OFF TOPIC: More photographs from the UK

Michael C.
 

Hi all,
 
I've just returned from the Harz Mountains in Germany and the metre-gauge Harzer Schmalspurbahnen.
 
Whilst in the hotel room in the evening, besides watching the Eurovision Song Contest we had BBC World on. What should I see but Steve Davies MBE talking about National Railway Museum in Sierra Leone and in the background Hunslet-built 'Jack' in steam at the Armley Mills Industrial Museum near Leeds.
 
On Sunday morning I departed Germany and travelled through Belgium, France and up the East Coast main line to home in Yorkshire.
 
And the rest is history - today (holiday Monday in the UK) I went to see Jack and the Museum.
 
Please click on the below link for some photographs:
 
 
HSB photos to sort now...

Re: Cobdogla Bagnall

Roderick Smith
 

So far the thread covers only the 15.5.1915 Glenelg breakwater collapse for immersion, which is why the research was published yesterday (it covers other collapses, but without immersion).  Clearly 1956 counts, but the compilation hasn't reached that far yet.  I can't quote the other two yet.

I'll email Denis offlist for other aspects, including the hope for a midweek deckie at Cobdogla on Wed.3 or Thurs.4.6.

G’Day Rod,
If its our Bagnall, I only know of it being underwater twice, once at Glenelg and the other time during the 1956 flood. I will have to speak to Jackson who is also a member of Cobby.

Here is an interesting compilation by the webmaster and newsletter editor for PS 'Industry' (based in Renmark).  He covers also the local Cobdogla steam museum, and much general river history.  I don't know if the many aspects of this loco's life have been grouped in LR before.  He drew on 'Little coastal railways' and 'Irrigation settlement', then added Trove material for which he now had cues.  I thought that this was an open-access facebook group.  If the link persists in being unavailable, I will email him direct and suggest that he sends the material to the LR editor direct.  The essence of the compilation was that the loco had been underwater four times.

Re: Death of Ian Stanley (1937-2015)

Philip G Graham
 

I heartily endorse all the observations made by Rod.

Even to someone a decade younger than Ian, he always seemed young and his enthusiasm was catching. He certainly helped this 'still-wet-behind-the-ears' young Tasmanian during his tentative years new to Victoria in the mid-1960s. Some of those late-night tram tours were eye-openers...

Re: Death of Ian Stanley (1937-2015)

Roderick Smith
 

Ian was one of those people whom I met when I was a teenage railway
enthusiast, without recalling when, where or why: he was somebody whom I
felt that I had known forever.
On one occasion, he took a carload of enthusiasts (red & white Holden EK) to
see Fyansford when dismantling had just started.
He was a prolific reporter of electric-traction news to Divisional Diary
(Newsrail) and Electric Traction (Transit Australia), under the pen name
'OHB', which I recall came from an era when he was employed by VR, in the
overhead-traction branch.
I can't recall how frequent a traveller he was on railway-enthusiast tours.
He was a keen LRRSA member, and attended meetings regularly and field trips
frequently, even though attendance resulted in a trip from Beaufort to the
big city.
When I started RNV, he became an early subscriber, and a regular reporter.
Earlier this year, despite the ravages of cancer which had returned after a
first remission, he was a passenger on the Mortlake inspection run by
Michael Menzies.
Throughout the years when I knew him, he always looked and sounded young,
always full of enthusiasm and excitement.
As with many of the early brigade, he has left a lasting legacy: his flood
of contributions to paper publications have left a record of events in the
world of transport over many decades.

Amazingly, the service fits between dropping my car for kangaroo-damage
repair, and attending a club meeting as a presenter. By being in Ballarat,
VLine can do it.

One of the problems with the .jpeg format, is that it is ok if you “save” the photo, but each time you click “save as” and change the name of the photo, the jpeg process softens the photo slightly, and if you keep doing it the quality or clarity of the photo will reduce, meaning it will start to appear blurry, if you want to see what actually happens when you save a file as a .jpeg or .jpg, open up your Paint program and on a blank page with a white background draw a number of different shapes, eg: circles /squares, then save it as a .jpg or .jpeg, then keep that page open and open up another separate paint program and open up the same file you just saved, and you’ll see the white background now has pixel dots of various shades of grey all over it and the edges of what you drew will have light/dark grey pixels as well as there will be various shades of grey pixels within the black areas that you drew, that’s why you NEVER save outline drawings as .jpeg’s/.jpg’s because it will destroy the clarity of the drawing.

The resolution of a computer screen is much less than the resolution of a printer.

For a photograph to appear sharp when printed they need to have a resolution of 300 dots per inch. On a computer screen 96 dots per inch looks sharp (and until relatively recently computer screen resolution was only 72 dots per inch).

We do produce a pdf of Light Railways with all the photographs at a resolution of 300 dpi, and it goes to our printer. But that high resolution needs a file size of about 90 Mb.

That's interesting Brian. I am certain it worked with 0 when I tested it, but it didn't work (on my phone) just now.

Direct One (the credit card portal) has changed recently so perhaps they have changed something. Either that or it is browser specific.

It works now with? as the number.  I will investigate the zero problem tomorrow.

Kevin,
You should be able to use 0. I have received renewals with? in the member number field. Or you use 2475 if you wish. That's yours.
We have told members that we want membership numbers on renewals in the last three or four Members Newsletters, so it shouldn't be a surprise. 
You can renew for PDF, paper or both.

This is an interesting development. I have an on-line subscription to Model Railroader and it comes through a subscription service that when you downloaded is a locked set of 70odd PDF pages that are impossible to compile and save so in a sense I am getting much less than the paper copy because I cannot save it anywhere.

 

Is Light Railways going to be a simple single PDF file that is searchable and in PDF archival format?

 


It will be a simple single PDF file which is searchable and which you can save on your hard drive, iPad etc. The copies will be personalised with 'From the library of [your name]' at the foot of each page.

Re: Light Railways magazine as a downloadable pdf

Doesn't seem to work with 0 - I'll have to email for my membership number. I wonder if simply joining again would be easier? That doesn't appear to need a number.

Interestingly, to renew and take up this PDF idea, you need to log on to the Lrrsa renewal page. At that point you need your membership number which (apparently) only comes with the printed version address/cover sheet. So before you change to PDF version, don't forget to keep/find your last magazine wrapper.

That is the case if you wish to renew an existing membership and change to the pdf option. And if you do not know your membership number I think it will work if you put '0' in that field!

But if you are not renewing, but starting a new subscription you should choose the "Join the LRRSA ..." option on this web page:

Thanks Frank,
So, to confirm that  it will be possible to print out any pages you want to keep a hard-copy off.
