Thanks Guys,
I love the Ex Mayor Blue, it's exactly the colour that I was hoping for. Roll on the last few kits, it cold be in steam before Cristmas, what a great xmas pressie that would be :-)

Hi Frostie,

Your engine is looking superb, are you home in July & are you going to Boconnoc this year? It would be nice to have your part built engine 'on show' & you could have the 2" in steam as well. I have space in my marquee if it helps.

Hi Steve,

Yes I will be at home for Bocconic this year, but didnt think to apply for a slot as the engine would not be finished !!!
I would love to take it along and share your Marquee, I am off to Egypt on Tuesday and fear that I have left things too late to get an entry.
I am just about to order my ramps so that at least I will be able to get trevithick up into my trailer !!
What are my chances of getting pass for Bocconic ??
Tony T came up to Bodmin this weekend with Cloe, we took both 2" engines to St Lawrence fete, alonside an old 4" burrell, was agood day, Tony loves the Ex Mayor blue on my machine.
Thanks for the ride at trevithick day, I loved it !!
Malcolm.

Hi Frostie

Applications should go to Janet Cooper Tel: 01566 779366 and Eric Hawkins is organising the site and he's on 07768 737349. If you give Janet a ring and say you're with me for the weekend I'm sure there's room for all of us. Last year they could have fitted another dozen engines in easily.

Cheers

Steve
