Isambard Kingdom Brunel Engineer's Report

The Royal Cornwall Gazette, Falmouth Packet, and General Advertiser (Truro, England), Friday, August 27, 1852; pg. 6; Issue 2566. 19th Century British Library Newspapers: Part II.

18, Duke-street, Westminster, 29th July, l852.

Since my last report. the works between Redruth and
Trnro, have been proceeding with such vigor, that l have
no doubt that portion of the Line will be ready for opening
to the public, by the time of your next half-yearly meeting.

The relaying of a portion of the old line,between the top
of Angarrack and bottom of Penpons, with Barlow’s rails,
has been completed and taken into the company’s hands.

The contractor is at present re-laying the portion of the
old line, between Camborne and a point near Redruth,
and it will, no doubt, be completed in a few weeks.

Upon the new lines already opened, the works are in
good condition, and the traffic will no doubt require some
additional small sidings at various stations.

Additions to the carriage end waggon stock, necessary
for the anticipated increase in traffic, are being made, and
two locomotive engines have been purchased on favorable

Considerable progress is made with the station at Red-
ruth, and a temporary station will be provided near Truro.

               I am, gentlemen,
                      Your obedient servant,
                                            l. K. BRUNEL
     To the Directors of the
West Cornwall Railway Company.
