St Ives

Sitting on the beach at St. Ives, enjoying the sunshine and watching the occasional train pull into the station. It would seem this holiday features quite a few trains. The apartment we are staying in is the former IKB carriage works in Loswithial. This morning we were woken by a class 66 passing light loco through the station, which is about 30' from the bedroom window !

Then a 57 pulling the cornish riviera sleeper train. The pictures are taken from our loft bedroom.

Later the 66 made a pass with a rake of clay wagons, but the video won't upload to YouTube mobile.

Presumably you are staying near the main line at St Erth, rather than near the branch to St Ives? I travelled on the branch a couple of years ago, very efficient, and some breathtaking scenery!

Sorry couldn't add comments via my blackberry, as you will see from my later post we are staying much higher near St Austell on the main line.
