The salt-laden North Cornish air can have a damaging effect on locomotive paintwork.

Here we see D1038 departing with two other locos

Good photographs, thank you, Chris.

We can blame the D1000's less-than-perfect paintwork on the Laira washing plant!

In contrast we see D1038 Western Sovereign several weeks earlier in almost pristine condition.
She makes a fine sight disturbing  the peace and tranquility of Trepol Bay whilst hurrying through non stop with a Wadebridge to Penzance working.

An excellent short film, Martin.  Many thanks.

Best wishes.

The Table-Top Railway is a train set trying and failing to be a model railway.

I believe that train sets and model railways are fun.
