Back then I had a schoolboy ‘crush’ on the then ‘Queen of Pop’, but her hit-making career lasted only two years in the chiefly male-dominated hit parade: By , however, the music scene was to change forever. I’m talking about the ‘Liverpool Sound’ which knocked spots off everything in the charts. Against a backdrop of Beatles’ smash hits, countless thousands of youngsters set about the task of photographing steam before it vanished from the scene. That’s why I’d made a start on photographing the Aire Valley line before it was too late Thirty-odd years later, however, and it has all ended up in tears The whole lot went up in flames.

Wikipedia Description: Carlisle Castle is situated in Carlisle, Cumbria, England. The castle is over years old and has been the scene of many historical episodes in British history.
The Very Beginnings For this particular page of railway memories, the story truly starts at the beginning, which in this case is at Walton hospital in June when our storyteller, Mal came into the world. Seven days later, whilst Mal was at the hospital he was joined in the nursery by no less than the recently delivered Paul McCartney. Mal along with many others was born into troubled times.
World War Two was raging, with the Liverpool area regularly a target for Goering’s Luftwaffe bombers due to the importance of its docks, warehouses and industry. Then in his father’s house in Liverpool had been destroyed in an air raid. I enjoyed going round all the shipping offices in Liverpool and also remember seeing the overhead railway being taken down.

A view of the 12LDA28 double bank engine that went into the Class 44’s, and showing the considerable bulk of the Crompton Parkinson main and auxiliary generator. Receiving the electricity created by the main generator were six traction motors similar to this one.
As of July Crompton Parkinson had built, or had on its order books 1, axle-suspended traction motors to power parts of BR’s Modernisation diesel fleet. Some of the inner details are captured in this view of the magnet frame showing the field system and rotatable brush gear of the Type C traction motor – six of which powered the Class 44’s.
And for the technically minded Axle Arrangement: Total testing time was a continuous one hundred hours broken into four segments: Eighty hours was to be run at normal output, in this case the continuous rating was set for an output of 2, hp. Forty five minutes were to be run at a ten percent overload, the output being set at 2, hp at rpm.

He was a driver, and as a child of about years old I went down to Dallam shed with him. He also took me to work with him on a number of occasions after he gave up main line driving.

Routes[ edit ] The whole of Helvellyn, above the conifer plantations to the west and the intake walls surrounding the valleys of Glenridding and Grisedale to the east, is Open Access land. Walkers can choose between many routes. Striding Edge begins at Hole-in-the-Wall and then stretches for over 1. This starting point is accessible from both Glenridding and Patterdale. Hole-in-the-Wall used to be a prominent gap in the stone wall on the top of the ridge where a gate was missing.
From here the initial part of the ridge is relatively rounded and has a solid path running along the right-hand side. The path on the right-hand side continues until near the end of the ridge where it switches over to the left-hand side.

Early history[ edit ] John Speed ‘s map of the County Palatine of Lancaster, The county was established in ,  later than many other counties. During Roman times the area was part of the Brigantes tribal area in the military zone of Roman Britain. In the centuries after the Roman withdrawal in AD the northern parts of the county probably formed part of the Brythonic kingdom of Rheged , a successor entity to the Brigantes tribe.
During the mid-8th century, the area was incorporated into the Anglo-Saxon Kingdom of Northumbria , which became a part of England in the 10th century. Modern history[ edit ] The historic county palatine boundaries in red and the ceremonial county in green Lancashire is smaller than its historical extent following a major reform of local government.
It did not cover the western part of Todmorden , where the ancient border between Lancashire and Yorkshire passes through the middle of the town.

Commer Invader of around , perhaps? No idea about the operator though. I have trawled through my books by Cambridgeshire transport expert Paul Carter without success. The lettering in the garter I could marginally improve, enough to make a bit clearer the last three letters on the upper left side of the garter which seem to be Ltd. The first three letters on the top of the right hand side maybe Cam , the C is certain, the rest not so much. This looks like a short name on the left and a larger location on the right given the proportions of the space on each side of the garter.

These ‘mind control’ chips emit electronic pulses that alter brain chemistry in a process called ‘deep brain stimulation. Scroll down for video Mind control chips being developed by the US military could be used to control your mood, after testing in humans began for the first time. Microchips implanted into people’s skulls emit electronic pulses that alter their brain chemistry, in a process called ‘deep brain stimulation. Deep brain simulation involves implanting fine wires, with electrodes at their tips, into the brain.
These are connected to extensions that are travel under the skin behind the ear and down the neck. The electrodes deliver high frequency shock to a targeted area in the brain. This stimulation changes some of the electrical signals in the brain to change behaviour or movement. Researchers from the University of California UC and Massachusetts General Hospital MGH designed them to use artificial intelligence algorithms that detect patterns of activity associated with mood disorders.
Once detected, they can shock a patient’s brain back into a healthy state automatically. Experts believe the chips could be beneficial to patients with a range of illnesses, from Parkinson’s disease to chronic depression.
Phil’s quite obvious enthusiasm for Blyth is infectious – his love of the Northumbrian town shines through, and so I am pleased he has agreed to input his childhood memories on this site. Meanwhile I’ll let Phil take up the story The map itself is quite fragile and it is printed on what I can only describe as greaseproof paper.
24/10/18 – Philip, ‘HWR’ was first issued in July , and was a West Riding of Yorkshire registration mark. A look on the ‘Bus Lists on the Web’ site sadly drew a blank regarding HWR , even after typing in the registration number.
A large portion of the line, between Paddington in central London and Abbey Wood in the south-east, is due to open in Autumn At the time of this opening, that new section and two other existing routes will be officially renamed the Elizabeth line, after Queen Elizabeth II. At each end of the central core, the line will divide into two branches: Part of one of the eastern branches, between Liverpool Street and Shenfield, was transferred to a precursor service called TfL Rail in May ; this precursor also took control of Heathrow Connect in May In August the opening of the core Elizabeth line was delayed from December until Autumn Prior to this delay, the Shenfield branch was to have been connected to the core to Paddington in May and the branches west of Paddington were to be connected to the central core in December , but this schedule is now unclear.
The project was approved in and construction began in on the central section and connections to existing lines that will become part of the route. These tunnels will run from Paddington to Stratford and Canary Wharf in the east. New nine-carriage Class trains will run at frequencies in the central section of up to 24 trains per hour in each direction. It is expected to relieve pressure on existing east-west London Underground lines such as the Central and District lines , as well as the Jubilee line extension and the Heathrow branch of the Piccadilly line.

Crossley was responsible for the design and construction of the major works for the line, including Ribblehead Viaduct. Financial difficulties came to greatly trouble John Ashwell; on 26 October , his contract was cancelled by mutual agreement. On 3 August , the viaduct was opened for freight traffic; on 1 May , the whole line opened for passenger services, following approval by Colonel F.
Rich , an Inspector from the Board of Trade. It has a total height, from foundation to rails, of 55 yards Ribblehead railway station is less than half a mile to the south and to the north is the Blea Moor Tunnel , the longest on the line; it is near the foot of Whernside. For safety reasons, the line was reduced to a single track across the viaduct to avoid the simultaneous loading from two trains crossing, while a 20mph speed limit was also imposed.
In , a waterproof membrane was installed.
