In the run-up to Christmas 1962, Cant Cove has seen much use of T9 4-4-0 30313 (72A) for crew (re)training between Wadebridge and Penmayne. Here it is seen on an extra goods, formed of two Continental Ferry Vans, an FS INTERFRIGO and a DB van, which it took over at Wadebridge, plus a BR ShocVan which had been worked up from Trepol Bay on a local passenger train.

That T9 looks so at home in North Cornwall.
Good to see the CLPG van sitting in the background there too.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Thank you, Martin. The T9 4-4-0 30313 (72A) crews then progress to longer and heavier goods trains. Here is another pre-Christmas special goods for Cant Cove and Trevelver Castle. Fortunately, there are the Summer only 'Cant Cove shuttle' paths free.











The last few vans were worked up from Port Perran and Trepol Bay.

That 'Greyhound' looks super, Chris!

The Table-Top Railway is an attempt to create, in British 'N' gauge,  a 'semi-scenic' railway in the old-fashioned style, reminiscent of the layouts of the 1920s to the 1950s.

Many thanks, John, for helping to make it possible. There are more photos. to come of the 'Greyhound', including working a typical North Cornwall passenger train.

The Association for the Promotion of Cornwall's Railways has been hosting a delegation from South Devon, including senior representatives of the Sharkham Wagon Works and, after much persuasion, managed to include George Enderby, the shy engineering genius who came up with the original design concept for the 15ft. Extra-Long Wheelbase goods stock which is proving such a success on the West Country "Fast Freight Network" (the now unknown, outside the SW, a predecessor to BR's much later "Speedlink" concept), in the arrangements.

Preserved T9 4-4-0 30313 (72A) was specifically requested to haul the trains of brand new vans between Wadebridge and Penmayne. Unfortunately, because of their intensive use, it was not possible to obtain vans in every livery. The first train was formed of 15ft. Extra-Long Wheelbase insulated vans which had been through Penmayne's automated carriage washing plant, (installed by BR WR at Lady Trevelver's insistence).





From left to right the vans are in the PO livery of the following:
"Creech Brewery" purple-red, from Somerset
the dark green livery of vans (and containers) carrying fresh fruit and vegetables supplied by Messrs Prisk & Jones (Fruit & Vegetable Wholesalers), Trepol Bay,
"North Cornwall Pasty Co." satin orange,
"Castle Brewery" dark blue, and
"Castle Estates" light blue

(There are no insulated vans in "Sam's Cider" apple green or "Headland Brewery" black and gold flash.)





After using the turntable at Penmayne, the T9 returned with a train of 15ft. Extra-Long Wheelbase pallet vans with the exhibition finish "Castle Brewery" dark blue van in the lead and the similarly finished "Headland Brewery" van at the end.







One of the refurbished ex-North Eastern Railway bogie vans owned by the "North Cornwall Pasty Co." used for the bulk distribution of its products to major regional centres, such as Plymouth, Exeter and London, and painted in its satin orange livery, was also included in lieu of a pallet van.



One of the local, specially liveried, BR WR RMBs then followed, conveying the party back to Trepol Bay for a visit to the harbourside wagon works before adjourning to the award-winning restaurant of the "Station Hotel", some of whose staff were crewing the Mini Buffet on the return journey after their colleagues from "The Station Hotel", Cant Cove, who had catered on the outward journey, handed over to them at Penmayne.



A BR Standard brake van brought up the rear.

Sorry to hear that. I hope you're up and running soon.
You know you're getting older when your mind makes commitments your body can't meet.

Would that be ordinary 'flu or the much worse 'man 'flu'? Whichever, put a squirt of lemon juice and a teaspoon of honey in a mug with hot water and drink whist taking two Paracetamol - much cheaper than shop bought remedies!  :thumbsup:

The layout can do without you for a few days!
