Perranporth Station, April 1960
Locomotive No 4593 stands at Perranporth Station on 23rd April 1960 while the driver chats to a member of station staff before continuing on its journey to Newquay. The island platform sits between two running lines on the Truro to Newquay railway. A glimpse of a train waiting on the opposite platform can be seen to the left of the photograph.
Golant Halt, on the Fowey to Lostwithiel line, was a single platform station which stood alongside a stretch of water known as Golant Pill. The proximity of the line to the water is clear to see in this image which shows passengers waiting for an approaching train. The station provided a vital link for residents of Golant in an area with limited road access, opening the village up to both tourism and employment opportunities.
