I'm guessing that the appearance of the name, Tregonning Creamery, for the first time is significant, Martin. 8-)
It is indeed. You obviously missed my post in layout in a largish case yesterday.Im not sure how to post a link to that here but if you scroll back a little way on that thread youll find it.
It is indeed the name for the new layout and creamery.
It's you railway so build it as you want and run whatever you like. The only rule is - ENJOY :

I guess it varies from browser to browser - too many to keep up with these days! But with Firefox I left click on the link (top pic) and then select the address in the browser address bar by triple-left clicking in that field, then CTRL+C to copy it in the usual way. The triple click also works when selecting the BB code when adding images in the Gallery by the way.

The 04.05 ex Tregonning to Truro mixed train is, this evening, somewhat unusually headed by the CLPGs nicely restored Dean Goods 0-6-0 as it heads into Trepol Bay under the harbour viaduct. The local 04 shunter is taking a wagon up the harbour incline to be attached to a later train to Wadebridge. On the left of the 04 the two wagons are in the private sidings of Messrs Prisk & Jones (Fruit & Veg Wholesalers).
An Ivatt 2-6-2T simmers in the small shed. It will later work the 17.20 service to Wadebridge and Penmayne.
The Southern National bus is heading towards Bodmin. No doubt taking some harbour workers home, their shift having finished at 4pm

A problem occurred just after mid day when a broken rail was discovered just West of Port Perran on the Chacewater line.
As a result all trains to Truro or Penzance from Newquay or Wadebridge were terminated at Port Perran with buses laid on to Chacewater.
This caused a certain amount of operational difficulties but very quickly the pw train was summoned from Wadebridge very unusually headed by a Q1 (on trial in North Cornwall). The Q1 is seen passing a mixed train (headed by a prarie tank) held in the loop just East of Port Perran station:

A more distant view of the same scene reveals a pannier tank temporarily stabled in the yard of the Port Perran timber merchants. The signalman appears to know the driver of the Q1. Meanwhile, on the station avoiding line in the distance, a china clay train is being assembled:

Turning around now we see the Q1 with its pw train heading through Port Perran station towards the scene of the broken rail.
The chaos caused by the line closure is apparent. The ex GW railcar is running a shuttle service between Port Perran and Newquay whilst the large prarie is waiting with the 1.40 departure to Wadebridge. Very unusually, two locomotives occupy the small shed road:

It became apparent that the pw train had insufficient ballast to repack the area under the replacement rail section. As such an extra wagon load was summoned from Wadebridge. Seen here approaching Port Perran behind a very clean M7 tank. An equally pristine 14xx tank waits in the loop with a ventilated fruit van containing produce from Messrs Prisk and Jones:

The chap walking along the lane seems rather unimpressed. Maybe hes in a hurry?

Excellent photographs, thank you, Martin.

Ending up on a motor omnibus rather than a train is one of life's hardships.

I happened to me last Wednesday - the North Berwick branch line train became an omnibus at Prestonpans.  The 'High Output Ballast Cleaner' had failed between Drem and Dunbar.  The ECML is bi-directional so all through traffic was using the one line.  The consequence was no capacity for little branch trains at Drem Junction.

All the best.

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.

Thank you, Martin, for another excellent set of photos. Due to the disruption in the Wadebridge area, a most unusual passenger train was seen at Cant Cove from Wadebridge. Unfortunately, the loco. had to be replaced at Cant Cove before the train could go forward to Penmayne with its disgruntled passengers. The offending loco. was sent back to Wadebridge with a short goods train. Exclusive photos. are expected, tomorrow.
