When we had Signals
Cheers, Kyle Many thanks Kyle
A couple from Sun 4th at Lostwithiel.
The ECS for that evenings down Night Riviera was scrambled back towards the Capital with 57605 powering it. The train passes Lostwithiel still looking summery with the floral displays around the station.
A 5 car down stopper is seen in weak sunshine later in the afternoon. 150243/ 153329 / 153333 / 153305 are the units.
Then pictures from 8th Sept at Plymouth featuring the down Riviera 1C77 hosting the armed services celebrations. Events we held at stations along the route, including a choir from the Cathedral School of St Mary, part of MKC Heroes.
Penzance GWR Train Manager Jan Southon a former member of the armed services herself, proudly worked the train from Plymouth, along with other veterans working the service.
Kind regards, Craig A most interesting selection , many thanks.
Twenty two and three quarter miles from Taunton
Was a substantial station with the main building and approach on the up side and a waiting shelter on the down side. The station closed 10th September 1962 but the signal box, to the east of the station remained open until 22nd September 1964. The goods shed, put to other uses remains in situ - the former goods yard is now a scrap yard and is easily recognisable on the up side of the line. Just before the station when heading east the train crosses over the A37 - the Foss Way.
