He was the Cranmore signalman from 1951 until closure. He was ready to tell us many of his stories about how he had to climb in to the box because he had forgotten his key, the dispute between a driver and a local landowner who was a magistrate and the driver knew him professionally! A new arrival this week was a privately owned RBR (Nr 1674) due for attention by CTMS, the Contract Carriage Maintenance arm of the ESR.  The low loader is seen backing down the lane towards the unloading point in the Tanker Sidings Following their restoration of Cattewater, the group involved have tunred their attention to the Fish Van, used for storing spares.
