City of Truro returns to Truro
A VIP special from Plymouth to Truro was run to mark the completion of the dualling of the railway track from Probus to Burngullow. Of course prior to the 1980s it had been dual track anyway but then the bean counting accountants who ran the railway decided they could save a few quid by making the railway single line between these points. 20 plus years later it cost millions to put the track back again ! Here 3440 is seen from the fence top steaming under the bridge at Grampound Road.
