Trelill Tunnel looking toward the south Portal, which is shown above. A very dark and damp place.

17/09/2012

Looking north from the northern Portal of Trelill Tunnel.

17/09/2012

Trelill Tunnel Northern Portal, although damp, a lot clearer than its partner.

17/09/2012

Trelill Tunnel northern Portal, quite clear of undergrowth, but at some stage a landslip has occured.

Port Isaac Road Station Trackplan

17/09/2012

Not just interesting Railway remains that we come accross.

17/09/2012

Port Isaac Road Station.
Slowly being restored to its Green & Cream colours, now how about those trees!

17/09/2012

Port Isaac Road Station.
It really is a long road to Port Isaac.

17/09/2012

I wonder when these were last used in an emergency!

17/09/2012

Port Isaac Road Station.
Like the Stations the Goods Sheds were quite solid and quite a few have survived.

17/09/2012

Port Isaac Road Station.

17/09/2012

Port Isaac Road Station.
The Station approach is on the right, another 1/4 mile to the Station.

17/09/2012

Davidstow Moor Airfield, a very desolute place, and often shrouded in fog and mist it had avery short lifespan as an RAF base.

17/09/2012

Davidstow Moor Airfield.
As with most disused RAF bases a very eerie place, you really do expect a Liberator to suddenly land over your head.

Tresmeer Station trackplan 1900

17/09/2012

Tressmeer Station.
A lovely place for a country house.

17/09/2012

Tressmeer Station.
Interesting that brick is used here and at Egloskerry.

Egloskerry Station trackplan.

17/09/2012

Egloskerry Station.
Now a very attractive B & B, a shame patroms couldn't come by train.

17/09/2012

R.H. Moon & Sons at Ashmill opposite Ashwater Station.

17/09/2012

I believe the company are still local, supplying local farmers, a shame something couldn't be done with their vacated premises.

Ashwater Station trackplan.

17/09/2012

Ashwater Station.
A return to stone and a very attractive house if you can keep up with the bills.

17/09/2012

Original overbridge at Ashwater Station.

Holsworthy Station trackplan 1900

17/09/2012

Eastern approach to Holsworthy Station

17/09/2012

Holsworthy Viaduct.
Strange how the Station and yard has been swept away, yet both Viaducts survived, although Holsworthy Viaduct is in very poor shape now.

17/09/2012

The underbridge that the last but one photo was taken from, the Station being to the left here.

17/09/2012

Derriton Viaduct in comlete contrast to its neighbour, it now carrys a cycleway but sadly dosn't go much further than the trees in the distance, but hopefully it will take you to Bude one day.

Dunsland Cross Station trackplan. 1900

17/09/2012

Dunsland Cross Station.

Ashbury Station.

17/09/2012

Ashbury Station.

Both sides of the bridge the Exmouth Junction concrete steps still head down onto the platforms.

17/09/2012

Ashbury Station.
This platform for trains to Okehampton and beyond!

17/09/2012

Ashbury Station.
Now I wouldn't like to have to water those pots in the summer.

17/09/2012

Lydford Viaduct.
The trees really have got the better of the Railway here.

Lydford Station trackplan.
The plan gives no indication of the distance involved in walking from the public road to either of the Stations, let alone the distance to Lydford.

17/09/2012

Lydofrd SR side.
This is looking from the SR Station approach road which crossed the main line shown on the plan above on the extreme right. Hidden by the trees in the distance the SR platforms survive.

17/09/2012

Approach to the GW station at Lydford from the north, this bridge is just off the plan above at the top right.

Brentor 1960

17/09/2012

Brentor Station, kept in very good order.

17/09/2012

Mary tavy and Blackdown.
The GW line is in the foreground, the SR line climbing at around 1:73 is leaning to the curve past the PW hut.

17/09/2012

Mary tavy and Blackdown.

The last photo was taken to the left of the bridge in the opposite direction, under this bridge was the GW Station, Mary Tavy and Blackdown. The SR line is leaning quite sharply to the right, and passes under the road with its own bridge hidden by the trees to the left of the PW hut.
