EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures a significant moment in history - the track repairs at Bodmin Road Station, St Winnow. Taken by Alfred Newton and Son in 1901, this image showcases four dedicated tracklayers hard at work on the railway line. In 1888, the Great Western Railway constructed a branch line connecting Boscarne Junction to Bodmin Road Station (now known as Bodmin Parkway Station). This crucial development brought St Winnow and Cornwall into direct contact with the main railway network, opening up new opportunities for trade and travel. The photograph beautifully portrays the Edwardian era with its timeless charm. The workers are seen meticulously laying tracks while wearing traditional attire of that time. Their determination is evident as they strive to ensure safe passage for trains passing through this historic station. Alfred Newton and Son's attention to detail is commendable; every aspect of this scene has been captured flawlessly. From the tools scattered across the ground to the expressions on each worker's face, one can truly appreciate their dedication and commitment to their craft. This remarkable print serves as a testament to both human ingenuity and progress in transportation infrastructure during an era marked by rapid industrialization. It allows us to reflect upon our rich heritage while appreciating how far we have come since those early days of railway construction.
