The cornish flag on the 08 is going to take a lot of cleaning to keep it looking like that!

Gorgeous Cornish weather.  Everything sparkling although the HST set could have looked better though, including a windscreen wash.  Looked well attended too!:)

Don’t be deceived Brian, it was blowing a gale and freezing!

It was warm enough when you were out out the wind, but there were precious few places to be found that were out of the wind.

Fair bit of clag coming off that 68, thought they were supposed to be more environmentally friendly than the old diesels?

Those pics would go well in the 'When the real think looks like a model' thread.

It might not be main line these days but the SR certainly considered it to have been when they ran it.  Thanks for the pics - it's a line I have visited a couple of times but on both the weather was the infamous Cornish "mizzle" making even useful record photography a challenge.

Its been many years since we last visited. I also remember visiting not long after it first opened on a shorter run and the friend i was with had a 'cab' ride.  Must get back there.
