FR/WHR Junction At Harbour Station
Mike Schumann added recently in an email to Kim Winter 16 Oct 2006: "Incidently, Will didn't do all the work on his own. There was another guy working with him and he had the help of myself and two of my school friends for two weeks. We relaid the throat points in a new location and didn't quite manage to complete the WHR points in that time. I suspect at that age I was not a very productive digger."
Return of the WHR
Interestingly enough, nearly 52 years, to the day, the points (above) were replaced, albeit on the platform line. The goods shed lines were long gone. These points were used by WHR trains from the reopening in 2011.
In the station remodelling of 2011-2014 the FR lines were moved south to make room for an island platform between them and the WHR line. The FR/WHR junction is therefore now much further out on the Cob beyond the end of the new platform.
