Hello it's me back asking for 1966 details. Assume a small Cornish branch to a small private clay-dry; couple of hoods a week.
1. Would this be a two man crew + a brake van with guard?
or 2. driver + two wagons?
I know you'll know, it's the joy of this forum.

I've gone on thinking, if that's what it can be called, and I suppose it could also be an occasional call on a pick-up goods. In which case my original idea of a gronk or something smaller would be 63xx or similar. Liskeard was served around this time by a 63xx for goods work.

If it's a branch line, ISTR it will require a brake van; if a siding, not necessarily. Either way the loco will be double manned - would there be a shunter as well?

Sorry, just seen there is another thread about this.
