May the flatulence subside soon!

Very sorry to hear this, Martin.

I wish you a speedy recovery.

I have eaten one oyster in my life: unwell for a week afterwards and lost half-a-stone.

Never again!

All best wishes.

John

The Table-Top Railway is a train set trying and failing to be a model railway.

I believe that train sets and model railways are fun.

I don't think I've ever eaten oysters but I do like seafood. Get well soon. At least you can catch up with your reading.

Lord and Lady Poldain of Port Perran Manor and Sir David and Lady Rosemary Antrobus, Chairman of the Headland Brewery are invited to Marton Hinmarche and will be travelling in a "through" coach attached to a Wadebridge-Truro-Paddington pre-Christmas shoppers' special, via Trepol Bay and Port Perran. This second, Cornish coach, will be detached at Reading then added to an Oxford-bound service before, finally, being added to a train going to Marton Hinmarche. To fill the coach, tickets have been sold for Cornish visitors to Oxford where they will stay one night before going on to London, for the West End shows and shopping. A special train, behind a special loco. will take them all back from Paddington dividing at Bodmin Road with the forward portion going on to Truro, behind a different special loco. and on to Wadebridge via Port Perran and Trepol Bay. The rear portion will go forward, with the special loco. after it has recoupled, to Penmayne via Bodmin, Wadebridge, and Cant Cove.

Im afraid that whilst we are both on the mend, we are still not at full capacity yet so no railway still.
Hopefully, well be back to normal soon.
Setting up the railway from storage is fairly easy but requires concentration so its better I wait till fully fit. Hopefully early next week.

If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Very glad to hear that you are both recovering, Martin.

My guess is that it was a viral infection, so it does take a while to get over it.  It's good to take it easy during this period of convalescence.

With kindest regards to you both.

John

Seconded! Take it easy, read some books, watch some videos and wait until you're both fully recovered before doing anything strenuous. You could, if up to it, continue work on your WTT, especially the Summer Saturdays version! 8-)

Im pleased to report that Mrs PP and I are nearly back to full fitness.
As such, I hope to revert the spare room back to a train room tomorrow  :claphappy:

That's very good news, Martin. That was quite a long time to be unwell. Take it easy, though until you're fully recovered.

Glad you're nearly there. Once the train room is yours again you'll be there! :thumbsup:

Trepol Bay is restored to its place in the train room and is back up and running after a six week hiatus.
It needs a bit of a track clean but apart from that, everything is fine. The work I completed back in the Summer to simplify the way the boards fit together certainly paid dividends as it was so much easier to set up again.
To celebrate, I hope you will not mind me posting a  few photographs :
The first trains running have all been with fairly typical North Cornwall motive power.
First we have an N Mogul running into Trepol Bay from Wadebridge towards Truro with what appears to be ex works china clay wagons, perhaps heading towards St Blazey. Note the Ivatt tank on shed and the local 04 shunting the harbour lines.

Next we have a 45xx prarie tank heading away from Trepol Bay with a local for Wadebridge and Cant Cove. The Trepol Bay Diner located in the old carriage has just re-introduced its Winter menu:

Next, another Ivatt 2-6-2T approaches the road bridge with a parcels from Truro to North Cornwall.

Finally, its business as usual down in the harbour. The little trawler awaits high tide for its next trip whilst the driver of the diesel shunter takes a break sitting on the harbour wall. Above the harbour on the main line, one can just glimpse the rear of the parcels train seen in the previous photograph.



If it looks right then it most probably is right.
