G'day Bob,

Have the LR Hon Eds thought of putting the LRRSA Yahoo Group details
inside the front cover of LR permanently - i.e. in the first column,
although I note it's pretty tight for space at the moment (move the
conversion table to cols 2 and 3 ? )

Brad, Frank,

Any chance of including "Defence dept and explosives" (or similar)in
the "1) Industrial" list?

Various govts, both colonial and federal operated an extemely diverse
group of tramways, some only a few hundred yards (ie. S.A. colonial
govt at Port Adelaide Torpedo Station) [the explosive torpedo not the
Bluescope type!] through to Explosives Factory Maribyrnong with over
ten miles of 18½-inch tramway.

cheers Phil

Can some please enlighten us lesser mortals to what the torpedoes you are referring to, actually are?

Sorry. They are the Treadwell ladles used for carrying around molten metal. I think they are about 300 tonnes.

Commonwealth Engineering - history

Phil Rickard <chy_gwel_an_meneth@...>
 

Railway historians and enthusiasts may be interested in the first
volume (of three) of a newly-published account of Waddingtons
Ltd/Commonwealth Enginering, covering the years 1921 to 1955.

The front cover features a Phil Belbin painting of Comeng-built "D2"
shunting at the Port Kembla blast furnace of Australian Iron and
Steel. (though personally I preferred the "Light Railways" front cover
on LR184 depicting Phil's painting of a Baldwin steam tram shunting at
Waddington's Glanville works - what a pity Comeng didn't build steam
trams, only electric trams!)

One presumes Vol 2 will include more rail-orientated production
including sugar-cane tramway locomotives

More details at the publisher's web site:
http://www.rosenbergpub.com.au/handleProduct.asp?id=71&;catid=2

Hi Phil/all,
Had a real quick browse through the book
at the Newcastle exhibition. It was obviously quick as
I didn't realise the cover was a painting and not a
real shot :-)
Certainly seems to be well worth the cost. I would
have grabbed it there and then but my finances are
headed to towards a layout, Fiji and the Philippines
in coming months.
However I have to say (and I now a few on the group
will not be surprised) that I was glad to see D2 on
the cover. :-)

Cheers
Brad

I have gradually listing it in the links section of

Apparently the non-availability of steam has something to do with fire precautions. Any fire getting away in that rugged terrain would be horribly difficult to stop.

Admin: Photo Attachments!

BLI BLI <alcogoodwin@...>
 

Morning all,
Just wanting members views on whether or
not photographic attachments should be accepted on
group posts or whether it be limited to the
files/photos sections?
We are able to permit them so photos can be posted
occasionally for discussion.
Otherwise they can be placed into the other sections
where members who actually have a Yahoo account can
view them.

Interested in your thoughts. THe group is currently
set up with the default setting of allowing them.

I don't think attachments should be allowed to emails to this group.

I think there is a security risk with this relating to viruses etc.

Most groups I belong to don't allow it, and I am reluctant to join groups that do.

Gents,

Being a total novice to any sort of online group, can I just re-cap
here? Are there two ways of putting photos on the group site?

One in the Photos tab and one by attaching them to a posting?

If the attachment option is a security risk, can I take it that the
Photo section is safe/safer?

thanks Phil

Thanks Frank,

So if one did have a photo for discussion etc., one could post it in
the Photos section and separately post a message that it was there to
be looked at but that all comment/discussion is to be on the Message
board.

Sounds a safer way to go - the last thing I need is any sort of virus!

Phil,

Yes you could post it to the Photos section and the system will
automatically generate a message to the group(if you ask it to by
ticking the appropriate box).

You can also place other types of files such Word files or pdf files.

(I have found a lot of useful model railway information as files in
Yahoo groups, for example English translations of German instructions
for loco kits, and I have posted my own English language instructions
for a German loco kit!)
