That's a beautiful model.  Is it possible for the worm gear be masked?

I'll have to ask Gideon. Maybe a matt black painted piece of plasticard?

Gideon has said that he will see what he can do to mask the worm gear. (It's not due here until January.)

The "Castle Brewery", Trevelver Castle, Cant Cove, is a very traditional brewery and has a fixed seasonal program of brews. Each year, the beginning of November sees the availability, on draught, of 'Castle Brewery Old Strong Winter Ale' (ABV - 5.5%) and, the end of November / beginning of December, (specifically, the first Sunday of Advent), the 'Christmas Ale' (ABV 7%). The "Castle Brewery" sticks to the same time-honoured recipes for its 'Winter' and 'Christmas Ales' whereas the "Headland Brewery"'s latest 'Christmas Ale' is always eagerly anticipated each December with much ensuing bar room discussion as to its relative merits compared with previous years'! (Memories often not being that clear . . . )

All three seasonal ales will be served at the Cant Cove Christmas market together with a Creech Somerset Ale specially brewed for it as well as the annual Christmas Real Ale Festival in Truro. The local constabulary are giving their usual warnings about not drinking and driving and the advisability of travelling home by train and bus!

A varied selection of diesel and steam power has been promised for this year's Christmas special trains and enthusiasts are eagerly awaiting the confirmed details. A rake of SR Green and one of WR chocolate and cream mainline stock has been promised from Penmayne and WR stock from Port Perran and SR stock from Trepol Bay, all specially cleaned inside and out. The Penmayne rakes will both include a RMB Mini Buffet serving Castle Brewery Old Strong Winter Ale (ABV - 5.5%) and Christmas Ale (ABV 7%) on draught together with this year's Headland Brewery special, 3P (Port Perran Porter) (a 5.2% ABV dark, warming hearty drink). A short rake of specially cleaned BR WR chocolate and cream BR Standard RMBs Nos. W1813, W1816, and W1821 has been booked for use in the WR services and Green ones (the S1849-52 series) for the SR specials, such as S1849. North Cornwall Pasty Co. Cornish Pasties, served hot, will also feature on the RMBs' menu. It is promised that Father Christmas and his unusually attractive elves will also appear!

At the Headland Brewery (Port Perran) production is in full swing - especially the Christmas Brew of Port Perran Porter (3P). We see a chaotic scene with wagons from the brewery (plus others from Castle and Creech breweries) all being loaded with Headland Ales for distribution throughout Cornwall and the rest of the UK (including Scotland).

It is a similar story at the Headland Brewery Distribution Depot at Trepol Bay where again wagons are being loaded ready for marshalling into trains later.

Thank you, Gentlemen; all this talk of fine foaming ale is making me thirsty!

Great pictures. too, thank you.  George will be busy shunting that lot.  I hope gets his pint as well!   :pint: :pint:

I used a black etching pen that I got from Maplins - It blackens the worm so that it is not so obvious

hope this helps,

Creech Ales is rather concerned about the security leak of their new ale for Christmas. It was secretly loaded a couple of days ago and left on a regular train to Taunton  for onward shipment to Cornwall. As it's now public knowledge the name can be revealed as Winter Solstice Strong Ale. Known as WSSA. The sound made as you take your first mouthful!
Sam's Cider has brewed a special cider called Christmas Sparkle. I have it on authority that that is exactly what it does. :beers: :beers:
Durscombe yardmaster is waiting deliveries from Cornwall and will make sure of priority unloading.

Thanks, Brian (Mito). The identity of the specially brewed Creech Somerset Christmas Ale was kept secret, only its existence was known through the advance publicity for the Cant Cove Christmas market well as the annual Christmas Real Ale Festival in Truro, for which special trains will be running. The addition of the special cider called Christmas Sparkle from "Sam's Cider" at both events will be very popular with local cider aficionados! The arrival of the goods vans from Somerset, via the S&D and the SR mainline to the West, at Wadebridge for onward transfer to Cant Cove, Penmayne, Port Perran, and Trepol Bay, is eagerly anticipated.

Many thanks, Alex. I'll pass that tip on to Gideon.

Thank you, Martin, for another two excellent photos. At the back of the top photo., two just overhauled and repainted, light blue "Castle Estates" SWB vans can be seen, on loan to the "Castle Brewery", (a regular occurrence at times of peak demand for the products brewed and distributed by Trevelver Castle's traditional steam brewery). At the front several "Headland Brewery" vans awaiting departure to Cant Cove can be seen; they will be despatched by the next train to Wadebridge, whether goods or passenger, and then attached to the next connecting Penmayne service.

The "Castle Brewery" Christmas Ale (ABV 7%) is an easy-drinking dark ale brewed specially for the festive season using best quality English ingredients: double-roasted crystal malts and Kentish hops to create delicious aromas and rich flavours of fruit cake. It is the perfect accompaniment for cold meats and strong Cornish cheeses.

The "Castle Brewery" also has a very popular bottle-conditioned strong beer on sale from Autumn to Spring: "Imperial Stout" (ABV 8%): a jet black strong stout with a thick, creamy, khaki coloured head. It is a rich and complex brew with a spectrum from smokey to creamy with a nice hint of chocolate in the background. It is brewed to the high gravity and hopping level of 'Imperial Stouts' brewed in England for export to the Baltic States and Russia, which were said to be popular with the Russian Imperial Court.
