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.
