The former Trevelver Castle Brewery,  justly famous for its award-winning ales, has also invested in continuing services both passenger and freight to distribute its local ales (via Cant Cove yard), as well as having a reciprocal arrangement with Messers Bass Worthington to distribute theirs locally for all the thirsty summer tourists from the Midlands and North! (So, I needed some Trevelver Castle Ales 4w vans to go with my Bass and Worthington ones!)

This morning's update (the sun was a bit weak so the pictures are a little dull):

The latest photos of the ex-LNER 'Wadebridge' brake vans (still some weathering to do on the first and third one), the two dustbins on their paving stones (before the edges were painted) and Sid the Surveyor who always puts his bin out Monday mornings!







Jon's grey van still has to have the roof weathered and a little more drybrushed black in places.

Cant Cove Cafe with its new bins ready!





The two dustbins really add the perfect 'touch', I think.

Only the signs and sand to be added, now.

Love the cafe Chris.  Not sure about that last brake van though - could get a bit cold with no roof! :)

Thanks, Paddy. The cafe was 'in planning' in my head for months. The next time I make one, for Penmayne, I'll add a window with extractor fan (Ratio brass), in each side instead of the central blackboard.

The roofless brakevan had to have a tiny break in the van roof end support superglued before I can put the roof back. Jon's van now has a smoke-stained roof.

As promised the lightly weathered wagons, two BR bauxite open wagons, and old Castle Estates van plus old, patch-painted, more heavily weathered Castle Brewery van:

Now more picture's of Jon's brakevan, only the black data panels need to be 'tidied up' with grey paint and the horizontal handrails, on the body whilst the roof needs some dry brushing with grey to reduce the impact of the black smudges:

The brake van looks good.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Looks amazing chris. I've heard on the grip vine that the WR management have had a meeting and I've heard that a Class 22 with a rake of grain wagons has being given the go a head to run to Castle Brewery via Can't Cove yard. I believe this service will start running in November. ;)

Thanks, I'm enjoying painting these brake vans. I have two Class 22s and various grain wagons: the Dapol grey ones, the Peco brown ones and the blue whisky ones which will be changed to blue Castle Brewery ones. Hops from Kent and Worcestershire and barley from East Anglia would be typical and would reach the SR on cross-London inter-regional freights. North Cornwall was  served by goods trains departing from Nine Elms to Exeter, I believe.

I must have missed the picture of the café with the dustbins. It's really good and you are quite right - those bins do add a nice touch. I'm thinking that when my brake van body arrives, I could use it to make a harbour café serving tea/coffee to the local workforce.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

I'm getting the dapol pre weathered ones and the clean ones as well. I know what your saying about the grain run, its just I was using Castle Brewery as it give me a excuse to run them under a rule 1  :-[

The 22.43 from Wadebridge to Penmayne (arr. 22.56), calling at Cant Cove at 22.50, (the last train of the day to call there to pick up the guests of the "Tramway Inn" and the "Station Hotel"), was delayed from its normal 22.52 departure to Penmayne -- where the two Bulleid carriage set is stabled whilst the 57XX retires to the shed at 23.07 and the crew 'sign off' at 23.17 -- by the necessity to shunt off the tail load, an ex-LMSR short wheelbase brakevan, that, en route to North Cornwall from Birmingham, had been taken down the Burnham branch of the S&D by mistake after some scallyway removed the cardboard routing instructions from the side of the van. Retrieved the errant brakevan was then sent on to Wadebridge, today, where the yardmaster gave instructions that it be taken to Cant Cove ASAP so the body can be removed by the Cornish Loco. Pres. Soc., who have sold the body to a cafe owner in Trepol Bay to raise funds to restore the loco. shed. A suitable flat wagon has been stabled in Cant Cove loco. shed and the van's body will be placed on it by the yard crane, tomorrow, and the wagon and its load sent off on the 10.10 goods from Penmayne to Wadebridge, arr. 10.24, hauled by a Class 22. From Wadebridge it will be sent on to Trepol Bay via Port Perran. The wagon and its load will have previously been taken from Cant Cove (d. 09.03) to Penmayne (a. 09.07) behind an engine running on test Light Engine from Penmayne, rumoured to be a WR 82XXX that the Penmayne shedmaster has got his hands on! A society member took the photo. with all the shed lights turned on, and a tripod and long exposure:

It could be a barley special but where would it originate from? It could get to Exeter from Bristol, of course.
