    There was another 20 there as well wasn’t there for spares, I remember one February half term showing up at Bodmin General and receiving directions from someone there whilst my Dad’s mate complained about how he’d come for a nice week in Cornwall for golf and here he was on some Industrial Estate!
    It was a bit of a Triumph photting 50042 :)

    Fitzgerald Lighting at Bodmin were the customer; they made domestic fluorescent fittings.
    Went into liquidation in 2019.

    The Bodmin & Wenford Website Locomotive Roster reports 4612 in service this Sunday. This engine has just had an unplanned retube after failing in March and completion gives the railway two steam locos for the summer, the other being Bagnall 2766 that has kept the show on the road for most of the year I'm told that the overhaul of 5552 is unlikely to be completed until the end of this season at the earliest.
