In the run-up to Christmas 1962, Cant Cove has seen much use of T9 4-4-0 30313 (72A) for crew (re)training between Wadebridge and Penmayne. Here it is seen on an extra goods, formed of two Continental Ferry Vans, an FS INTERFRIGO and a DB van, which it took over at Wadebridge, plus a BR ShocVan which had been worked up from Trepol Bay on a local passenger train.

That T9 looks so at home in North Cornwall.
Good to see the CLPG van sitting in the background there too.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Thank you, Martin. The T9 4-4-0 30313 (72A) crews then progress to longer and heavier goods trains. Here is another pre-Christmas special goods for Cant Cove and Trevelver Castle. Fortunately, there are the Summer only 'Cant Cove shuttle' paths free.











The last few vans were worked up from Port Perran and Trepol Bay.

That 'Greyhound' looks super, Chris!

The Table-Top Railway is a train set trying and failing to be a model railway.

I believe that train sets and model railways are fun.

Many thanks, John, for helping to make it possible. There are more photos. to come of the 'Greyhound', including working a typical North Cornwall passenger train.
