Of a wet Sunday

17th July 2011

Surprisingly, both Andrew and I were in different places on Saturday, and neither of them railway oriented (well Andrew spent a time on a platform at the Mid Norfolk, but that’s another story) and I was at a 95th birthday party. But by Sunday we were pretty much in the same place at the same time and so loaded up the van to return to Rowsley.

Of "Pluto", Teesmaid" and "Libby"

28th August 2011

And so another August Bank Holiday is upon us. Andrew was away on Saturday, but was anxious that I went up to the DVLR, partly to deliver two radiator elements as spares for Trevor and Vince – owners of D9523 – and partly so that I could make up a fresh drawing of the vac brake linkage on “Pluto” with a view to replacing it with a more rigid one.

Of plans and Planets

13th February 2011

There is a view that a blog is nothing more than a diary that exists on the ‘web, but there is one important difference. You can pour your heart out on paper, insult anyone you choose, outline your aspirations, all in the knowledge that only you – and perhaps your spouse – are ever likely to read it in your lifetime. The blog is a different matter, and there have been “things going on” which I could not report until all parties had agreed. Too soon would have screwed it all up.
