I'm now thinking that I will make my own inspection pit (as I did on my original N Gauge layout) as I think it will look much better.

Yes, fab work Chris.

Just to let you know the parcel arrived safely today (quicker than expected) and the farmyard birds and animals will be perfect for my layout.  Many, many thanks, much appreciated.  I'm sure Mr PP (Martin) will write later when he's home from work.

The train arriving at platforms 3, 4 and 5 has come in sideways

Many thanks, Jon. I'm now trying to construct a plasticard base for the loco. shed tht will hide the join between the walls and the ground. (Photos tomorrow.)

That's great news that the parcel arrived so quickly and safely. I look forward to seeing the farmyard animals on your layout (and the wagons arriving at Port Perran -- from 'Wadebridge' and then being taken to Trepol Bay!)

Looking forward to seeing the inspection pit eventually.
As Mrs PP said, parcel arrived - no doubt you will see my Trepol Bay thread on this subject.
Many, many Thanks.
Martin
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

My great pleasure, Martin. I've decided to build my inspection pit for the loco. shed rather than use the Peco one.

Please, post your two excellent photos of the new arrivals at Port Perran, here, too, Martin.

Chris has very kindly provided me with two beautifully detailed wagons (an open wagon with barrels of ale and an ex NE Brake Van) for Port Perran & Trepol Bay.
The pictures below show first a Class 22 with the two wagons (plus WR horsebox) about to depart Port Perran for Trepol Bay and also the very excellent detail that Chris has achieved :


Many thanks Chris, excellent work indeed and they do look really good at Port Perran.

Many thanks, Martin. I'm delighted to see them arriving at Port Peran and look forward, in due course, to seeing them arrive at Trepol Bay. The open wagon is an ex-SR one painted in the Castle Brewery livery and is an exact duplicate of one I have at Cant Cove so we can run 'through' trains between our two Cornish layouts. (Eventually, I will make logos on boards to fix on the sides of the Castle Brewery wagons.)

The brake van is similar to the ex-LNER vans allocated to Wadebridge for use on the Wenfordbridge branch -- I have posted details earlier in this thread. I began with a handpainted (BR Early Grey) one then this (BR Early Bauxite) van for Martin for Trepol Bay (as a birthday present for him) and am making one for myself which is only in the spraypainted stage with matt black underframe only done. Detailing will follow as time allows.

A corner of the loco. shed workshop showing the first aid box added. (There is a speck of dirt that had to be brushed off after I saw this photo.)

I decided to make a cardboard mask for spraypainting wagons with, in this case, Halford's Red Plastic Undercoat (BR Early Bauxite) without spraypainting the chassis, buffers and couplings! Of course, the colour is NOT pink; that is just due to the lighting. 8-)



This will be a similar ex-LNER brake van (as allocated to Wadebridge) as transferred to Trepol Bay (as shown above).

Work proceeds on the base for Cant Cove loco. shed. The idea is that the base and building will all be one unit, recessed as required into the layer of insulation board overlying the baseboard surface. (The roofs will be removable to allow future LED lighting to be fitted. The inspection pit will be built into the insulation board. I plan to light that, too, using fibre optic cables?)

Are you sure that brake van isn't pink Chris ?
Only joking !
