A slideshow of images on the Marsh Mills- Launceston branch in 1962.
The Boltorr branch would have split off, north-eastwards across Dartmoor.
Around that time I was lucky enough to visit a few times the Tavistock Junction signal box. The signalman was Fred Morrish, a friend of my dad’s.

I’m aspiring to this on Boltorr Rd.

Credit where credit’s due – The panoramic header for this blog was realised by my nephew, Jamie Halton – private commissions undertaken 😉
It’s a 5gb image which will eventually be used as a backdrop for the Boltorr Branch layout.
