Hi all,

Quick question, are all of the units that run branch line services in Cornwall maintained at the Long Rock depot or are some of the units maintained at the Laira depot?

A 150 runs down light from Par to Penzance after finishing on the Newquay Branch and then spends time on the St. Ives and Falmouth Branches before working away to Plymouth to cover the Looe and Gunnislake Branches and returns from Plymouth to Exeter.    Servicing and fuelling and any light repairs may be carried out at Long Rock and Laira but main maintenance is carried out at Exeter.   These may not be in the correct order but is the principle on which they work.
