Work to complete rebuilding structures on the up side platform is to go ahead after several years of delays due to funding problems. The 1882 vintage station footbridge is to be carefully dismantled and may be donated to a heritage railway. Lifts linking the platforms via a passage below the trackbed are to be commissioned together with a replacement footbridge with sloping ramps.
A rake of CDA waggons is stored here awaiting attention to brake faults. Another rake is stored at Rocks Dryers. 17 condemned CDA wagons have, or are being cut up in the yard. At present only one rake of serviceable wagons is in use. This has resulted in more clay being moved to Fowey in lorries operated by Maen Carne. Repair facilities here have not yet been re-commissioned. Work to clear the yard of extensive growth has begun. It is planned to use the yard as a secure storage area for rolling stock and locomotives which has been condemned or awaiting repair.
During the next few months simplification of the track layout here will be carried out including the removal of the stub of the Carbis Branch which was retained as holding siding. The signalbox is to be retained until early 2015. N.B. The last passenger traffic to use the stub of the Carbis branch mentioned above was the Cornwall Railway Society ‘China Clay Rambler’ on the 3rd July 1990.
