Cant Cove's official photographer was able to record three WR "Prairie" tanks working through to Port Perran and beyond.

First, in immaculate BR Lined Green Late Crest livery, was one of the "Large Prairies", never common in Cornwall, No. 5198 (of 83E St Blazey) with a two-coach CLPG local members' special train of preserved Southern livery non-corridor stock, a highly unusual combination but the CLPG's preserved M7 in Southern livery was under repair.

Unusually, too, the brake end of the Brake Second was leading. (The reason for this is not known.) Both it and the Composite 1st / 3rd have been beautifully restored by the CLPG.

Soon after, a 4575 'Slope Tank' in BR Black Early Crest livery, 5539 (83E), appeared with a train formed of two Siphon Gs, a BR Crimson one carrying parcels and mail from Penmayne to Truro, picking up and dropping off parcels and letters at principal stations en route (allowing other trains to pass it), and an empty "Palethorpes" sausages van being worked to Truro where it will be added to a train to Birmingham.

Finally, a second immaculate "Prairie" in BR Lined Green Late Crest livery, 4575 Class No. 5531 (83E), appeared with three BR WR Chocolate & Cream BR Standard coaches on a special from Penmayne conveying members of the Cornish Fishermen's Wives Association who were attending their AGM in Port Perran.

The train being formed of an SK, CK, and BSK.

A young photographer has climbed up the small hill on the  shore side of Messrs Herman and Johns Foundry in order to get this distant photo of a very clean pannier leaving the china clay branch just to the North of Perran Beach Halt

If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Thank you very much, Martin.

That's a lovely photograph.  The weather here today has been dismal - it is good to have a reminder of sunshine.

With best wishes.

The evening 6.15 ex Tregonning Creamery milk tanks pass Port Perran on the way  to Truro where they will be attached to the evening express milk train to Kensington (usually Castle hauled).
It is unusual to see a M7 tank on shed here. No doubt she has deputised for the usual WR prarie on a local from Wadebridge.

That's splendid, Martin.  I'm glad that Tregonning Creamery is producing valuable traffic already.

The 'M7' really is a lovely little locomotive.  I'm an enthusiast for pre-Grouping and 'Big Four' steam, but (clean) lined BR black is surely a very attractive livery.  The BR 'Standard' '4MT' 2-6-4T looks wonderful, too.  I used to work with a chap who had been a fireman at Ayr shed.  He called them (and the Fairburn version) 'Passenger Pugs'. He said that they were good engines.

Thank you for a super photograph.

All the best.

John

Thanks for another excellent photo., Martin. Looking at photos. of the milk tankers in real life, they were almost black, so your heavily weathered ones are quite realistic. I only have one (lightly) factory weathered milk tanker so need to varyingly weather my others, especially the chassis (even if the tanks are kept clean). I also have a light blue one which needs its transfers removing before the milk tank is resprayed in "Castle Estates" light blue to make a change from the silver ones.

 Great Photos again Martin
Layout looks good as always. I really like the “story” around each Loco and train movement makes it feel like the real thing
Not sure its supposed to do that

I'm guessing that the appearance of the name, Tregonning Creamery, for the first time is significant, Martin. 8-)
