Hi Simon,
Your heading Airfix City of Truro caught my eye.

Are you aware that the City of Truro pulled the Westward Television promotional train around the West Country during 1959/60ish.

Westward Television was the very first independent television company to end the reign of the BBC in the West Country

It came to Falmouth in Cornwall when I was a 9/10 year old at Wellington Terrace Primary School, and we were taken on a school trip to Falmouth Railway Station, where we boarded the train to see the banks of TV screens etc in the carriages, and also climbed aboard the City of Truro engine.

The City of Truro also came to Truro City Centre several years ago by road, where it was sited on a special rail so not to crack the paving slabs.

Now you have the engine and tender, would you consider building the Westward Television Promotional Train, to make it quite unique?
