You were correct....the MoD armaments depot is Ernesettle.
Also the occasional nuclear waste flasks from Devonport Dockyard to Sellafield. This is guaranteed future traffic as submarine decommissioning will continue for many years.

I recently came across a reference to Railfreight once carried on the Bodmin & Wenford heritage railway and then onwards from Bodmin Parkway by EWS. Something to do with a lighting supplier using the old EWS Enterprise mixed trainload service that ran from from St Blazey. Can anyone shed any light on this?

Was it a light goods service?

Tuesday had come down through Dundrum and Foster Avenue, brine-fresh from sea-travel, a corn-yellow sun-drench that called forth the bees at an incustomary hour to their bumbling.
