An example of heavy weathering (1). An old Castle Brewery (ex-SR) insulated van body used for storing the empty beer casks at Cant Cove station from the "Station Hotel" opposite ready for loading on the next branch goods train to the Castle Estate.

Cant Cove Loco Shed (Day 2) (9th picture)

The main parts for the workshop extension with the linking back wall before adding a small round window. Like St. Ive's former loco. shed, it will be covered in vegeatation; probably climbing ivy with some small bushes and wild grasses.

The reverse side of the workshop back wall showing the use of a clip to hold the glued matchstick in place that will be used to ensure a good strong corner joint.
