that Craig Munday has been absent from our site for a short while - he's been taking a holiday in Turkey. I can say that now he's back, a nice break from the long duty hours recently put in I hope.
To celebrate his return and the smashing weather Craig has sent in the following quartet of lovely summer views.
Many thanks Craig
The next day and Craig cops 57604 as it passes over Angarrack viaduct with the stock for 2E75 11.25 Par to Exeter St Davids 26th July 2014 Copyright Craig Munday. In the background Hayle Towans - the row of pylons lead to the one times site of Hayle Power Station and now the land terminus of the wave hub project.
More pictures of the derailment kindly sent in by Daniel Harris taken from the south side of the loop illustrate the problems associated with the recovery of the derailed CDA's on the Lostwithiel down loop. With many thanks to Daniel for these pictures which illustrate the difficulties faced by Network Rail staff in restoring normal services. Well done. N.B. These pictures were taken through the adjacent chain link fence. Many thanks Daniel
The following clip of shows the Waterloo Central Railway on which Victor is a volunteer. A very brief history - Victor was born in Redruth, emigrated to Camborne then emigrated to Waterloo, Ontario. A true Cornishman Victor is an avid reader of Cornish Newpapers and sends us many clips for which we are most grateful!

Popped up to Lostwithiel for 1C99 and 57305 as it was over 200 minutes late at this stage and is pictured coming down the up line..... 66176 is sat shut down in the down loop next to the errant 6G05.
Rear three wagons of 6G05 dropped off the catch points, passenger services single line working Largin East to Par all day, huge amount of delay minutes and cancellations.
Derailment photo is around 17:00 and shows the two wagons off, the third was only one axle off and had been dealt with by this pic. Cheers Nathan Many thanks Nathan
