    Engineer Graves eases up on the cutoff and regulator as he pulls his train into St. Ives. He is passing the engine shed on the left, and the warm afternoon sunshine bathes the train upon arrival, if just for a moment. The temperature is dropping as the sun slowly slips away.

    Lights are already coming on in the houses and shops that front the station. There is no crowd here, as all are at the festival. The Commissioners are all in good humor now, as they were treated royally by the train crew, and all is forgiven.

    Graves will hunt down that little squirrel station master Blevins back in Penzance, when he gets the consist back there. Grave's figures he's owed several pints for snatching the man's bum out of the fire. First he's got to locate the station master here for orders to return to Penzance. He shivers slightly in the cool air as he climbs down from his engine, not forgetting to pat her gently on the cab side in appreciation for running so smoothly on a minutes notice.

    Evilcrow,
    Thanks. I know he will, haha.

    Excellent shots of yours! I really like your lighting.

    Is that rebuilt 35005 4-6-2 payware? I tried searching the CM for one but didn’t find any.

    Starting back with doing things again on my Broad Gauge Cornwall layout. It's a huge project and every so often I just have to leave it alone for a while to stop myself burning out.

    The single driver Broad Gauge 'Sharpie' 4-2-4T is an engine I put together especially for track testing, but it's quite capable of helping out with a passenger run or two.

    It's a Brunel timber viaduct Heinrich. They were used extensively in Cornwall on the old Broad Gauge lines. I have a lot more of them to put in place yet before the layout is complete.

    You have some work to do Annie.
    According to Wikipedia the 70 miles of the Cornwall Railway had 42 wooden viaducts!

    Fortunately Frank I just have the ten from Truro to Falmouth to worry about as well as the two on the West Cornwall Railway stub section. In a way it would be nice to model the whole of the old Cornwall Railway, but there's enough difficulties with research just on the section I'm representing.
    I quite enjoy installing Brunel viaducts even though it's a lot of work. Steve Flanders very kindly made me the correct type of Brunel viaduct for the Falmouth branch viaducts. I just think he was delighted to find someone else who had a serious interest in the Broad Gauge era.

    Another snap of the Carnon viaduct on the Falmouth branch. At 96 feet in height it's the second tallest viaduct on the Falmouth branch. On the bank of the river the SG Redruth & Chacewater Railway line can be seen passing under the viaduct. It's not operational, - it's just part of the scenery.

    More snaps of running test trains on my 1880s Cornwall layout. This area of the layout is largely complete, but there's a lot more that's still a huge unfinished construction project.

    A nice looking screenshot Rod. A real classic.


    My rebuild and tidy up of the TS2004 layout 'Turks Castle' continues.

    This is Minehead.
