THE Bodmin & Wenford Railway has laid the first all-new piece of track work in its heritage era history.
The track work is a new point leading into the sidings at the Walker Lines industrial estate to the south of Bodmin.
All other track work on the line was inherited from British Rail or supplied second-hand.
The turnout also includes brand-new timbers, ballast and a membrane.
In a well-planned and well-executed project by the track gang, work was successfully concluded at 4.30pm on Thursday, February 8, just in time for the half-term reopening and the first public trains since New Year’s Day.
