Here are three pictures taken in 1976, 2 days apart!
47209 appeared on 27/9/1976 and I had not seen a working there in 6 years of visiting my sister in Cornwall. Then 2 days later 1071 put in appearance. Definitely the icing on the cake!!
Note from Craig: The 47209 shot has me confused as I understood that moves to / from Holmans were signalled in from the Ground Signal (number 16) on the crossover, there was no signalled route in from R4 at the station. Likewise, the short signal at the exit only read towards the Down Main, so I guess the loco heading Eastward from the point it is at would have been an "unsignalled" move towards Dolcoath crossing. The train is also beyond the treadles for Dolcoath crossing, so goodness how the crossing sequence was commenced, perhaps I'm asking some "awkward" operating questions....
Despite these teaser questions, they are a fantastic find, and Steve has offered us more pictures for the website.
Kind regards Craig Many thanks to you Craig, to Nathan and especially to Stephen (Steve) Burdett. These will also go on the Roskear branch section.
