In use earlier this week, several reports that it has been full at times over the summer months.

Looks like lovely weather down that way.

Must find an excuse to travel from Snerth to Snives by train again soon.

More people have been recorded travelling on Cornwall’s trains to St Ives this summer than any other year. Following the opening of the St Erth Park and Ride in June, 406,000 journeys have been made on the St Ives Bay Line, nearly 89,000 more than last year, an increase of 28%

Odds and ends associated with this project continue to be completed. I was at St Erth yesterday (29 Dec 2019) waiting for the 1626 up IET to Truro. The new high intensity LED lighting on the platforms installed intermittently over the autumn is superb. The throw across the platform area that each post is designed to cover is as near as perfect as far as I could see as night fell. A tremendous improvement.

Thats interesting.  Must have a look at that soon.  Does it throw much light pollution like the local street lighting around here does?

Light pollution is indeed significantly less, indeed Cornwall Council has been replacing light polluting sodium street lamps with more directional white light ones too. More recently the MOD have also replaced large sections of the offending perimeter security lighting at RNAS Culdrose with similar highly directional, less offensive, focussed white light lamps.
