Description

Coloured lithograph drawn, lithographed and printed by C Ingrey, 310 Strand, London. It shows a locomotive hauling 22 carriages carrying 400 pasengers acros Pendevy Bridge over the River Camel. Musicians are seen in two of the carriages, while a top-hatted guard sits in front of the 'Camel' locomotive engine, stagecoach-fashion. Built by Roger Hopkins in 1834, the Bodmin and Wadebridge Railway was one of the earliest routes in Cornwall, and was the county's first standard gauge railway.
