A Great Day Out.
We had just had a light fall of snow and I remember it being bitterly cold and my cycle ride back to St Austell was perilous.
A connection is still in situ, in 1968, presumably to the old goods yard.

Many thanks for bringing us this reminder that we are now into winter.
I'm pleased to say that the creator of the Cornwall and Devon Railways route in Train Simulator 2019 has posted a video on You tube showing the arrival of a steam tour, its re-fuelling procedures and subsequent departure. The video can be viewed using the following link:
I have to be clear though that there are some limitations in the way the Simulation can depict the movements you have described, and there are also some flaws in the signalling displays that cannot as yet be corrected. Also, I was not driving the loco and deny all responsibility for the fact that some movements are a bit quicker than would be in real life!!
However, I hope you will enjoy the video, an awful lot of work goes into representing the route as accurately as possible.
Thanks again for your help. Best regards, Geoff.
Thank you for the link, I hope our readers enjoy it.
When this route was released, someone commented that it would be ace to have models of the Port of Part tanks, Alfred & Judy, to run. Another user has offered to create these models if someone can find drawings for him to work from.
I just wondered if you would know whether the drawings have ever been published in the public domain and whether they're available for the general public to view? These models would be freely available so nobody would be profiting from the project.
Many thanks, Alex Lancaster Can ANYBODY HELP PLEASE
