Thank you, Kernowman. I hope that the disconnection of Oil road does not mean that no provision will be made for a future reinstatement of rail-borne fuel delivieries. If there is going to be an increase in frequency of services on the main line to Plymouth/beyond, it could follow that larger quantities of fuel will be delivered to Penzance. In this case, a train of fuel tankers should be more economically attractive than before. 

My thoughts exactly, you've hit the nail on the head there.

Albert's siding (just west of the shed) and No 4 running road (behind the shed on the inland side) have also now been lifted in preparation for the new shed, so it may be interesting stabling stock over Christmas day and Boxing day.

I suppose some stock could be berthed in Penzance station over the holiday.

There's nothing in the station but 57605 Totnes Castle and sleeper stock (4 day coaches and 5 sleeper coaches) is stabled just outside the station on Slopers siding at Eastern Green.
Also at Long Rock there's 3 X 150s, 3 x 153s, 1 X 5 coach Voyager, 08410 on a barrier vehicle and 3 spare coaches and 4 x HSTs plus, I suspect, another HST in the shed.
Happy Christmas. Grin
