The B&WR may have survived the Winter storms relatively intact, but what took us by surprise was a container truck becoming stuck under Bridge 12 during the morning rush on Monday 31 March. The B3268 Lostwithiel Road was closed for 6 hours, causing considerable traffic disruption in and around Bodmin. The railway was not running any trains on the day, and following inspection the bridge was declared fit for running on the Tuesday. The truck driver, a local man, apparently blamed his satnav!
