Quayside Railways

  Continuing the walk into Cattedown

The next set of photos from my walk into Cattedown a couple of weeks ago. It is nice to see these signs being placed along the route letting people know little snippets of transport history. Quayside Railway At least the track is still in place here. The Cattedown Branch
There is still the occasional train serving the scrap yard which is just around the corner on the left The Cattedown Branch Sadly I have to wonder just how long the trains will still serve the scrap yard.

If you subscribe to this blog in a reader you may have seen a new post last night about a 50p fare offer for Plymouth. It was in fact an old story from last year which mysteriously arrived in my reader again this year so I thought it was new news! It was only when I added it to my calendar I realised that the days didn't match up!

  1. My old man keeps his boat in the yard visible in the last picture, and according to the boatyard owner, the scrapyard has been looking to move to a larger site for quite a while now. The move has seemed to have stalled recently, but if it does happen, then the boatyard is looking to expand onto the site.
