Thank you, but not my own work. The two lovely weathered wooden-bodied ones were bought on eBay at a bargain price from the person who had painted them whilst the 21t was a Dapol factory weathered one of a pair reweathered by Pete of this forum to look more realistic.

After nearly two years' wait, it seems that by March, at the latest, the 372-331 Graham Farish BR Standard Class 3MT Tank 82020 BR Plain Green L/C (£106.99 at Kernow MRC) will be available. I have long wanted one in this livery to add to my late BR WR North Cornwall steam fleet as there were several in this livery that ran in the area. Mine will be renumbered to 82040 (83D).

Also due about then are the GF Thompson coaches, at least one of which ran in North Cornwall plus, in our 'Alternative Cornwall', would have worked through in Summer Saturday holidaymakers' specials from the North. At first only two in two livery variants, the LNER livery and BR Crimson & Cream (which I will order) will be available: 376-201 Graham Farish Thompson 1st Class Corridor BR Crimson & Cream £35.95, 376-226 Graham Farish Thompson Composite Corridor BR Crimson & Cream £35.95 (Kernow MRC prices) will be my order. Being a very upmarket resort, Penmayne attracts a lot of 1st Class passengers, so an FK and a CK to mix with older Gresley design coaches will be very appropriate! 8-)

Dapol has announced the next batch of Class 52 Western Diesels - expected end of 3rd Quarter 2020. Interesting for me is:  2D-003-015 Dapol Class 52 Western Diesel Loco D1043 "Western Duke" BR Chromatic Blue £110.95.

Hi Chris ( @Chris in Prague )

I do believe the Thompson porthole stock also ended up on breakdown trains later in life...

I didn't know that, Paddy. However, I won't be using the ones which I will buy for that purpose. Eventually, there should be four: Brake Third (Second), Composite Corridor, First Corridor, and Third Corridor. A rake of these in BR Crimson & Cream will look very good, I think. However, I look forward to them being available, later, in BR Lined Maroon livery. I'd like to model Thompson SK to diagram 329 in BR Lined Maroon (?) behind BR Standard 4MT 80041 and a BR Lined Maroon painted Bulleid BCK on a Padstow - Exeter train on 22nd August 1964. Alas, there are still no RTR Bulleid BCKs, a very puzzling omission as almost every SR branchline could have one!

It might be possible to model Observation Saloon Sc1999, a former inspection saloon converted from Thompson FK 1531?

Thanks, Derek. I had been after a plain BR Green "Warship" for a while. This one was a bargain and is ex-set, the "CRE", I think; I already have the two BR Chocolate & Cream coaches from the same set. More will be coming along very soon. I have the details in my head and the very last couple parts already written.

“And we’re Georgie’s target, aren’t we?” asked Jeremy.

The Doctor’s granddaughter nodded. “Georgie’s telling them that we’re all to be rounded up and taken to the room next to where the Soviets are dining. He’s told them that Sylvia’s reservation deposit cheque has bounced and we won’t be released until we come up with the payment, in cash, in full. They’re nodding and checking their weapons.”

“My cheque bounced! What nonsense!” exclaimed Sylvia. “There’s more than enough in my bank account!”

“Shh, we know that it’s only an excuse, my dear,” soothed Jeremy, as he checked his watch.

“Okay,” reported Susan. “Georgie’s leading them along the service corridor in the direction of the nearest entrance to us. Eddie’s gone into the room where the Russians are. Now, Georgie and his men have stopped. They’re waiting in the corridor opposite.”

“Where’s Poldory, Sally Salcombe and Giles, Susan. Can you see them, Susan?”

She nodded. “Yes, Jeremy. Poldory and Sally are still in the washing-up area. Giles is still by the cigarette machine close to where the Soviets are dining but, for now, out of their sight around the corner. Eddie, Georgie and the other gang members show no signs of going after them.”

“No doubt they will get to them immediately after rounding us all up!”

“I’m afraid so, Richard,” stated Jeremy. “The Twins have already sold us to the Soviets. Right, you’ll lead the girls out of here through the opposite exit then through the casino and out of the main entrance, now, and down the street to the agreed rendezvous point. Tom, you’ll follow after all the others.”

They nodded and checked inside their jackets.

“What about Sofi, Fermin, Rae Anne, Amy and Lana, and Catala?”

“Don’t worry, Tom, I’ve not forgotten them. Sylvie and Eli, you go over to them, now. You know them best. Get them out the same way, immediately after our girls. Tell them that they will miss a special surprise if they’re not outside in a couple of minutes! Tom, remember, you’re the rearguard!”

