Re: LRRSA online renewals

Folks,

The problem with online renewals has been solved.Our internet host was using a security certificate supplied by a company which both Google and Firefox deemed to be untrustworthy. The certificate has been replaced, and now the online renewals should be processing correctly.

Hi John

I just tried to renew mt overseas subscription and all went well until I had to return to the merchant. I got a message  this was not a  secure site ( I assume that means "SecurePay"!!!)

I paid by Paypal and they say the transaction has been processed- very strange. What has happened

Best wishes

John,

    I use Firefox normally, but also tried again with Google Chrome - same result. As you say, the error message seems to be at the SecurePay end rather than LRRSA.org.

Peter,

Nobody has paid twice, and I am currently monitoring the renewals so I can jump on anything which looks odd the moment it happens. But it is very annoying, to me, and I can only assume, to those who are trying to renew - which is why I am seeking some help to give me a lead on where to go next.

Dear all,

On the 23rd February I travelled from Delhi Cantt to Rewari in India behind a broad (5'6") gauge WP class 4-6-2.

At Rewari there is a steam locomotive depot where broad and metre gauge locomotives are stored.

I have uploaded a collection of images to Flickr.

Please visit: https://www.flickr.com/photos/55958391@N07/albums/72157677477799787

But only if you're interested - as this is rather off-topic!

Emu Bay Railway Railmotor

ssas92@...
 

Does anyone have any information or photographs concerning the Emu Bay Railway railmotor WG1, the articulated Walker Gardner railmotor?

 

I have a general outline and some photos from Lou Rae’s books but I haven’t seen any photos taken from the trailer end, nor any of the interior.

 

I wish to build a 7 ¼” gauge ride-in version of this railmotor and would prefer it to adhere as closely as possible to the prototype with respect to interior design, upholstery and paintwork.

 

Any help and advice would be appreciated.

Hello all,
For those who aren't already aware, NSW Land Registry Services now have a lot of historical information online; the following comes from Spatial Source:
------
NSW Land Registry Services and the NSW government have made a wealth of historical plan, title and map data freely available online.

Historical Land Records Viewer is an online tool that gives access to images of historical plans, titles, maps and indexes. Recent data updates have now made over over 2.5 million records viewable with the tool, which were previously unavailable online.

The image collection available via the viewer now includes:

  • Charting Maps: Parish Maps, Town Maps, and other maps known as ‘Charting Maps’, recording subdivision and status changes to land parcels.
  • Plan Lodgment Books: used between 1863 to 1995 to record details of plans lodged with the department.
  • Old Form Torrens Registers: Torrens Titles from 1863 to 1961 available at NSW LRS, Queen Square | NSW State Library | State Records (Kingswood) public terminals – view only.
  • Historical Parish Maps: cancelled editions of Crown Land Parish and Town Maps which show how subdivisions and other actions have altered land parcels over time.
  • Old System Grant Index and Register 1792-1862: a chronological record of the surnames or company names of those who bought or received grants of land from the Crown, and the associated images.
  • Old System Purchasers Index 1896-1985: a record of individuals purchasing an estate or interest in land.
  • Old System Vendors Index 1825-1986: a record of individuals selling an estate or interest in land.
  • Old System Deeds 1825-1992: images from the General Register of Deeds for all registered common law (known as Old System) land transactions.

Old Form Torrens Registers and Old System Deeds 1825-1992 are available to view online, but must be purchased if copeies are required. Other records viewable online are available via the NSW State Library, the State Records Authority, NSW Land Registry Services and the NSW LRS online portal.

Re: OFF-TOPIC narrow gauge railway photographs.

We stayed in a grand Raj-era hotel in Darjeeling for a few nights. It was close to zeroC outside and our room had a lovely coal fire to keep it warm. We'd flown in to Bagdogra and driven up to Darjeeling in the early evening. From Darjeeling we went over into Sikkim to Rumtek, Gangtok and Kalimpong before heading back to Bagdogra to fly to Delhi.

It was a long time ago but I seem to recall one of Gangtok's claims to fame was that it was the largest city in India furthest from a train line.

The following day I left Darjeeling and travelled the full 55 miles of the railway by diesel. Those photos haven't been looked at yet...

Nice photos.

Am I missing something in the photo of the turntable at Darjeeling?? It seems to be fishplated onto the lead. Surely they don't have to undo the fishplates to turn something? That would lose its novelty very quickly!!

Been there seen that, but in the days of filum, you had to be sparing of taking photos, so I didn't take a photo of the turntable. Did a trip from Darjeeling up to Ghum. Our driver/guide thought we were mad (in all probability so did my wife!!). Would love to do the whole length, however I suspect even for a train tragic it could get tedious. They certainly weren't single seats when we went in 1997, just those hard bench seats. Would have liked a better look at Batasia Loop, and would have liked to have been able to get off and take photos of the train circling, but train only paused and moved on. I was moderately young and fit - perhaps if I'd known it was approaching and the layout, I should have jumped off and bolted up the embankment to get some shots. If only ...
