Water column for me. The tower looks too overpowering.
I would second that.
The tower in the middle of the platfom gives me the creeps. A watertower would look better close to the loco-shed

It occurs to me that the tower is a bit over the top for a small cornish station.
With kind regards

Yes, the tower looks too big to me.

I like the water tower, there, too, Martin.

The Truro 4575, in BR Lined Green Late Crest livery, with two BR WR BR Standard Suburban coaches (a Composite and a Brake Second) still in BR Crimson, is now seen at Cant Cove, on the trial weekly (Mondays only) shoppers special service running from Tregonning to Newquay to Trepol Bay then on to Wadebridge, Cant Cove, and Penmayne from where the train returns to Wadebridge before travelling West to Truro via Trepol Bay and Port Perran.

I did not know there was a real "Seagull Coaches" in Blackpool, Derek. However, the ones to be seen (soon) in North and Western Cornwall are Bedford OBs and not the very nice Burlingham type you uploaded a photo. of, I'm sorry to say. I wonder if Oxford Models will make that type?


:hellosign: Chris (IP) The Burlingham Seagull is available from Oxford models but alas not in Seagull livery, maybe in future. The Bedford OB was a fine widely used small coach ideal for the Cornish roads. Sorry for the hijack Martin
     regards Derek.

Thanks, Derek. The Oxford Diecast Burlingham Sunsaloon Alexander Bluebird looks very nice but would they have appeared in Cornwall?

Personally I think the existing water crane looks more appropriate.  That tower looks too overbearing to me.  Just my opinion though!

 :hellosign: Yes Martin the tower does overpower the station IMO.

Chris(IP), It is quit feasible for a Scottish coach company to offer tours to Cornwall or private hire for a sports tournament.

Thanks, again, Derek. All the current Oxford Diecast Burlingham Sunsaloon models seem to be in the livery of Scottish operators. I'll have to think which one to go for (I like the Bluebird livery) or wait and hope other liveries will become available. I suppose the Perthshire RPS could bring a road coach down for their use in connection with a special train?

After about two weeks or so, I have this morning restarted work on Tregonning.
Helped no end by the damp, miserable weather outside.
Iím at the ďtidying and adding detailĒ stage and have been working on the back right corner
Iíve added a couple of trees and a grounded van body (which Iíve moved around a fair bit to get the location right).
Iíve also (thanks to Kevin - Phoenix) added some daisies and buttercups to the grass which, I think, works a treat. Thank you Kevin.


I need to add some soil etc around the large tree roots and Iím not convinced about that bit of fence to the right of the grounded van?
I also need to smooth down the join in the backscene.
Just for information, the rather messy building is the abandoned scout hut (oops-one of the conifers needs straightening).
As ever, comments, suggestions and criticisms welcomed.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

It looks good as is, but regarding the bit of white fence to the right of the grounded van - maybe try a piece of brown fence.  ???

Yes ineed, that would look just right.

Thank you for the lovely photograph, Martin.

Ok. Brown fencing it is

Iíve also been fiddling with the area near the Post Office and stables.
The gentleman with the two cases is hurrying to cross the road to the station to catch his train whilst the postmaster is struggling with a rather large parcel


And from the other direction

Iíve added a bus stop this afternoon.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

I have said it before but will say it again, some excellent modelling, (and photographs). Just a little bit of 'nit-picking' - the bus stop sign looks a bit 'chunky'. Sorry.
