   A very good morning Martin & John, many thanks. The 2884 from Dapol via Rails of Sheffield has been run in & tested through the 4 point & crossovers, so far very pleased with her. A little bit of research reveals she was employed on heavy freight from 1939 until being withdrawn in 1962, would she have crossed the Tamar, ?. No doubt a longer video soon.
stay safe regards Derek.

The 28xx 2-8-0s were rare in Cornwall but not completely unknown. There are several photographs around showing them this side of the Tamar.
They certainly weren’t common though, probably due to the fact that freight traffic was lighter than elsewhere on the network and so local engines eg Halls, Granges and praries could cope.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

 A very good Evening all, a few photos to share & as always comments are welcome.
   First off the interesting idea from Chris (IP), many thanks I think I like it. Excuse the modern traction on their leg stretch & other assorted cable's. Just added a short curve & a "6" turnout & Bob's your uncle, the level crossing is triple again just out of shot to the left
.

  Other track related shows the sections of "Tomix" track which came with the "100 Shinkansen set" . Looks good & joins easily to the special Kato connector,
 :hmmm: definitely worth further investigation.


More later, please take care
  & stay safe regards Derek
