    James may I thank you for the impressive display of photographs regarding the engines at Penlee quarry. They remind me of my childhood as I lived in the white cottage above the track. I have often wondered if there was any photos of these engines and if possible purchase some copies of them so I can show them to my brothers and sisters and my Mother who all still live around the Penzance area. As for me well I live in Leicester. Hopefully you will reply and look forward to this.

    T W Lewis (Thomas Williams) was my grandfather. Manager of Penlee Quarry before ?? during World War 2. I remember the railway and the engine named after him.
