A bit of history steamed through Penmere station on Sunday as two old locomotives passed down the branch line to and from Falmouth Docks.

The train, pulled by an ex-British Rail and an ex-Great Western steam engine, ran over a period of a week visiting destinations around the UK, and travelled to Falmouth Docks before collecting passengers at Falmouth Town for a journey to Truro and on to Bristol.

What great memories this brought back of a gentle time being brought up in Falmouth in the late 50's and 60's. Now live in Western Australia but still making proper job tattie oggies. Anyone got a time machine?
