The Wadebridge yardmaster has been informed that three 7-plank wagons and two covered vans (BR Standard and ER types) have been overhauled and repainted in undercoat and are ready to be collected for transport to Wadebridge and then Trepol Bay and Port Perran.



A range of Castle Brewery and Castle Estates vans and wagons including a LWB flat wagon have also been completed and will be collected for transport to Wadebridge and then Claverdon, Port Perran, Trepol Bay and Weaver Cove, although the LWB wagon for the WR Birmingham area still needs its axleboxes painted.

Thanks, Paddy. It's very much practice makes perfect and having the smallest paint brushes possible; plus, being short-sighted, with my glasses off I can focus in very well. Painting in batches (one colour at a time) enables a lot of models to be painted over a few days.

The first two of a planned three with identical removable loads of wood LWB flat wagons in Castle Estates livery:

(From left, the prototype for Cant Cove, the second for through trains to Birmingham (WR) via Claverdon -- axle boxes need repainting in gloss yellow):



The third will be for Port Perran as there is a saw mill there (tree trunks are sent from the Castle Estates and cut timber returns there or is sold elsewhere by the Castle Estates).

I will have other similar wagons in Castle Estates livery but with different timber loads.

Yellow axleboxes (re)painted all all Peco LWB wagons and a van. I hope that they will be dry, tomorrow, and the Plate wagon for Claverdon can then be despatched.

The latest billboard, this one for the North Cornwall Pasty Co., of Penmayne, a 2MM Scale vanside version will also be produced as a transfer, along with Castle Estates, Castle Brewery, Cornish Pixie Ice Cream, and Summer Lightning (Headland Brewery, Trepol Bay) eventually.

Here's the 2MM Scale billboards and vansides, so far for Trepol Bay and Cant Cove:



Now that I have all the scenery pieces, tomorrow, I will mark out where everything should go on the baseboard for Cant Cove prior to cutting the pieces and gluing them in place. Then will follow placing the track in place marking where holes need to be drilled for wiring and the wiring under the board. Final tracklaying will follow but maybe won't be complete until Easter.

I do know (and have enjoyed on draught and in bottle -- available in Prague) the 'original' "Summer Lightning"; however, back in the 1960s, the Headland Brewery, Trepol Bay, Cornwall, was the first to brew a special light, crisp golden ale with that name. 8-) It is rumoured that the Head Brewer of the excellent Hopback Brewery remembers his father enjoying the Headland Brewery's excellent ales on a summer holiday. 8-)

Summer Lightning has made it to Prague? I bet that sorts out the men from the boys at stag parties.

Only in bottles and it was available from Tesco's Home Delivery Service along with a few other bottled British beers. Some are also available from other importing retail outlets.

The Q1 at Trepol Bay is being prepared as we speak.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.
