On Friday 17th May 2013 the Queen & Duke of Edinburgh travelled to St Ives via 2 royal trains. The main train & a service train on the branch with 150265 getting royal approval. 66201 was the surprise loco on the front going down after a fault on one of the class 67's

Whilst it is doubted if the Queen was terribly interested the old Network Rail yard can be seen to the left and the new yard to right! There will be a new road on the left hand side. Copyright K.

The Royal train stopped in the down platform at St Erth for some time before continuing west so that the train cleared the crossover - the train was then able to come in on the up platform to allow her majesty to simply cross the platform to the waiting class 150. 17th May 2013.
