Locomotive Smelter on the Redruth and Chacewater line, Cornwall. After 1854 Featured Railways Print

Locomotive Smelter on the Redruth and Chacewater line, Cornwall. After 1854

Driver and fireman posing for the camera and a group of small children looking on from the vantage point of a high hedge in the background. Authorised by an Act of Parliament in 1824, the Redruth and Chacewater Railway opened on January 30th 1826, running from the Gwennap copper mines to the south coast port of Devoran, with a branch line to service the mines of Redruth. The 4ft gauge line carried minerals and goods only and generally worked profitably. It was worked by horses until 1854 when two tank locomotives, Miner and Smelter, were bought - the first steam locomotives in Cornwall. Eventually during the 1860s the two competing lines were joined to form a coast to coast railway line. The line closed in 1915. Photographer: Unknown

Bodmin General station open day, Bodmin, Cornwall. June 1987 Featured Railways Print

Bodmin General station open day, Bodmin, Cornwall. June 1987

At an open day at Bodmin General station, visitors watch as engines are prepared. The trains operate on a 13 mile long railway from Bodmin Parkway mainline station via Bodmin General to Boscarne Junction. The Bodmin heritage railway was originally a branch of the Great Western Railway. In 1888 it was connected to Boscarne Junction which in turn provided a connection to the Bodmin and Wadebridge Railway. The saddle tank locomotive pictured, a Bagnall 0-4-0, was the last steam locomotive to work in Devonport Dockyard and is owned by the Cornish Steam Locomotive Preservation Society.
