Keith was, at the time the magazine editor, a project which he enjoyed and played a great part in developing it into a full colour version. He also was the Society Archivist. As has already been stated Keith also assisted representing the Cornwall Railway Society at outdoor events notably at Audio Video shows - he was a devoted committee member.
Keith was also a very capable photographer and some of his work with colour film has already been shown on this website. Amongst his effects, passed to our then Chairman, Tony Wright, was a collection of black and white prints depicting the unloading operation of ‘Clay Hood’s’ at Carne Point.
We are very privileged to have this collection and are indeed honoured to put them on our website in his memory. The pictures are in fact, undated but it would seem that as CDA’s were introduced in 1987 and one of the last photographs in the collection shows a service date on a Toad Brakevan as for 1986 – so we must assume that the pictures are of that era.
These pictures are dedicated to the memory of Keith Lloyd and can be found on our St Blazey to Fowey and Fowey Docks section. Please click here. Once you are into the section scroll down to the very bottom and you will find a heading
'Move forward in time now to
1986/7 at Carne Point'.
