Date   

March 2011 narrow gauge industrial trip to trip to Sichuan (China)

John Browning
 

I am forwarding to the group details of an exciting trip to China in March
next year that some may be interested in.

I have previously participated in tours that John Raby was involved in as a
tour organiser and am confident that the tour would be congenial and well
run.

I would love to go, but from my perspective at this stage, I think I will be
trying to focus on my more central interests.

However, it is definitely past one minute to midnight as far as such
opportunities allow.



To read all the details and see what can be expected, go to
http://www.users.waitrose.com/~jraby/chinatour1.html

Subject: March 2011 trip to Sichuan for the Jiayang (Shibanxi) and Mojiang
narrow gauge coal railways



A proposal is now on my website
http://www.users.waitrose.com/~jraby/chinatour1.html for a China ng tour.
This is only 6 months' away so I am keen to get the word out now as quickly
and as widely as possible. Please pass this on to anyone who might be
interested. The reason for the slightly last-minute decision is the progress
on a road that will link Bago to Qianwei which is due to be completed by
spring 2011. Spring 2012 might be too late!



Please let me know if you are interested. I will then keep you updated on
progress with this trip. For those who may want to stay in China for longer
than 10 days, I should be able to help suggest additional things to do after
the trip either using Zebedee as your guide in Sichuan or with other guides
in other parts of China. Depending on my own plans prior to this tour, I may
not have much time left on a one month China visa to be able to stay long
beyond the end of the tour but that could change. I am currently thinking of
celebrating my 60th in Bago for around 2 weeks with my wife before the trip
proposed below.



Best wishes

John Raby

Interesting reading.

Incidently, Victoria Mill have regulatory accreditation for the
Homebush Steam Train component only - thats an example where two forms
can co-exist, and that operation continues successfully with services
a couple of times each year. So its not accredited for the Sugar Cane
Operation, just the passenger operation. One may think if regulations
was so burdensome, the passenger operation would be hived off?

Is the regulatory model so much of a burden that an opportunity to put
some otherwise road freight back onto rail willing to be lost?

What is the actual cost, has it been costed? The 2010Transport (Rail
Safety) Regulation reveals the fees section 46

State Mine Ds

Brad Peadon PdOB <alcogoodwin@...>
 

Guys,
        Has anyone been up to State Mine of late?
  I am wondering about the former BHP Ds there. Are they all operational and what livery each wears nowdays?
 
  While on the topic, is the privately owned D7 in Canberra in an operational condition and still yellow?
 
Many thanks
Brad

Hi David,

I tried searching for Katamatite, and had the same problem you experienced. I then went to the alphabetical search section, clicked on "D" and scrolled down to Dookie, and was able to open the document. Seems to be a slight problem on the site, as you have found.

Regards,

Scott

Re: Arnold Lockyer OAM

Frank Stamford
 

That information is unfortunately correct. Arnold died yesterday (Monday).

Arnold was an extremely enthusiastic supporter of
the LRRSA. In the 1980s he, and his wife Dorelle,
attended quite a number of tours organised by the
LRRSA in Victoria. On one of these trips he
floated the idea of setting up an LRRSA Group in
Adelaide and holding meetings there. As a result
he was invited to the LRRSA National Conference
which was held in January 1983. Subsequently he
organised the first LRRSA Adelaide meeting in
March 1983. Since that time meetings have been
held every two months in Adelaide, and until
quite recently Arnold has been the Convenor of the SA Group.

The work he did for the LRRSA in maintaining the
SA Group was greatly appreciated by the LRRSA
Council, and he was very highly regarded by all
those LRRSA Council members who had met him.

Although he was justifiably passionate about
railways and tramways in South Australia, his
interests spread much wider. He contributed to
"Light Railways" on a number of occasions, both articles and letters

David,
A couple of weeks ago on my laptop [windows 7] my Adobe reader updated
itself, but after this update every time I went to download a PDF it would
only give me the first page and then come up with some thing about not being
able to open the file properly. I un-installed my Adobe reader and download
a new version and haven't had any problems since.

The alternative would be to download the RTF versions and then PDF them.

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.

I don't have any problems accessing it either with firefox at home or

Re: Historical Acts of Parliment -railway construction

Hello David,

The difficulty is that it is hard to diagnose a problem in someone else's computer when that computer is remote.

My feeling is that there probably is some problem in the settings or software on your computer, but I have no idea what it might be. You have not mentioned what web browser you are using.

I have just tried the site in question, and it worked for me, in both Firefox (my preferred web browser) and Internet Explorer. My PC is now somewhat geriatric (its five years old!) running MS Windows XP with Service Pack 3.

One thing that I did find unusual in the way the site worked, is that the pdf opened in a new window inside the existing web page. I do not remember seeing this on any other website.

It is unfortunate that so far no one else on this Yahoo Group seems to have encountered the problem that you have, so no one has experience in how to fix it.

Regards,

Frank

AustLII and Railway Legislation

Iain
 

David,



I use AustLII quite a bit and I got on line a few minutes ago and was able
to download the PDF's of NSW legislation without trouble so I suppose I am
of little use to you.



The alternative would be to download the RTF versions and then PDF them.



I download the RTF version as often I need to put sections of legislation in
my reports to discourage overenthuastic developers from breaking them!



Regards
