There has been much pre-Christmas activity at Cant Cove. However, Cant Cove's official photographer is waiting to get his films developed and printed of the trains. These include a variety of special, goods, parcels, and passenger trains, local, regional and long-distance. [I'm still very busy until just before Christmas.]

As Martin guessed, back in October, a 38xx was indeed planned and the identity decided (3862 which was at Laira from 12/53-6/62) and a suitable Dapol model, Class 2884 2-8-0 2S-009-007 3822 in BR Black Late Crest livery, has been ordered but it won't be here for a while it, first, it had to go to Douglas, at Wickness, for testing and DCC fitting, then it will go for renumbering, next month). However, the ex-GWR 2-8-0s were still fairly common in 1962; Plymouth Laira still having 2899, 3849, and 3862, that year, but lost them all by the autumn of 1962; 3849 (5/62-7/62) being the very last. No. 3862 will be preserved by the GWS (Bodmin) after withdrawal and should prove a very popular addition.

(No. 2887, 83B (Taunton) was used, along with 34002 "Salisbury", 83D (Exmouth Junction), on the 3rd May 1964 R.C.T.S. / Plymouth Railway Circle, "The Cornubian", Exeter St Davids - Plymouth and return.)
