150240 rolls on to St. Erth

Photographed in 2006, this train is travelling between St. Ives and St. Erth on what I would consider to be the prettiest branch line in the country. (Greenford to West Ealing comes a distant second)

After walking from St. Ives to Lelant we stopped for a well deserved luncheon at a pub called the Badger Inn although we didn’t eat anything. “Why?” you might ask. Well, we’d planned to catch a train on the branch line back to St. Ives, so beautiful are the views (as you can see in my first post), and we were expecting a full range of refreshments would be found  aboard. We were very disappointed indeed that the train offered no such facilities. So popular is this line with locals and holidaymakers alike that the provision of a well stocked and efficient buffet car would be most welcome. It certainly would have been for us. Instead, we had to make do with the meagre fayre offered in St. Ives.
