Been on a reccy as hourly service continues .... Photos taken at around 5.30pm tonight.

Lovely shots RC. Thank you for them  Grin
Seconded.

<Tongue-firmly-in-cheek mode>
If you ask me, the problem would appear to be the big block of wood between the switch rail and the stock rail near the platform edge, and the two yellow G-clamp thingies holding the other switch rail to the other stock rail.

Still, given the discussions we had sometime back about the use of these type of points on the Melksham single line, it would be good to get any bugs out of the design before they come to Wiltshire.  Grin

I don't think this was anything to do with the problems at Penryn.   There was a signalling issue getting the second unit onto the branch.

They will be publishing a safety digest.

When it is clear that the safety learning from an event has been identified by a previous investigation or relates to compliance with existing rules, we may choose to publish a safety digest, rather than carry out a full investigation.
