A view of a busy Trepol Bay earlier today with a local from Wadebridge to Truro behind an Ivatt 2-6-2T about to depart Platform 1.

Next a closer view of the local (thanks to Chris for the suburban brake). The pannier will leave later for North Cornwall. Note the Christmas tree :

Twenty minutes later the local to Truro is seen rounding the curve into Port Perran station (having just passed Perran Saands Halt). An 04 shunter waits with a very short train of drainage pipes from the local Engineering works :

Many thanks for these photos., Martin. Now the same pair of SOUTHERN lined gold livery coaches can also work 'through' behind a M7 or Ivatt. I know they are 'generic' Graham Farish suburban coaches rather than (far more expensive -- I only have BR SR Green ones for local trains) Dapol Maunsells but I think the pair look very good in SR Green lined out in gold. It must be a CLPG Christmas special from Wadebridge to Truro train. The CLPG, (Cant Cove), usually uses a BR Lined Black Late Crest M7 with their pair between Penmayne and Wadebridge (as previously pictured at Cant Cove when we had some sun) but an Ivatt would be more appropriate for coping with the gradients beyond Wadebridge particularly with a full train.

OK.... I've decided that I have too much stock !
Been running some trains this afternoon and spent too much time searching for specific wagons or coaches which are scattered around the fiddle yard.
Especially the coach that I sold at a show last year..........took me ages before I remembered !

Mine are all in boxes, Martin, and it is difficult to remember what stock is in which box.
