An unidentified HST forming 1A83 10.00 Penzance to Paddington, "The Cornishman" approaches Liskeard on the 24th June 2015. The area to the right of the train opposite the end of the down platform is the site of the former goods yard. In the early sixties I used regularly to make sure I saw "The Cornishman" at around twenty past seven in the evening. Hauled by a Castle class locomotive it was one of the few expresses to call at West Bromwich, my home town, on its way from Penzance to Wolverhampton. It's certainly a different train these days!
