I have this banner, and I don't believe some of the image labelling:



Now I don't see how that's between Bere Alston and Gunnislake. But where is it?



And that looks like the marker is at Kinlochleven - some distance from Glenfinnan.

The first one looks rather like the St Ives line.  Agree with you on the second

The St Ives branch image has also been reversed as the train appears to be on the wrong side of the Hayle estuary, unless the Hayle wharves line has been relaid and extended towards Mexico Towans.

Also, two thirds of the Tamar Valley Line is in Devon.

Indeed. Which is why I queried it as

Wow ... so it *is* the section I had kinda-guessed between Lelant and Carbis Bay - but the reversal is a gem.  I think someone's gone for artistic design over accuracy on this banner.