“Some special surprise!” exclaimed Tom.

“And if someone tries to stop us leaving?” asked Richard. “The doorman, for instance?”

“You all know what to do,” replied Jeremy. “Now, go. Leave in ones and twos as unobtrusively as possible but quickly! We haven’t much time!”

“We will do what is ordered and at every command, we will be ready!” chorused the two men plus Sophie, Sylvia and Eli via the white earbuds. After a final visual check, Susan quickly closed and put away her powder compact in her black and white Mary Quant handbag before hanging it on her shoulder. Sophie picked up her large, slim handbag, too, as they rose to leave the table.

“We’re off to join Giles,” stated Sophie.

“Stay safe,” added Susan.

“Do take care, darling,” whispered Sylvia after Jeremy as she left the tables with Eli.

“Good luck, everyone,” wished Jeremy. “I’ll be with Rule waiting for Snapper. Let’s hope he turns up, very soon! Time’s not in our side.”

After some surprise expressed by their friends, Sylvia and Eli managed to persuade Sofi, Fermin, Rae Anne, Amy, and Lana, to leave with them. Catala, who was still waiting for Christian to return, took a lot more persuasion but Eli was a very persuasive speaker, in any language. Meanwhile, Richard had lead Angela with Belinda, followed by Suzi, Jenny, and Amanda out. Phil Courtenay and Andy Tolverne, who had been given the task of looking after them, followed alertly behind. Once through the side door and into the rear corridor which led to the casino, Richard, instructed them to remain in the two groups, the girls to keep up with him and Phil with Andy following after the second group as their rear guard. Richard, closely followed by Angela with Belinda, immediately set off at normal walking pace. Once down the corridor and through the door into the casino, Phil moved off with Suzi, Jenny, and Amanda. Andy followed close behind. As they approached the door into the casino, Sylvia and Eli led the excited Sofi, Fermin, Rae Anne, Amy, and Lana, together with the unhappy Catala, into the corridor with Tom Carew bringing up the rear and looking all around very carefully. Quickly, Sylvia and Eli split them into two groups, Eli taking Amy, Lana, and Catala down the corridor, first, whilst Sylvia followed after them with Sofi, Fermin, and Rae Anne. Tom Carew remained and, taking a tube out of his jacket pocket, quickly squirted some of its contents into the keyhole of the door through which they had come then that of the firedoor at the opposite end of the corridor. All the time the men, plus Sylvia and Eli, listened to their tiny white earbuds for any news about the movements of Eddie, Georgie and the gang members with them. There was none. Once Sylvia with Sofi, Fermin, and Rae Anne had passed through the door into the casino, Tom squirted the last of the tube’s contents into the keyhole of the door and closed it firmly behind him. The casino was full, and the various groups had to thread their way past the tables and gamblers. Passing a waste bin, Tom unobtrusively dropped the empty tube into it. Richard had already lead Angela with Belinda, followed by Suzi, Jenny, and Amanda out of the casino and out towards the entrance. Phil Courtenay and Andy Tolverne were close behind them. As Richard, Angela and Belinda got to the entrance, two massive doormen appeared from either side blocking their way.

I've, finally, got around to ordering some cars from Hattons for the 1960s Continental Motorail service that runs with the West Porthsea Quay - Regleun train ferry service:

1 * Oxford Diecast NHI001 Hillman Imp willow green @ £4.00 each = £4.00

1 * Oxford Diecast NMGB003 MGB Roadster British Racing Green @ £4.00 each = £4.00

1 * Oxford Diecast NMN001 Austin Mini in Tartan Red with Union Jack roof @ £4.00 each = £4.00

1 * Oxford Rail OR148CPK001 Pack of four assorted 1960s cars for Carflat wagons @ £12.00 each = £12.00

That gives 7 extra cars to ass to those I already have for various characters, which should be enough.

Hi Chris,

Will make a note of what you have car wise and looking forward to see who drives what.

I've only got the Trevelver's? cream/maroon jag at the moment but am sure the car fleet will increase over time.

The Hillman Imp brings back memories. We had a friend who was a girl rather than a girlfriend. She was 18 and we were 4 lads aged between 16 and 17 and couldn't drive yet. She was happy to drive us around all the time but we were all 6ft tall so amusingly cramped looking back although probably not at the time  :). Great days.

Cheers Chris (weave)  :beers:

Hi Chris ( @Chris in Prague )

Good luck with the Gunpowder van - it is a lovely wee model.  Look forward to seeing the results!

Those OD cars are amazing value.

Kind regards

Thank you, Paddy. It won't get spraypainted until the summer. The cars are indeed great value.
