10 days have passed and I have been using a newly loaded PC with XP Pro and
it still doesn't work. I keep getting a message that says "file doesn't
begin with %PDF" so I doubt that it is my PC - 2 different programmes and
two different PCs. Nothing happens after that. Unfortunately a reply saying
that it works for you is unhelpful in trying to get it to work for me.
Perhaps no-one else uses it here and thus no helpful reply.

Web site hosting

Damien Tinker
 

Hi everyone
For the last three years I have been slowly working on my website roughly2foot6.com and the time has come to renew the domain. The issue I have is it's expensive hosting with the current server, about 140 for two years. Does anyone know of or have a provider I can continue to use my site with and if so how much?
I'd like to keep at it as it keeps me occupied and I enjoy doing it.
I'll need to pay for the domain name again and I only require about 25 meg of space.
Any suggestions would be great.
Regards
Damien

The conclusion from this is that it was sold for scrap when the site was

He is now at Narangba, a little further up the road.

Good find! I'm only an hour from there so I'll be having a look. I'd like a trolley.

Hi all,

Re: Historical Acts of Parliment -railway construction

Wouldn't hold your breathe on that one Bill, the west line - whilst new
signals are being provided - is very much a line of mudholes waiting for the
first few long and heavy trains to make them appear. Besides there is little
ballast on it so I wouldn't want to run fast in summer unless they are
expecting the heavy concrete sleepers to hold it in place.

Re: Couillet 986/1889

Hello Chris,

Whistle Stop was near Frankston, about 40km south of Melbourne. It closed about 35 years ago.

Couillet loco No.986 is now privately owned but leased to the Puffing Billy Railway. It is currently out of service for boiler work.

Regards,

Frank

Société Anonyme Usines Métallurgiques du Hainaut (Couillet) 986/1889
made an appearance on "Spicks and Specks" on the ABC on Wednesday
night. The ex-West Melbourne gasworks loco was filmed c.1970 at Whistle
Stop at Frankston, and features Kamahl. Missed it?
Go to http://www.abc.net.au/iview/#/view/635224 for 10 seconds of what
must be a couple of minutes' film from the ABC archives. (It's close to
the
start so you won't have to download many MB's).

It would seem to be a clone of The Seekers doing Morningtown Ride on
Puffing Billy as Kamahl sings the same song. (I think I'll stick with The
Seekers
version - Kamahl is no Judith Durham!)
Interestingly, it's the first really good quality film of the
Whistlestop railway
that I've seen although there must be other stuff around; it brought back
memories of the VLRRS tour to Whistlestop a long, long time ago . . .

    When I was briefly working on the A2 at Steamrail some years ago, during coffee break one day one of the jokers in the group said that he'd heard that somebody in Wodonga had a D3 in his backyard, where he was restoring it.      I knew the 'D3 bit' to be totally fallacious but did a bit of probing.      Someone (it may have been Randall Wilson) told me that he understood that someone in Wodonga had a small industrial tank locomotive in his backyard.       It would seem that it was this engine but I had absolutely no idea that it was this big!

Dear Hugo,
                Alexander McCooke has just mentioned that you have a bit of an e-mail list going out to rail enthusiasts.
 
   Below is the text of an advertisement planned to be in the next issue of Railway Digest.    I was a member of the Tallangatta Valley Railway, the previous owner of the loco, and am friends with the present owners.   Obviously the estate selling the loco would like to get the best price it can but I, and I am sure it too and many others, would like to see it in steam again.   I imagine that potential purchases are limited so the more people that hear about it the better.
 
   If you believe it would be of interest to your list members you are welcome to send it out.    I should note that I am getting no financial benefit from the sale of the loco; I just want to see it go to a good owner.
 
'For Auction
0-6-0T standard gauge steam locomotive
This locomotive is ex-Portland Cement Company No. 5 (Andrew Barclay & Sons & Co B/n 1470 of 1916) with 3’6” wheels.
The locomotive is partially reassembled following a major overhaul by Portland Cement in the late 1970s.
The sale includes what is believed to be all components required to make the locomotive complete including wheel sets, connecting rods and new bearings.
It is understood that the overhaul included a new boiler, which has not been fired since leaving the Portland Cement Company site.
The locomotive is currently located in the Wodonga area in North East Victoria.
The locomotive will be auctioned on the 16th October 2010. 
For prior inspection or further inquiries please contact Ron Begley on 0408 69-0612'

            Damian McCrohan

Decauville catalogue 1916 - reproduction soon available

chy_gwel_an_meneth <chy_gwel_an_meneth@...>
 

Decauvillologists may be interested to know that LR PRESSE in France is about to publish (in October) a full reproduction of the 1916 Decauville catalogue. For details see
http://www.lrpresse.fr/lr/product_info.php?products_id=4242

To quote:
Reproduction complète des 448 pages du catalogue Decauville n° 130 d'après le document original de 1916, incluant toute la production ferroviaire du fabricant : voie et matériel de voie, engins à moteurs, voitures, voyageurs et wagons, ainsi que des photos et descriptions du matériel en situation, notamment dans les colonies.

For those ordering prior to 10 September the price is EUR69.00 After that date the price will be EUR77.50 (plus whatever the postage is to Australia).

(LR PRESSE use an online ordering system almost identical to the LRRSA online sales. Despite my lack of French I found no difficulty negotiating it when buying the excellent book on French sugar beet tramways a couple of years ago.)

(If anything in French defeats me, I just copy and paste the web address into Babel fish http://babelfish.yahoo.com/ for translation)

cheers

This train, which is on Sunday 3 October, already has 50 bookings. Anyone thinking of booking should do so quickly as I expect it will reach capacity shortly. A leaflet and booking form was included with August "Light Railways".

Hi All,

While looking for railway information on the web, I found the following web site:
http://www.austlii.edu.au/

Which has acts authorising the construction of various Victorian railway and tram lines.
