Penmere

As Sparky, Echo, Hedgie, and I got off our train at Penmere, we were transported back in time. The station had been lovingly restored to the “glory days” of BR Western Region ownership. This meant that classic signs in their classic livery had been installed, and the station was adorned with a garden and hanging baskets that would make most other stations quite envious. Our stop there wasn’t a long one, so there wasn’t much chance to go exploring, but the station was well photographed, including the old station sign, and the BR totem signs. The garden even had a little planter in the shape of a small steam locomotive, which also was well photographed. There was a very photogenic bridge over a road right next to the station as well, which may have been subject to my camera with a train heading to Falmouth on it. After exploring the station all over, we hadn’t left enough time to go explore the village, so we headed back to the platform and made friends with a cute pug who kept sitting on my foot and demanding fusses. I was only too happy to oblige. Eventually our train came to take us to the last stop before Truro.
