If you have seen Cornish Comedian Jethro you will know that he tells the tale of the train that does not stop at Camborne on Wednesday. This train was not stopping but was powering up the grade from Penponds and onwards towards Redruth on the Penzance to Plymouth main line. On the left in the old goods yard can be seen the Magnet store.This was the view west from the downside platform.
