Driver’s Eye View: Cornish Branches
Available on back-order
LOOE TO LISKEARD, LOSTWITHIEL TO FOWEY, PAR TO NEWQUAY, FALMOUTH TO TRURO, ST ERTH TO ST IVES
No less than five branches are featured, in fact all the passenger lines and one freight. The scenery of the Looe branch with the interesting reversal and climb from Coombe Junction, the freight-only branch to Fowey, running alongside the picturesque river, the meandering Newquay branch, the Falmouth branch still with its original main line infrastructure and finally the classic coastal railway over golden sands to picture postcard St. Ives.
This is now a virtual archive as all the motive power is first generation DMUs on the passenger branches (single and two car) and a Class 37 loco on the Fowey branch.
Filmed in 1991 and narrated by the late Anton Rodgers (famous for Fresh Fields among many prominent acting roles).
