Cattedown gets a little less interesting

The Cattedown Level Crossing

Continuing the walk through Cattedown we reach the old level crossing. At first glance all seems well... Level Crossing Sadly it all goes downhill fast when we stand on the crossing and look right towards the oil terminal Gone! Compare this with the view from a few years ago 14-Tunnel The view looking left back towards Laira is just a depressing Gone! With a comment left earlier that even the scrap yard has been looking to relocate to larger premises I guess its only a matter of time before the whole branch line gets lifted and another bit of transport history disappears for ever.
