I have one of the original resin Kernow Wadebridge Type 4 stone signal box which served on my Cornish Padstow layout for several years. When Bude boxes were on a deeply discounted sale, I obtained one as the stairs were on the correct side for the Padstow platform. The box was a bit too high. I painted it a grey stone color with thick paint to somewhat disguise the fact that it was brick not stone and used it as the Padstow box until the demise of that layout in a deluge from a roof leak.  It is now stored along with all of my Padstow structures that could saved.  I have returned to local California modeling with my 1950-54 Port Costa layout under slow development.

Skrifa or Skirfa, I do not know what either mean, Could someone enlighten me with a bit of plain English

Don't forget that all of us from beyond the Tamar are foreigners. Permit Kernow to enjoy their own language - even if occasionally mis-spelt!

As explained on the index page linked here http://www.kernowmodelrailcentre.com/pg/182/KMRC-Skrifa---Blog-index 'Skrifa' is the Cornish for "writing" we like to educate, inform and be a little whimmy!

There have been a couple of new Skrifa posts this week. 

 

One about the background of the Bachmann Southern Region EMUs (and DEMU) currently available following the arrival of their 2-HAPs and a little update of some of our exclusive projects. 

See the Skrifa index here http://www.kernowmodelrailcentre.com/pg/182/KMRC-Skrifra---Blog-index

 

Oh and a few ideas from Santa too, Nadelik Lowen!

Any model railway needs a good solid base and building a baseboard. Read our latest Skrifa post about the Mod-U-Rail baseboard system that is available now, simple to use, expandable and effective. http://www.kernowmodelrailcentre.com/pg/187/KMRC-Skrifa---Baseboard-building--Mod-U-Rail
