Being of a GWR fan I take interest in various lines and one of my favourites is the Chasewater to Newquay line which the GWR opened its self in the early 1900’s, built to ensure the LSWR couldn’t get any further in to Cornwall, using part of the industrial line built in the 1850’s. One of best bits was the use of GWR 1898 architecture in the station buildings. Perranporth station building was a rather interesting Island platform version of the style, with the canopy extending around the building, sitting on a wooden platform with a subway, which was rare for a countryside station. It was also by the 1950's a strong outpost for 45xx/4575 'small parires', although I seen a image of a 28xx on a recovery operation. Any enough being boring, according to ‘Steam Railway’ when they were musing about railway preservation schemes which have failed and it stated that this line was subject to such a attempt. Anyone know what the ideas were and why it floundered?
