Thanks, Martin. I think I can 'tidy up' the white around the central red line a bit in daylight and, as you write, with a steady hand!

The far right-hand van needs some repainting as the area where the GW logo was shows through. (I didn't paint a patch of dark grey undercoat on it as I had with the other vans).

The first of my three rakes of duplicate numbered wagons on eBay has a bidder. (I need to make room for my new wagons!)

Hi Jon,

Many thanks. Inbetween academic work I hope to get a few little jobs done.

A lot of secondhand wagons arrived today; some are for repainting in Castle Estates livery (some will be weathered, too), such simple painting is always relaxing.

I'm sure that little jobs will be done fairly regularly. Do keep the pictures flowing.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Thanks, Martin. I will do so. Unfortunately, I'm still waiting for some wagons, including the LMSR short wheelbase brake van for the beach cafe at Trepol Bay. I hope that it will arrive, next week. The Castle Brewery covered van is ready and waiting to be sent off with the brakevan body on a flat wagon to 'Wadebridge' for onward transfer to Port Perran and Trepol Bay. The yardmaster at Wadebridge will telephone his counterpart at Trepol Bay to have a crane and a lorry ready to transport the brakevan body to its final location!

Thank you. No hurry because as you know the staff at Port perran will be away for a few days next week.

Yes, Martin, it will take a week to get a suitable crane to Trepol Bay to offload the brakevan body, the Wadebridge yardmaster has since been informed so the two wagons won't leave, now, until the Friday goods to Wadebridge from Penmayne, calling at Cant Cove.

My landlord is eager to buy some insulation board and try out cutting, shaping and gluing a section on the baseboard so I may have some progress on that earlier than I expected! The first layer forming the trackbed would be a very good start. It stretches from the beach along the edge of the River Camel to the backscene with cutouts for Cant Cove itself and the hidden fiddle sidings.

Looking forward to seeing this, and good news that it will be sooner  than expected. Academic Work will have to take a back seat (only joking).

It should be next week that we will go, one morning, to buy a trial piece and try out the cutting device, Martin. 8-)
