I have no intention of becoming a trolley dolly as I haven't got the legs for it and the beard might put customers off their food ::)

Just got a look at the BP in action, there Mick. Needless to say it's made me day.  :beers:

I've got the same cement wagons (I picked them up in Skipton on that Wigan trip in2014) - except you've got like, a million more of them  ;D

In amongst all this, no one seems to have noticed the class 108 is a 4 car unit :P

I did but forgot to mention it -  :sorrysign:

Thanks for the very nice videos, Nobby. You've got some realistic length trains running which look very impressive.

More playing :sleep:
It's a shame the focus on the camera is a compromise between the inner and outer ovals as, with me using the swivel feature of my tripod with one hand, I could probably do with sprouting another hand :hmmm:
Anyway, this one is for Western Region steam fans - class 2884 number 3836 plods along with a mineral load as Foxcote Manor (an Ixion model) passes on the Up line with a rake of Colletts.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/9nzbdj4fsqtj1lz/Western%20Region%20steam%20on%20Kimbolted.MOV?dl=0

Moving to the south of Kimbolted some Southern Region trains could be seen as a Q1 33030 hurries a mineral freight along as N class 31811 passes with some Bulleids and a bogie B luggage van.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/0ardfgq0125zkjy/Southern%20Region%20steam%20on%20Kimbolted.MOV?dl=0

(In truth the Q1 wouldn't travel any slower without slipping on pointwork as it had 30 Peco wagons on the back. It is also an early crest version despite the fact I bought it off a fellow member and the box is labelled 'Late Crest'. I did know this when buying, however, and have 2 of 'em) :doh:

Always been a fan of the Q1. My daughter's partner couldn't understand why I spent so much time on it when I took him to the the York museum, when there were A4s in abundance at that time!

Thanks for two excellent videos of some of my favourite locos. The individually weathered rake of Peco mineral wagons is highly impressive, too.

Great little videos Mick.
I really like both classes of locomotive and keep resisting a 28XX as it would look out of place on my layout (and they were very rarely seen West of Plymouth). 
Don't know why I worry though as I do have a Q1 and (as far as I know) they were NEVER seen in Cornwall.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

I'm also very fond of the Dapol 28XXs. However, I really cannot justify one even with a WR line upgrade from Wadebridge to Penmayne as there would not be any suitable heavy goods trains. However, as the Truro - Newquay - Wadebridge line (passing through Port Perran and Trepol Bay) was, in our alternative Cornwall, upgraded by the WR to mainline standards, I think you could justify running a 28XX, Martin, on suitable goods trains?
