Thankyou for your thoughts everyone.
Iíve been looking at the area under consideration for some time and havenít been happy with it. I think Brian (Mito) has hit the nail well and truly on its proverbial head. That area is indeed too crowded. It would benefit from more space.
As for the camping coach idea. I see where you are all coming from and I like the idea but......the location isnít I think ideal being right by the railway and with the little noisy port below. In my mind, the beach at Trepol Bay is about a mile away (off scene).
So the coach will be going (sorry to all those who like it) to be replaced with a couple of railway huts and a tiny bit of clutter.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

I think your previous idea of having the BRSA building there would work as, being railwaymen, the members would not mind the trains.

The photos. are now up, on my Cant Cove thread, of the special rail ferry goods train, including a single blue CIWL Voiture Salon 4162. They show, behind D6577, the CIWL Voiture Salon followed by a BR Ferry, Open Wagon, in BR Bauxite, no. B715010, two BR Conflats with a "North Cornwall Pasty Co." and a "Sam's Cider" BD container, a "Palethorpes Royal Cambridge" sausages Siphon G, and a BR Standard Goods Brake Van (GBV) on their way from Cant Cove to Wadebridge. From Wadebridge, another BRC&W Co. diesel, D6571, has been booked to take the train forward all the way to West Porthsea to keep train crew route and traction knowledge up-to-date.

The remodelled yard at Trepol Bay looking, I feel, less cluttered.
The shortened carriage has become a railwaymanís bothy and store.

Itís rare to see a rake of crimson and cream stock passing through Trepol Bay but this evening the 15.45 5 coach Wadebridge to Truro train was so formed behind an immaculate Standard 5.Also, unusually, an M7 tank was performing shunting duties around the harbour.

Meanwhile, a rare view of Trepol Bay taken from out to sea with the SS Mew having just cast off headed along the coast to St Ives.

That electrical connector isnít really there. Honest  :D

Hi Martin,

Love the SS Mew and the harbour (and the trains). Am still faffing around with my harbour but getting there slowly. As usual, lovely modelling and great inspiration.

Cheers weave  :beers:

Lovely pictures, thank you.

Am I missing it... or is a Red Ensign on your 'to-do' list?

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

Smugglers don't fly Red Ensigns. There's a cargo of cognac, lambig and calvados awaiting at Trťmargat St. Croix but don't tell anyone  :no:  :D

 No name  :beers:

I'm telling the chaps that fly the White Ensign.  Maybe even 'Lucky Jack' Aubrey and his crew.  The smugglers had better watch out!

Jolly-dee.

Thank you very much for these two very good photos. I also particularly like the photo. of the "SS Mew" but agree it should be flying an ensign.

The first photo. of the Wadebridge to Truro inter-regional train behind an immaculate Standard 5MT 4-6-0 is made up of a local BR SR Bulleid 3-car set strengthened with an LMR Stanier design SO and a WR BR Standard BCK W21071 leading. The Stanier has been 'borrowed' by the Wadebridge Yardmaster having arrived as a through coach from Glasgow that had brought a party of Perthshire railway enthusiasts. Normally, Stanier design passenger caches are only seen on Summer Saturdays as part of the overnight Glasgow / Liverpool / Manchester to Penmayne / Trepol Bay service.
