Superb detailing, Martin :goggleeyes:
At first glance I thought Larry Poldory had a green mohican hair style ;)
It might well suit him.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Wonderful to see Tregonning again, Martin.

These little improvements are terrific.

And, yes, I agree that the mechanical horse looks super there; a clever bit of reversing.

Thank you for the splendid photographs.

Best wishes.

Seconded! Very nice work. I wish you and the layout all success at the show. I think I have a model of Bertie somewhere, too.

All ready for the start of day two at Bodmin show today.
There appears to be some very interesting stock traversing the branch this morning.

If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Super photograph, thank you, Martin.

That'll be the through train from Edinburgh via the Waverley Route.  I'm sure I heard it on the climb to Falahill Summit.

I hope you have a supremely spifferoo day in Bodmin.

Best wishes.

John

Thank you for the photo., Martin. I think you have achieved a perfect combination of trees and backscene.

Indeed a very interesting rake of beautifully restored LNER teak coaches behind a local WR pannier tank. Could these be the two tarpaulin-covered coaches which arrived in Wadebridge Yard in an express goods from London and were booked on the next goods to Truro via Trepol Bay, where they were 'ticketed' for attention by fitters from the harbourside wagon works? Are the ones which had generated rumours about their identity circulating among local railway enthusiasts? Bill Truscott, the Yardmaster, Wadebridge, was saying nothing and neither were the local signalmen: Sandy Penduckett and Neamiah Treskerby. However, (illegal) bets as to their identity, purpose, and ownership were rumoured to be taken at "The Withered Bough" public house to which Jago Pascoe and Morwenna Pascoe, the Landlord and Landlady, were said to be turning a 'blind eye'. Arthur Angove, the Shedmaster, Wadebridge, remains confident he knows but says he, too, has been sworn to secrecy! Is there a connection between Yorkshireman Sir George Widgeon III and his friends Lord and Lady Trevarnon of Tregonning House? The pannier's Wadebridge crew, driver Eddie Bligh and his young fireman Davie Thomas together with the guard are saying nothing either.

Really good to see you and Stephanie yesterday.
I may well take you up on your offer of a cuppa soon.

Did I miss something? I can't find any further reference to 'THE NEW LOCO'. What was/is it?

I am an English citizen and I refuse to be kept in the dark! I have a right to know! :veryangry:

Thank you Chris. Funnily enough I'd looked here and on the Wadebridge thread. THEN I thought about the Trepol thread. Sadly, that didn't occur to me until AFTER I posted my 'livid from Reading' post.  :-[

I humbly and unreservedly apologise.  :-[ :-[

Dashed fine new loco though. Well done, Martin. :thumbsup:

It's because Martin has so many threads here that he must have enough to carpet the entire Forum!

Fair play to the man! :D
