  1. A spell on the layout before popping up to Aish / Totnes for some very damp Pilotmans duties on the big railway. Sadly no WR whoppers like these below, but do get some freight & class 57 on the sleepers to play with...
  2. Some great stuff here. I recall CCT and other 4 wheelers at St Erth sidings for fruit & veg in the early 80s. I guess this was worked into parcel workings, but I have seen them included on the afternoon tripper from St Erth. Hayle wharves last trip was 1980 I think. I remember mineral wagons with a very fishy smell in the 1980s at Truro. NCL at Drump lane had all sorts of 4 wheel vans there when rail linked. Holmans had 4 wheeled flat wagons for the small generators, and minerals for the scrap. As a Signalman from 1989 to 1994 in Cornwall I think all the areas have been covered above. The Truro fertiliser traffic was in Cargowaggon type wagons by then. I don't recall any revenue earning freight west of there from the early 90s. The St Erth scrap came later.
  3. Read above, the Hullabalooe tour did. This is the ONLY occasion this happened. Access for certain class 47 sub classes are also being examined at the moment.
  4. Hi yes I have a number of pictures I'll get around to uploading them at some point.
  5. Back again after a bit of a recess due to losing some image reducing software. I have a good system on board again.

  6. Hi Finally found a good image reducing bit of software. Here are some recent Moorswater shots.
