Re: Off the Rails - Train Stuff

Steam turbines were experimented with on a modified Princess Royal class 4-6-2 Pacific Locomotive of the LMS, built in 1935 which would later be rebuilt to conventional form. It was rebuilt to conventional form in 1952 using new frames and "Duchess" (Princess Coronation class) cylinders and named "P...

Re: Off the Rails - Train Stuff

I beleive it is more to do with "where others have led" combined with a desire to fill the gaps of lost motive power that has led to the "boom" of new-build or re-creation builds in the last few years. Heck this country led the way, to begin with, with railways so we shold be intertested in preservi...

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

With respect Ernie Lazenby, I would suggest it is time for you to stop sh*t-stirring. You want to discuss rights and wrongs, who owns what or does not, I suggest you do it over the phone or face-to-face instead of sh*t-stirring on a public forum. You write in such a way as to be deliberatley antagon...

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

There is a certain irony in making this claim, and then using the forum to post an open letter 'because you know that they read it', when you have spent so much time on puerile name calling and attacks against the Ruskin (and other bodies) on here in the past. If you didn't instigate the squabble, ...

You can see the tint in that quite plainly. Definitely not a "pure" white. Well, not to a trained eye anyway.

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

On The Hoof is new to me, in any case I pursue. The Water Brake I accept was once planned to obliterate the buoy over the Rear Shoe, which the trade the chicken Tail suggests in spite of all that it does, in all regards successfully. Regardless, - K7 still needs to drop down. Which it would not see...

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

Looks like a lot of arse covering coming from the LDNPA, shifting the blame for any delays on proving trials squarely at other parties. But then, that is just my own view of it and that may be a misinterpretation on my own part. There is also a liberal amount of mentioning "apply for an exemption to...

Re: Pic of the Day

It is what it is and for now I will live with it whilst I determine a solution. It may be in how the feed is called to the main webpage (adobe flash/shockwave? Java/javascript?). I have all flash, shockwave and java/javascript blocked from loading on all my laptops and pc's as it can be insecure and...

Re: Pic of the Day

Aah well, 5 laptops, running MacOS (10.13 or 10.14) and 3 pc's with win7 pro or ultimate and the only device that shows the page correctly is an iPad.

Good to know it is only the laptops and PC's misbehaving and not the BBP website.

Looking forward to the next update ;)
