Does this work mean resignalling for the immediate station areas at Truro and St Erth?

No, its only the provision of additional intermediate signals to allow a half-hourly interval service to run.

Presumably the block indicators from RJ - TR will disappear?

Interesting article, and once again the wheel turns full circle, with new intermediate signals presumably at the sites of long-closed signalboxes - certainly the case for Menheniot and Bodmin Parkway.

I note with interest the proposed use of a white/green banner repeater on the down line at Bodmin Parkway. Does the line speed through that station warrant the extra indication or is there some other reason for using it?

I was under the impression that white/green banner repeaters were now being installed as standard?

The sectional appendix shows line speed as 50mph through the station, increasing slightly to 60/65mph outside.

Rumoured some money has been found for resignalling Truro and Lostwithiel?

Stage 1 of the Cornwall Capacity Enhancement project was commissioned last weekend, 21/22 April 2018. This involved new intermediate signals between St.Germans and Liskeard controlled by an amended Plymouth Panel, and new intermediate signals between Largin and Lostwithiel controlled by a new, replacement, panel in Lostwithiel signalbox.

Photographs can be seen on the Cornwall Railway Society website: http://www.cornwallrailwaysociety.org.u ... hotographs

Note: The photographs will progress further down the page as each day passes.
