One for Bob 'Blackcloud' of This Parish in particular;

I realise the PhotoBucket Fiasco has deleted all the photos in this Thread (& all my others, no doubt!!) but via another Hosting Service, here's some pics of Lyddlow Goods taken yesterday (Sat 14th Oct 2017) on it's Exhibition Debut in my ownership, at the 5th Cradley Heath Show.







Okay it was the "silly half hour" near the end, hence the congestion, but also shows my new Minerva Pannier Tank loco, heavily weathered to look like 3675, in it's last few months of service in the Forest of Dean, circa late 1965.

PS: sorry the photos are a bit big; still getting used to the Hosting site (imgBB.com)

Nice weathering, Jordan, and on the mineral wagon too. How many wagons (+ loco) can the hidden traverser take?

Good to see that the little O goods layout is still in use. Cool

Bob; yes, this little gem of a layout is still very much in use and appreciated!! Very Happy

Giles; the usual cassette capacity is one loco & two wagons, if it's a larger 0-6-0 like the Pannier, and short wheelbase wagons, but something like the Dapol Terrier is short enough to also have three wagons, so an 0-4-0 loco ( I don't have any that short) would likely allow the same capacity.

I really ought to photograph the cassette I suppose!! Embarassed

Many thanks for the offstage capacity notes, Jordan. I, too, have a Embarassed moment. It took me two visits looking at your photos to realise they could be pulled sideways to see the full image
