Great stuff . You have a fine collection of locomotives there.
The coach in half brown and half chocolate and cream intrigues me ?
As does that thing that looks like a glass of beer standing on the platform ?

Many thanks :)


The coach is an Mk1 BCK in SLOA Pullman livery produced by the Bachmann collectors club. It runs as a support coach for mainline locomotives and is owned by the Steam Locomotive Opperators Association.

The beer glass was a lovely little surprise that arrived in the package with the coach, courtesy of @railsquid . A big thank you to him for it :) Though I need to double check and make sure it isn't supposed to continue to travel with the coach (which would be neat as well!).

Up to you :D I have a bunch of odd items like that I put in when sending stuff to people.

Though seeing it like that makes me think I could use something similar as a giant beerglass advertisment on an N-scale building  :hmmm:

Wow!! Fantastic!
Your loco collection is impressive. I also impressed about your layout too!! Are they paper kit building? If so look better than the plastic one!! Thank you for posting!

Best regards with my annoying moving signature.

Thanks, @dats475 , that's very kind of you :) Almost all of the buildings are metcalfe kits, which require little skill and produce great results. What you lose in three deminsionality is made up for in spades with the detailing. A few of the buildings are scratch built/kit bashed, but most of the credit goes to Nick Metcalfe for the designs ;)

As for the locos, I like anything steam and preBR, so I've built up a bit of a variety and I like it that way :)

Thanks for the compliments guys! I really enjoyed the coach's stay here in Avondale-by-the-Sea, and it is now on its way to Cornwall!

I shall be scouring the local beach so that I spot the coach when it is washed ashore !
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

We returned to Cornwall late yesterday after a short mini break to North Wales.
This morning we made a brief visit to Portreath beach just up the road and found this little chap washed up on the shoreline.  Seems to have made it across the Atlantic from the United States . I cleaned it up and sat it on the wall for a quick snap :

Apologies for the poor picture quality (it was wet and windy I'm afraid).
More pictures of the coach at work on Trepol Bay and Port Perran to follow.

Beautiful! Glad to see the glass bottle I set it afloat in managed to make it across in a timely manner ;)

I love the stone rising out of the sea behind it. So different from the water here!

Many thanks for the picture :) Can't wait to see it arrive at Trepol Bay and Port Perran!

It's 1963 and amid extreme secrecy a VERY futuristic carriage has been completed at Derby works and marketed as a "Taste of the Future".
Due to the reputation of their quality paintwork the Cornish Locomotive Preservation Group were chosen to finish the paintwork on the carriage. A great honour indeed.
The carriage was worked down to Port Perran over night  covered in tarpaulins) and delivered into the CLPG workshop (an old goods shed) for painting.
The carriage is seen here being shunted out of the workshop for the first time.
Certainly looks very impressive :

[Apologies that this area of Port Perran-2 is not finished].
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

The NGS Carriage has been undergoing running in trials around North Cornwall and is seen somewhat incongruously on a variety of workings :

At Port Perran as part of the 14.25 train (ex Truro) heading for Wadebridge (Apologies- just noticed that gravel storage bunker left on the platform by mistake !).

At Trepol Bay behind an ex GW railcar (courtesy Chris in Prague)

Behind an immaculate BR Class 5 forming the 15.30 arrival at Trepol Bay from Wadebridge. The train is seen rounding the curve under the harbour bridge towards the station.

Am I too late to add my name to the list?
It would be great to run any of the ngf rolling stock items on Northallerton at it's inaugral exhibition in August.
Do I need to pm Tank?

@Tank

Cheers
Kirky
Northallerton will make its next public appearance sometime after LOCKDOWN

AFAIK port perran is the last on the list, though I'm not sure what the follow-on arrangements are.
