Had a week in Cornwall, that’s why no posts recently.

It’s never a good idea to let people know you’re away from home, but if you wondered why there were no postings, that was the reason.

A few items of railway interest – saw “Lyd” at the Launceston Railway on the Thursday, in steam but not working trains, Hunslet “Covertcoat” was on our train. On Friday I managed to make a detour to see 6435 on the Bodmin Railway. Saturday found us heading for Okehampton for a ride on DEMU 1132 to Merldon Quarry. Sunday was the “big one”,  lunch at Looe gave me a chance to see 37685 & 9466 top & tail some specials on the branch, then to Bodmin Parkway to see 6435 & 30587, finally 60019 “Bittern” on “The Cornishman” returning to Bristol.

The photos will follow, he says hopefully, but don’t ask me when
