Is that a young ET waiting to "cab" 1450?

OTC

No  Grin

I was able to watch the engines working from my bedroom window ...................... not so many trees in the 60 / 70 as now

Before we restart the guessing this is just for ET (taken from Winter Hill):

Yes, I'd go along with St Blazey for that one (having wasted spent a lot of time, digging around on the internet for similar images of some other stations in Cornwall).  Roll Eyes

The mileage meant it had to be somewhere in that part of Cornwall, surely?  Undecided

William Huskisson MP was the first person to be killed by a train while crossing the tracks, in 1830.  Many more have died in the same way since then.  Don't take a chance: stop, look, listen.

No.21 Correct.
Photograph taken in 2004. St.Blazey looking South towards Par Harbour with the Newquay line to Par station off to the left and Newquay behind.  To the far right an EWS Class 60 loco can be seen sat in St.Blazey yard.  In the middle to the left of the tracks are the Pick Up/Set Down posts for the St.Blazey to Goonbarrow Junction token section, a reasonably rare thing these days.  It was still used at the time of the photograph.  St.Blazey signalbox to the right.

I once had an argument debate about SB4 signal on the right.  Before I started on the area it had been fitted with a 4ft stop arm which applied to lines used by passenger trains.  But there is no facing point lock on the points ahead, so the line cannot be for passenger use and the signal arm should therefore be a 3ft one for goods lines.  You can see I won my argument (compare it with the others in view)..... Tongue

..mmm. Time to make these a bit harder.....

No.22 Correct.
Scorrier station site.  Photograph taken in 2005 looking towards Penzance.  The old station situated on the Cornwall mainline was opened as Scorrier Gate on 25 August 1852 and closed as Scorrier on 5 October 1964, but the platforms are still clearly visible at the time of the photograph, forty years later.  Behind the camera was once located Scorrier signalbox.

The rock face in the background makes me think of Cattedown. I can’t quite read the Industrial Estate sign to check
