The leaf busting train
The leaf busting train
During the autumn the leaf busting train runs to blast the leaves off the line by high-pressure water jets. This shows the jet train heading towards Burngullow from Truro. The up line that the train is travelling over has been relaid recently after the line was singled in the 1980s as a cost-saving exercise. The line is now double track again.
