Thank you very much, Chris, for those splendid photographs of Cant Cove.

And that rather sad one of D6340 looking distinctly unloved.

Best wishes.

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.

Hi Chris (and Martin),

Nice pics. Hope to go to the car model shop tomorrow and see what they've got but if they don't have the jag will get one online for the Trevelver's pre Christmas Weekend across the water.

Was just wondering if Lord and Lady Trevelver would be amused or not that your station forklift has a rather similar colour scheme to their beautiful car?  :D.

Great stuff.

Cheers Chris (weave)  :beers:

Thank you, John. The BR SR Green BR Standard coach looks the worse for wear, too. When not in use, the two School train coaches stood in a siding in the station.

The choice of BR crimson and cream for their new Jaguar may well have been deliberate! 8-)

The brand new heavy-duty forklift is [an Oxford Models NSDF001] a Shelvoke & Drewry Freightlifter British Rail (Western) of which Cant Cove's stationmaster, Keneder Treskerby, is very proud.

Here it is seen loading a "Castle Estates" lorry with some tarpaulin-covered goods.

Regarding the recently arrived, 'on loan' BR lined black livery 'Large Prairie', here is a photo. of an identical model, clearly showing its identity as No. 8102.

Thanks, Chris (Weave) and Martin for planning to purchase an identical Jaguar MkIX in cream/Imperial maroon livery. As a new car, it will need to be 'run in' and some local trips to Trepol Bay will be required before Lord and Lady Trevelver set off to drive abroad after travelling by train ferry, of course.

Here is a close-up of No. 8102 at Cant Cove, running light engine, on a crew (re)training run from St Blazey after the GWS (Bodmin) painters had repainted the bufferbeams red and the buffers in their 'trademark' silver.



Showing its number, 8102, clearly in this close-up.

Splendid loco Chris.  Those early Farish engines have a charm all their own.

They do indeed and prices seem to have fallen for even ones in very good condition. With the addition of smokebox numberplates, new metal cabside number plates, vacuum hoses and loco. lamps (all of which this one will get, eventually) they can become very nice models indeed and have a ruggedness which far more recent and far more expensive loco. models lack.

Cant Cove's official photographer, John Prynne, Chief Accountant of the "Castle Estates", has been up in Craig Avery's biplane, again, and took some photos. of No. 8102 (seen earlier at Trepol Bay on the same train) with a parcels train. One goods van was left at Wadebridge where a BR Shoc-Van and an ex-SR CCT were added to the SR ex-SR Bogie B BY van and a WR BR Standard GUV.







[The vehicles are: rare Minitrix BR Brown 'Shoc Van', Dapol BR SR Green CCT NB-022 S239S, GF 374-631 Bogie B luggage Van BR (SR) Green S204S, and GF 374-130 Mk1 GUV General Utility Van BR Maroon W86148, these last two having worked through from Trepol Bay and Truro, respectively.]
