Re: Database Update


I'll be adding info on almost every single non-air at Richmond Vale

Hi Chris,
I shall take a look into this. I thought
original posters of information could edit their work.
I may have to change a setting.
I will change to original owner.
Number/name would be that which was it's original.
Any new number/name can be added in the notes section,
an example of this can be seen in the non-air hopper
Thanks for the additions BTW. I need to get up to
Richmond Vale and a few other museums to check out all
their non-air hoppers and the condition report of


I've just added a bunch of records to the preserved
diesel database,
A couple of suggestions:

I can't edit the records once they are added. I
spelt museum wrong
in a couple and I can't change it.
Maybe "Previous Owner" should be "Original Owner" as
some locos have
had multiple owners.
Is the "Number/Name" field supposed to be the
original number or the
current number in the case of locos that have been
renumbered? I
added ER&S No.4 as 4 but it is now numbered 3 at
Coal Creek.
