84C Truro shed have confirmed the arrival of a loco. on loan from 83C Westbury ready for the 1963 Christmas and New Year season special trains. It has been loaned to work Truro-Wadebridge-Penmayne specials. Local WR loco. crew are undergoing 'refresher' course training. Truro has not had one of its class allocated since 1956 but St Blazey had one as recently as December 1960. Therefore, it was decided to allocate it to Truro although it will be seen anywhere between Truro, Newquay, Wadebridge and Penmayne.

On the subject of more personal transport, the Jaguar MkIX in cream/Imperial maroon livery for Lord and Lady Trevelver's Continental jaunts has arrived at Cant Cove on a tarpaulin-covered flat wagon and has been unloaded and driven to Trevelver Castle.

The usual Christmas and New Year running of the four through coaches which make up the CIWL Pullman "Star of the West" / 'L'etoile de l'Ouest', Brittany - Cornwall (via the West Porthsea Quay - Regleun train ferry) train has been confirmed. However, timings are subject to delays caused by bad weather in the Narrow Sea.

[The four coaches are: LIMA CIWL Sleeping Car 4787, LIMA 320333 Blue and White CIWL Pullman 4161, LIMA 320304 Blue CIWL Dining Car 3360, and LIMA Blue CIWL Voiture Salon 4162.]

The 4 CIWL coaches are accompanied from West Porthsea Quay by a BR SR Green BR Standard BCK specially modified at Eastleigh Works with dual electric and steam heating and dual air and vacuum brakes. The train is hauled by one of two local BRC&W Co. Sulzer Type 3s.

They are only 'dour' if there is (as is often the case) a strike in France. 8-)

I don't know where you got your shed codes Chris, but according to my book of Western Region sheds and a web database, Truro is 83F and Westbury is 82D. 83Cis Exeter and 84C is Banbury

Regards,

Alex

As you know, Alex, BR shedcodes changed over the years. This year (2019) we're in 1963 and in November. Truro changed from 83F (8/50 on) to 84C 9/63. Westbury 82D (8/50) changed to 83C 10/63. The changes were associated with regional boundary changes. Banbury changed from 84C to the LMR's 2D 9/63. Exeter 83C closed 10/63.

So....the mystery locomotive is 8102 on loan from Westbury shed to the North Cornwall area.
Here she is heading a short parcel train through Trepol Bay en-route to Wadebridge and Penmayne.

And here is a close up of a very clean locomotive :

Many thanks Chris (IP). She certainly looks good.
My only slight concern - 8102 or 6102?
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Thanks, Martin, for another lovely pair of photos. You had a nice sunny day. I have puzzled over whether the number is 6102 or 8102 but have found online photos. of the same model and it is clearly No. 8102. There were detail differences between the 31xx, 41xx, 61xx and 81xx classes but Graham Farish disregarded those producing its 'Large Prairies' numbered as all 4 classes.

I fo hope that I will have time and sunshine to take photos. of No. 8102 at Cant Cove heading the same short parcel train from Truro, Trpol Bay, and Wadebridge on its way to Penmayne. (I have successfully found my No. 8102.)

I hope that yours is running smoothly. Considering its age, the model is in very fine cosmetic condition with the possible exception of the BR Crest and numberplate. (These early models all lacked smokebox numberplates but I have ordered a replacement set of plates for the new identity of BR Lined Black Early Crest No. 5193 (83E) (red numberplates), for next year when it is detailed.

8102 it is then.
Once I see a photo of your locomotive, I may paint the buffers accordingly.
And as for a nice sunny day....Iím afraid itís all down to the indoor lighting.
Itís been pouring here since 10.30 this morning. In fact, Iíve had enough of rain for a bit.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

BRC&W Co. Type 3 D6577 recently seen at Trepol Bay was photographed on a goods train returning empties from Penmayne to Wadebridge where part will go on on the WR mainline via Bodmin Road and the remainder via the SR mainline.







Behind the loco. is an SR 'Tarpaulin' Ferry Wagon with timber.



Behind it were some empty coal wagons.







Then came some empty PO goods vans and wagons.











A rather grimy BR Standard brake van brought up the rear.

The Jaguar MkIX in cream/Imperial maroon livery for Lord and Lady Trevelver's Continental jaunts has arrived at Cant Cove on a flat wagon and has had its tarpaulin removed prior to being unloaded and driven to Trevelver Castle. The local Z Class No. 30956 has placed the wagon in the goods bay platform.

The D63xx with the daily schools train seen arriving at Trepol Bay :

If it looks right then it most probably is right.
