You can always rely on one operator to put the bins out!



Had to improvise on the vortex breakers on the stack!



Even the most cost conscious operators sub contract the drains maintenance out!

That's a very impressive refinery. Very different from rural North Cornwall but I do have some 1950s and 1960s era petrol / oil tankers . . .

Another scenic point is to plan a Woodham's-esque scrap yard - I have a few Del Prado static loco's lined up as candidate



{hoping I have got the picture insertion correct now so I don't get any more admonishments from the moderators  :-[ }

Thanks Lawrence

4MT is up 1st for a trial treatment



Had to removed the perfect coal load from the tender 1st - easier said than done on some Del Prado's!  More on that later!  (you can see the chunk of metal that had to be removed from the 4MT tender in the background)

What a wonderful project!  :greatpicturessign: I wish my layout had so appropriate a home! Currently it is in a spare "walk-in" closet with the water heater!
Check out Avondale - My heritage railway themed layout :)

Thanks Chris, having seen your work, that compliment means a lot

Once I get "moved in" to the railway room, will start thinning out some of my oil tankers (have a range from the 50's/60's BP-Shell through to the big 100tne modern ones) - while I have given myself the latitude of a preserved railway background, will focus mainly on LNER steamers (though do have a soft spot for the Deltic & Class 47.. & the class 20 & 08... ok, so maybe a softspot for the earlier diesel loco's and the HST 125!)  What can I say.. child of the 80's  :laugh:

Thank you, Andrew. So far, I really have done little scenic or building work but have plans to do a lot more at Cant Cove.

Running oil tanker trains from your refinery, over a preserved line, would be quite realistic. I have Shell, BP, and Esso four-wheeled tanker wagons form the 1950s and 1960s and, I think, being common, quite a few others do, too.

Your preserved line can, easily, have a selection of BR Green diesels and IC125's can visit on special trains, of course.

Once you have the home for your layout complete I will look forward to seeing your layout develop.

It was a very lucky find & in pretty good condition for its age - don't think there will be much progress on it until the spring..... the Scottish winter is setting in!

Your space will be warm at least :)

My memory has gone, forgot what the paint I used was (humbrol enamel I think)  but this is the 4MT rapidly surrendering to the elements

Don't know where the time goes!  PRPS has been busy behind the scenes though - a fully restored J39 0-6-0 is the society's latest offering and has been turned out in lined LNER black - photo's to follow and the local industries have been hard at work developing new oil filed pumps - the society have also received a large quantity of buildings from Japan, these will be used to expand the refinery and provide some much needed living quarters for the oil field workers
