The line is flooded, journey update is saying reduced speed through flooding. I'm surprised anything can get through at all from videos on Facebook.
West Cornwall has suffered rain at an extent older local journalists are saying they've never seen anything like it.

Pirate fm and radio Cornwall both have several videos on their Facebook pages well worth a look.

Here in liskeard I'm glad to say it's a lovely dry evening, and unbelievable the conditions 30 miles or so away!

I live between Penryn and Helston, so the storm passed right over us. It was torrential rain for about 20 minutes with plenty of thunder and flashes of lightning, pretty spectacular.

Camborne station has no electric apparently. I'm not sure whether it's because of the weather or if they've ever had electric in Camborne  Grin

Just remember though (to ever so slightly misquote).......... "Trains don't stop Camborne Wednesdays"   Tongue

Or someone hasn't paid the bill.  It has happened before elsewhere on the railway.   Grin
