Re: Another misplaced membership renewal payement

Frank Stamford
 

Thanks David.

Our Hon. Treasurer and Hon. Secretary have been beavering away on this problem, and I think they have now identified all those renewals that were affected.

How many were involved and why it happened I don't yet know, but we will have to try create procedures which will prevent it in the future.

Unfortunately our renewal procedures have become quite administratively complicated, in an effort to give members the greatest possible choice of renewal options.

Regards,

Frank

Hello Jeff,

It would seem that one-week's batch of notifications of email renewals
has gone astray, it may have contained about a dozen renewals. I cannot
confirm that until I get back to Oz next Thursday.
Frank,

To help you count, rather than bother you, I too have had a Membership
Renewal Reminder.

I renewed on 3 July, have an email receipt, and have received the books I
ordered at the same time.

However I think your missing "Light Railways" should be in the mail to you before then.

Evening everyone,

Have a few more steamer questions that someone may be able to help with.

1) APC Fyansford #2 - Is she still at Puffing Billy, or has she gone to Bellarine Peninsula?

2) Porter 6596 of 1920 BHP Newcastle was sold to a gravel company at Penrith. Was this Emu Gravel. Was this Emu Gravel, the same as Vulcan Ironworks 2289 of 1914?

Any help appreciated.

Re: Going north ...

Frank Stamford
 

I mentioned below that I was going north to sacred sites of 3ft 6in significance.

This mainly referred to the Hamar Railwy Museum and library in Norway.

Today I completed two highly successful days there. My blog, referred to below has details.

Regards,

Frank

I am heading off north tomorrow on a pilgrimage to sacred sites of 3ft 6in gauge significance. I will be back on 12 August.

As a result there will be delays, possibly up to three weeks, in handling orders placed via the Online Shop.

I have followed John Browning's lead and set up a blog of the trip, which can be found here:

http://powellite.blogspot.com/

Provided that the new-fangled technology works I will keep it up to date. However it will be mostly text, and any photographs taken on the trip will come from a phone camera. The reason is that I am using an iPad to write the blog, and the simple device to connect the iPad to a digital camera has a six week delivery delay on it!

By the way, the August "Light Railways" is running to time. I have seen a pdf copy of what went to the printer. It is a very good issue, with great graphics, and a very lively and interesting letters section!

Frank


Re: Have you renewed your LRRSA subscription yet?

Frank Stamford
 

Hello Bill,

Don't know what went wrong, and cannot find out until I get back to Oz on 10 August.

However I have alerted the appropriate people, and you should be recorded as paid-up shortly.

The problem is we have renewals coming from several sources, and processing them is fairly complex, requiring different forms of human intervention depending on their source. So far we have been unable to find a suitable computer system at an acceptable cost to handle all the different possibilities.

Frank

Brad,

H K Porter 6596 was BHP 16 and sold to Emu Sand & Gravel Co., Emu Plains, in 1962.  Presv. 1967 by NSWRTM.  Similarly, H K Porter 6415 of 1918, BHP 12, also went to Emu Plains.

Vulcan 2289 of 1912 was No.I at Emu Sand & Gravel, Emu Plains, having come there in 1924 from the same company's Prospect Quarry.  It had gone there in 1921 from the MSW&DB's Potts Hill Reservoir construction.  Presv. by NSWRTM.  Vulcan 2290, No.2 at Emu Plains, had an identical history, except it was latterly a wheel-less wreck and was scrapped.

The fifth loco at Emu Plains was ex NSWGR 2514, Beyer, Peacock 2086 of 1881, a 2-6-0oc.  Purchased in 1937 per Abraham & Wilson, machinery merchants, it was scrapped by 1965.

G'day Brad,

Fyansford #2 was moved to the Bellarine line last year. A visit at the beginning of this year found it stored under cover at Lakers, but the railway could not have been more helpful in arranging a viewing.

No idea about the Porter, sorry.

Regards,

Richard

The August "Light Railways" is due to be packed later this week, and posted by next Monday.

If you are one of members who has not yet renewed you will not be in the mail- out.

To ensure you get the magazine as soon as possible, and any specials we might come up with in the fiftieth anniversary year, please renew now.

Hi everyone,
                 Just a couple of quick questions, the answers of which
may be common knowledge to all but this diesel fan :-)

1)

  BADGER of the Dorrigo museum has apparently in one reference been
mentioned to be BANTUM carring BADGER's plates.
  Can anyone confirm if this is or isn't the case?

2)

  The Australian Steam website mentions Blue Circle's #5 as, at one
stage, being in Wodonga for the failed preservation railway at
Tallangatta (Cudgewa Line), but no current status could be given.
  Does anyone know what has become of this locomotive?

Many thnks in advance.

Brad
According to Jack Southern's notes, as recorded in "Gazetteer of Industrial
Steam Locomotives Illawarra District NSW", Badger was scrapped on 8th Jan
1975 and Bantam went to the Hunter Valley Railway Museum (now DSR&M) on 14th
March 1978 with Badger name plates on it. I would believe Jack Southern over
anyone else as I met him a number of times and his knowledge of Illawarra,
and especially AI&S, locomotives was encyclopaedic.

CS

Re: Railway Jeep

Kevin Crosado
 

And A&G Price used a 1067mm gauge Jeep as their works shunter for a couple of decades after WWII, replacing it with an improved Fordson Major in 1971. One of the NZGR shunting tractor files contains a 1946 reference to papers on the conversion of a Jeep on another file, but, of course, that file hasn't survived.
