Re: Sugar mill modelling

AASewell@...
 

Hi 

I recently joined the LRRSA group but have been a LRRSA member for a number of years.  

As a British rail fan I find the current and historical scene of equal interest. My interests are largely in industrial style railroading which I have photographed on and off since the mid 1960's both here in the UK and abroad. One area which  has always particularly interested me has been the railways of the sugar industry. We have friends who emigrated to Queensland in 2007 and I have manged a couple of trips to photograph some of the mills on visits to them. Have also been able to see railways in Cuba, South Africa, Dominican Republic and in Florida. I am also a railway modeller and would like to build a diorama based around a sugar mill  narrow gauge in 00/H0 scale. I realise that I would need more space than I have available so decided on portraying the loco shed and bulk sugar/molasses handling. However  while I have a number of photographs and books none seem to show this. I just wondered if members had any such photographs or track plans which they could share with me as an aid in  my project. I would of course pay any expenses

Thanks in advance

Updated Vicmap maps for Memory Map

John Cleverdon
 

Hello all,
For those of you who have the Memory Map software and Vicmap maps, Memory Map now has updated (early 2019) the Vicmap maps, at 1:25,000, 1:50,000 and 1:100,000 scales covering the entire state for sale.

If you already have the Memory Map software, you can do it from within the software (or login at: https://w2.memory-map.com/login.htm). The cost is AU$55 (upgrade) or AU$110 (new purchase).
The new maps are called 'VicMap Topo 25k 2019', 'VicMap Topo 50k 2019' and 'VicMap Topo 100k 2019'. All three are covered in the above price.

If you don't have the software, it is free and can be downloaded at: https://memory-map.com/Mapping_Software.html (you only pay for the maps)

These updated Victorian topographic maps look good, and the hillshading on the 1:100,000 scale maps looks good once you get in to the more hilly areas.

The best way to download the entire maps for each of the 3 scales once you have bought them is to update the Memory Map software to v6.2.2 (available on the website - see: https://memory-map.com/Mapping_Software_Downloads.html)

Once this is installed, use the Map -> Digital Map Store -> Download Whole Map for each of the Vicmap 25k / 50k / 100k scales.
Note that you will need a good Net connection for this, the 25k / 50k / 100k maps are roughly 3.5GB / 1.2GB / 400MB respectively.

Regards,
John

Re: And back again... more narrow gauge photos from India

Michael C.
 

And there's more!

A further album takes the viewer round the 2'6" gauge diesel depot at Kalka - a very impressive site for the narrow gauge.

Take a look, but only if you're interested:

https://www.flickr.com/photos/55958391@N07/albums/72157679942009348

As the painted sign on an old wheel by the entrance to the shed said, "Man's greatest invention - keep it moving."

Cheers,

Michael Chapman.

Dear all,

Apologies in advance for filling your inboxes with off-topic emails.

I have been going through my Indian photos again and have uploaded another collection to Flickr.

This album takes the viewer on the return journey from Shimla down to Kalka by diesel.

G'day all,

Further to my earlier emails, I have been going through my Indian photographs again.

On the 25th February I was privileged to travel on the 2'6" gauge from Shimla to Kathleeghat behind a steam locomotive.

I have to say the KSR is far superior to the Darjeeling Railway - it has better civil engineering, better signalling, better permanent way, better diesels and when I was there better views!

As a fan of the narrow gauge I have been to various 2'6" sites such as the Sittingbourne and Kemsley and the Welshpool & Llanfair in the UK, and Puffing Billy in Australia; however, the KSR is a different beast and is truly amazing.

The link to the images is here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/55958391@N07/albums/72157708034220474

In addition to the railway I have also included several images of the town, shops, monkeys and the view.

Take a look, but only if you are interested.

Cheers,

Michael Chapman

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.

Here is another Darjeeling album.

On the way back the steam train I was on got stuck behind a diesel hauled train that had derailed in the throat at Darjeeling station!

Hello Alan,

The problem has been resolved. I have finalized your transaction and your payment confirmation has been emailed. The problem was with our internet host, and the "not a secure site" was referring to ours. Your transaction with SecurePay had already been completed. 

Thanks for renewing. Sorry for the problems.

Following the distribution of LR266 early renewals have started coming in. While most online renewals are being processed normally, I am seeing a surprising number which seem to have failed, most likely somewhere between going to SecurePay to enter the card details (or PayPal) and coming back to the lrrsa site to display the Payment Confirmation. 

If anybody on the list has suffered from this, can they please let me know the symptoms - where they were in the process and what then happened. I cannot reproduce this at all, and have tried four different browsers, so I don't think it's a browser specific problem.

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.

John,

In that case, I’ll pay by the old fashioned way – by cheque!
