"Mid Cornwall Metro" is about linking Newquay, St Austell, Truro and Falmouth.  Cornwall Council also want to look at what's next for the Falmouth line.  It doesn't include Burngullow - it's just too expensive for now.

The Newquay proposals are about the capacity improvements needed to increase frequency on the existing line with an hourly service being the ultimate objective - reinstating a second platform at Newquay in the mix. 
Thanks Richard. I scoured, Google, too, but could find no information. An integrated 'coast-to-coast' service linking the towns mentioned - and not to forget Penryn - would make a lot of sense, especially in summer.
Do you have any idea of the lines of thought concerning 'what's next' for the Falmouth line?

 

Absolutely, Andy.  On the Falmouth line, it's looking at, for example, what would be needed to go to a more frequent service still (e.g. maybe a loop at Perranwell) and whether a potential new park and ride station at Ponsanooth would be feasible.

I wish the Fawley reintroduction luck. 

No immediate need to get excited though as it's nearly six years since Chiltern ran a VIP special over the Cowley branch in Oxford with a lot of talk since, but no construction work on the stations or a committed start date yet.

Press Release from SWR» (South Western Railway - about)

Quote

Today, South Western Railway ran a special ‘fact-finding’ train, to investigate the potential re-opening of the Fawley branch line in Hampshire, after more than 50 years since regular passenger services ceased.

The special service follows a successful submission to the Department for Transport’s ‘Restoring your Railway Fund’ by Hampshire County Council. This funding will allow Hampshire County Council to carry out a feasibility study into reopening the line for passenger services once more.

The service became possible through cooperation between South Western Railway and Network Rail, who had to cut back undergrowth, test condition of the track, and prepare the train crew.

Boarding the train was Rail Minister, Chris Heaton-Harris; Network Rail Chair, Sir Peter Hendy; and representatives from Hampshire County Council and Southampton City Council.

Also joining the train was Nick Farthing, Chair of Three Rivers Community Rail Partnership, who have long campaigned for the opening of the line.

Whilst there is still work to be done before passenger services can resume, the national focus in expanding the rail network by utilising disused lines, provides hope that a return of services for this part of Hampshire maybe a step-closer to reality, helping to reconnect communities and promote public transport.

Rail Minister Chris Heaton-Harris said: “It is almost precisely 95 years since the line between Southampton and Fawley opened. Yet, due to the Beeching cuts, the last time passengers were able to travel this line England were lifting the Jules Rimet.

“While we can’t guarantee sporting supremacy again, we’ve been absolutely clear that we are determined to reconnect communities and level up infrastructure across the country. Taking steps towards restoring passenger journeys on lines like this demonstrates that commitment.

“The progress towards developing a business case for this restoration is testament to the energy and enthusiasm of local campaigners, and I share the passion they and other communities have to reopen and restore local lines.” 

Mark Hopwood, Managing Director of South Western Railway said: “Branch lines are vital to connect local communities, with many now out of use. Exploring the possibility of reopening disused lines for rail passengers is vital for us to reconnect our communities again.”

Network Rail Chair Sir Peter Hendy said: “Railways have a huge role to play in building environmentally-sustainable economic and social development and places like Marchwood, where the railway is still in place, are perfect examples of where we can help local communities grow. It’s great to see a passenger train down this line again and this has been a really useful event for our partners to understand what we might have to do to bring trains back permanently.”

Councillor Rob Humby, Deputy Leader of Hampshire County Council and Executive Member for Economy, Transport and Environment, said: “Hampshire County Council was very pleased that our bid to the Department for Transport’s restoring Your railways Fund was successful and we now look forward to working with the Department for Transport, Network Rail and stakeholders to review the evidence and undertake a business case for re-introducing passenger rail services on the Waterside line.”

'Reinstatement' of the Clitheroe - Hellifield Line is a bit disingenuous, or at least over-egged. There is a extant and used two track railway between those two towns with a Sunday passenger service. Maybe a reinstatement of weekday passenger service - hopefully with reopening of some intermediate stations - long closed.

Reinstatement of the nearby Colne - Skipton route - closed by Barbara Castle, not Richard Beeching - would be a proper and useful reinstatement.

From the Craven Herald

Quote
Settle and Carlisle railway group backs proposals for new train service to Manchester

A PUBLIC consultation on the possibility of the Manchester to Clitheroe train service being extended to Hellifield and on to the Settle and Carlisle line as far as Garsdale, is being strongly supported by a rail user group.

A bid by the Ribble Valley Borough Council into the Department for Transport’s ‘Restoring Your Railway’ fund, has passed the first hurdle, and a strategic outline business case is now being developed by a consultancy on behalf of the council.

While the study’s basic remit is to examine extending Clitheroe services to Hellifield, the public consultation asks for views on other options, such as running a new daily service from Preston to Hellifield, and extending trains beyond Hellifield, whether to Settle and Garsdale or to Skipton.

Annual "ask a stupid question" day isn't until 28th September (2021) - so I'm going to jump in now and ask about the Colne to Skipton proposal and ask if Colne to Skipton and Clitheroe to Hellifield have overlapping (potential) passenger flows and to some extent compete with each other??

They don't really compete- rather they would compliment. The Clitheroe route taps traffic to the north on the S&C (Settle and Carlisle ) into the Yorkshire Dales. The Colne - Skipton taps into traffic across the Pennines to the east. `Yes they both hit the same bit of ex-Midland Railway but far apart in different directions and would facilitate flows in three different directions simultaneously.

I see Colne - Skipton didn't even make the cut. That will disappoint many in the Ribble Valley.

I see Colne - Skipton didn't even make the cut. That will disappoint many in the Ribble Valley.

What cut? This is a list of bids, so no assessment (other than for compliance with the rules) is implied. And Colne-Skipton was in any case already accepted into the The Rail Network Enhancement Pipeline before the first list of its contents in Autumn 2019. It was shown as having passed the "decision to initiate" gateway and the next would be "decision to develop".  How far it has progressed since then is not known, as the next annual update hasn't come out yet.
