Two excellent photos., Martin. You've reminded me why it was worth all my landlord's hard work wiring up the lighting at Cant Cove!

These are stunning photographs, Martin.

Very clever; very clever indeed.

And I think it'll take more than a bit of welding to perturb Harry.

Thank you very much.

Love it (the picture, not whisky) :)   I think, I'll need to check, but I might be able to reproduce this photo in Perthshire!  I have a set of 3 tiny miniatures, but not sure if Whyte & Mackay is one of them.

Great pictures of a superb layout, every time I look, I see another cameo that I didn't spot before

Well, you can always imagine that you were still within the 12 Nights' period. 8-)

I suggest that you claim that the tree was left out for recycling and has not been picked up yet.

Plenty like this in our road!

Best wishes.

A busy little scene in the yard of Herman & Johns the metal fabricators near Port Perran.
It seems that a new cable  needs to be laid with two workers busy digging a trench. Mrs Reeve, the secretary, has rushed out of her office with an urgent message it seems


If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Many thanks for a splendid picture of an interesting scene.

Mrs Reeve certainly looks like she is on the warpath.  Do you think that the chaps have sliced through something?

I wish I could take photographs that good!

Best wishes.

Itís only my iPhone but we have those swivel type high intensity lights on the ceiling that I can move around so that the lighting is always right.

Itís quite pleasant on a Sunday evening (or any other evening for that matter) to lay on the spare bed in the train room and watch trains go round on Trepol Bay. I cannot, at present, do this on Port Perran as I have temporarily removed the track behind the back scene (thus making PP an end to end currently - although it still links directly to Trepol Bay via Penwinnick viaduct).
Anyway, this is my view whilst a Class 22 runs around with emptycattle vans and I listen to a bit of music. Sorry....I lost a slipper as I pressed the record button.
Itís the 2 layouts (warts and all) as I view them. And.....I notice that I need to shove the backboards together a bit on Port Perran! Plus.....I didnít get the wine glass in the video.
