Beattie "well tank" no 30587 crosses Pendewey bridge, soon after
leaving Boscarne junction, 8th April 2003.
|On April 7th & 8th 2003, the National Railway
Museum's Beattie well-tank locomotive, no 30587 was launched into public
service on the Bodmin
& Wenford Railway with a weekend of special trains. This programme
covers all the activity: coaling and watering in the morning; passenger
trains to Boscarne Junction and Bodmin Road (oops - Bodmin Parkway these
days!) shared with pannier tank loco 4612; brake-van specials to the outskirts
of Bodmin; shunting in the evening. It finishes with a ride on the evening
"pasty special" to both Boscarne Junction and Bodmin Road, filmed from
the veranda of a brake van and from the line-side, returning after dark.
