One of the regular Summer 1960 duties of No. 7806 "Cockington Manor" is take through train portions between Wadebridge and Penmayne as well as between Bodmin Road and Penmayne. In both cases, portions for Trepol Bay and Port Perran are detached or added at Wadebridge.

Here we see "Cockington Manor", at Cant Cove (stops on special request only), at the head of the 7:15 pm (Fridays Only) from Newcastle, scheduled arrival and departure, Wadebridge, 5:38 / 5:41 am, to Penmayne, formed of a smart rake of BR Crimson & Cream ER stock (all Thompsons, apart from the Buffet car). A Gresley SK and BCK were detached at Wadebridge for Trepol Bay. Being an upmarket resort, much favoured by Northern industrialists and their families, the Penmayne portion (arrival 5.50 am) boasts a higher percentage of 1st Class compartments.

[There seems to be no close-up of the CK. Sorry. My four came from RAILS of Sheffiels who report that: "Graham Farish N Gauge
LNER Thompson Coaches are • Selling Fast • Limited Stock Remaining (Sold out at Bachmann)". 376-201 is the ex-LNER Thompson First Corridor in BR Crimson & Cream, 376-226 is the ex-LNER Thompson Composite Corridor in BR Crimson & Cream, 376-251 is the ex-LNER Thompson Second (ex-Third) Corridor in BR Crimson & Cream and 376-276 is the ex-LNER Thompson Brake Second (ex-Third) Corridor in BR Crimson & Cream. They are beautiful models but not cheap at £35.65 each!]. A new Dapol 2P-011-352 N Gauge Gresley Buffet E9124E in BR Crimson & Cream is in the middle. Thompson and Gresley design coaches were mixed together in ER trains the same way that Hawksworth and Collett design coaches were in WR trains.]

Thanks, Mike, you too. Originally the loco. was Dapol 2S-001-000 7810 "Draycott Manor" BR Lined Green Late Crest. After DCC fitting by Fouglass at Wickness Models, a new set of plates was applied for me by my friend, Tony, and welcome "Cockington Manor", to be seen, again, on a special parcels train from Penmayne.

Thank you, Martin. I'll photograph the Thompson CK and SK with the matching NGS Thompson BG.

Thanks, Derek. I'll photograph the Thompson CK (which I missed a close-up of) and the SK with the matching NGS Thompson BG.

I'm looking forward to the BR Lined Maroon Thompsons (next year?) as there is a photo. of BR Standard 4MT 80041 with a BR Lined Maroon Bulleid BCK and a Thompson SK to diagram 329 in BR Lined Maroon (?) on the 3.10 pm Padstow - Exeter train on 22nd August 1964.

Thank you for these excellent photographs, Chris.

No. 7806 looks splendid.

The Thompson carriages are distinctive, and the crimson and cream livery suits them well.

Best wishes.

I do agree they do look well. I was very impressed when I received mine, I personally think they are some of the best British coaches available. They also look well when mixed with maroon Gresleys too.

Thanks, Derek. I'm fine and all is well. I'm busy on a very time-consuming but enjoyable (for me) non-model railway related project so have not been posting recently but will do so. I hope that all is well with you and all who read about Cant Cove.
