Ah, I misread the post for a minute.  I thought it said "Testing Locos".  The photo is fine, but it would be nice to see a loco test.
With kind regards

Thanks Martin.

Please don't reply as trying to sort this so can do proper explanations. They are really for you and Cant Cove storyline.

Bear with me.

Hi all, Edit - can reply now as ....

I think I've sorted this now. Ha.

Will start with a few pics and explanations and carry on later or tomorrow when my brain has calmed down a bit.

Although Port de Regleun has not been built yet as concentrating on Principat de Izaro (of which I will start a new thread soon) I decided to build a temporary port which fits in the kitchen so I could play around with levels, port walls, the sea eventually, ships etc and mainly the linkspans before I build the real thing.

Chris in Prague had mentioned that some of the inhabitants of Izaro and Brittany were going to travel to North Cornwall for the Chef competition on his Cant Cove layout so a few pics of their arrival at and departure from Port de Regleun to Porthsea Quay.

Both layouts will have two eras (1960s and 1980s/1990s) so apologies for the train ferry as I have 3 potential ones but although these pics are supposed to be in 1962 the hull of this one is from the '80s based a bit on the Nord Pas de Calais train ferry and the infrastructure is half nicked from a steamer so all very temporary at the moment.

Haven't sorted the order and don't want to muck up what little I have achieved computerwise so far, so basically empty port, goods train arrives behind an SNCF 150x from South East France with various goodies for Cornwall, some Cornish wagons (forget which liveries they are  :doh:), plus an Italian coach for tomorrow's arrival of the passenger ferry from Cork booked for pilgrims to travel to Rome.

The train ferry arrives from Paris behind a SNCF 231 E. The coaches and wagons sailing to Cornwall are shunted onto the ferry, both sides simultaneously for buoyancy, by two new SNCF BB 63000 (produced 1961) diesels.

Sorry for being so long winded. Here's the pics.....(hopefully!).....





































































Like you all probably, I've had enough now.

Cheers weave  :beers:

Hi all again,

Looking back at it the photos are not very good and everything is not very well explained.

Also it is all temporary so please forgive the bad modelling.

At least I know how, and mainly have written down so I remember how, to do the pics. Next is learning how to focus the wife's phone camera.

Cheers again, weave  :beers:

Weave. I can see where you're going with this and it looks good. I've been toying with the idea of a layout based on Cherbourg, but it's years away as it's still at the ideas in the back of my head stage.

I like the Nord. I also have one of these. It's a non-runner as the tender is hell-bent on self districting.

Keep up the good work.

Al.

Hi Al,

Cherbourg sounds like a big challenge. I've looked at all the ports both sides of the water.

The original Port Regleun was to be the main layout but I've gone with the French/Spanish border one as the main with Port de Regleun as a lot smaller layout stuck separately on the side with a connection so trains can run round the other.

I've got about 8' x 2' which sounds a lot to some but with the ferries and the curve the other end onto the big layout it'll need planning well. It'll prob be a mix of Dieppe, Boulogne and Folkestone.

Here's a model pic of Cherbourg set in 1944 if you haven't seen already to whet your appetite. Looking at the Bridge at Remagen I'm sure you can do better......

Looks good Weave.

I recall having a very similar drinking vessel to that, wonder if it has survived 2 house moves... :hmmm:

Thanks a lot, Chris, for the photos. and updates. The light blue livery is the North Cornish Castle Estates' stock whilst the apple green is Sam's Cider, Somerset.
