A very unusual occurrence, the last time about 17 years ago. Snow fell on the beaches here for the first time in 100 years. There was total chaos on the roads with the majority closed for several hours.
I remember going to Mallorca in December 1979 (or thereabouts) for a bit of Winter sunshine.  It snowed for the first time in 30 years.
With kind regards
Laurence

I hope you're both warm and safe, Brian. We've had some snow, here, more than the last few winters but much less than previous ones some years ago.

The early January Penmayne portion of a Withy Junction to Wadebridge goods train, hauled by a "Warship" to Wadebridge, has been photographed at Cant Cove. A portion for Trepol Bay and Port Perran was detached at Wadebridge by the Collett 0-6-0 taking the Penmayne portion forward.

They will be posted as soon as possible. I have my wife in hospital at the moment. The surgeon has removed a malignant tumor from her colon. She is doing well but all other things have stopped for the moment.
You know you're getting older when your mind makes commitments your body can't meet.

Very glad to read that your wife is doing well, Brian. I do understand. My sincere apologies. I didn't want you to feel that we had left you out.

We really understand.  Concentrate on the important things for now and get everything sorted before diverting to N-gauge matters again.  Our thoughts are with you.
With kind regards

Thanks for all your kind messages. She is over the op now and depending on the result of a blood test could be be on her way home tomorrow or Wednesday. Then the work starts at home! :worried: :)

Thanks, Brian, for the update. I do hope that all will go well for your wife and you.

I'm waiting for some items arrive before posting off a long overdue parcel to you.

All the best,
Chris
