Passengers – 1st July Goods – 7th January Closed: Goods – 6th November With the opening of the North Warwickshire Line to passengers from Tyseley to Bearley on 1st July , it was soon realised that a new station in Birmingham City Centre was required for the ‘residential’ traffic that the new line had generated. Designed as a three platformed station with temporary station buildings, just two platforms were built on an island.
Every year hurricane season sneaks up on us and then leaves us in November with nary an umbrella blown over. Don’t get me wrong, we’ve had some exciting times here on the beach, but usually amid doom and gloom predictions, we usually leave the year fairly uneventful.
Freehold Immaculately presented Grade II listed house set in enchanting gardens. Wreyland Manor is an exceptional property with exquisite gardens and grounds. Wreyland Manor is the most stunning property situated within a quiet edge of village location standing within magnificent gardens and grounds of approximately 9 acres. Listed Grade II, Wreyland Manor, with origins dating as far back as the c13, is principally an outstanding example of a c16 through passage property retaining many appealing and interesting features, far too many to mention, to remind one of a long gone era.
Beautifully presented the property exudes great charm, and appeal.

Will we have a slow year this year as well? This is used to give an estimate of the potential property damage and flooding expected along the coast from a hurricane landfall. Wind speed is the determining factor in the scale, as storm surge values are highly dependent on the slope of the continental shelf and the shape of the coastline, in the landfall region.
Note that all winds are using the U. Storm surge generally ft above normal.
The Hull job. Most of what follows is self-explanatory: for a time the LNWR worked trains through to Hull and back with its own locomotives. It was a long run and one assumes that Tuplin’s description is partly fictional, especially the loss of the firing shovel on the return leg climbing towards Standedge.
Natural units The UTC timestamp in use worldwide is an atomic time standard. The smallest time step considered theoretically observable is called the Planck time , which is approximately 5. The caesium atomic clock became practical after when advances in electronics enabled reliable measurement of the microwave frequencies it generates. As further advances occurred, atomic clock research has progressed to ever-higher frequencies, which can provide higher accuracy and higher precision.
Clocks based on these techniques have been developed but are not yet in use as primary reference standards. Conceptions of time[ edit ] Main article: Time Andromeda galaxy M31 is two million light-years away. Thus we are viewing M31’s light from two million years ago,  a time before humans existed on Earth. Galileo , Newton , and most people up until the 20th century thought that time was the same for everyone everywhere.
This is the basis for timelines , where time is a parameter. The modern conception of time is based on Einstein ‘s theory of relativity , in which rates of time run differently depending on relative motion, and space and time are merged into spacetime , where we live on a world line rather than a timeline.

Each and every one of us will have at one time or another experienced the ebb and flow in our passion for trains and railways, whether it be an allegiance to steam or a penchant for more modern diesel and electric traction…in essence, the appeal of trains frequently comes and goes, but it never leaves us entirely. Terry’s fascination with trains began in the West Riding of Yorkshire during the s when the majority of small boys shared a passion for train spotting.
It started off as a relatively simple hobby at first, little morethan jotting down a few engine numbers at his local station at Saltaire near Shipley until it dawned on him that spotting the same old engines time and time again was a fruitless exercise and a wider search began in earnest. His parents were badgered for permission to travel further afield, but wisely no mention was made of the hairy escapades his trips involved, often pedalling mile upon mile on push bikes to faraway places and climbing over perimeter walls to gain access to engine sheds.
Alas, by the mid s our search for engine numbers took an ominous downturn and our spotting trips were returning fewer rewards than previous times, not least because collecting engine numbers was a speculative pursuit where success was measured by the sum total of ‘cops’ collected. Now you don’t have to be a mathematician to calculate the odds of adding more numbers to your collection when the rank and file of BR steam was being culled at an alarming rate. This is where things began to get serious, for having exhausted the ‘cop’ rate in our local area, the only way of filling the gaps in our Ian Allan ABCs was by travelling further afield, and so marathon trips were planned to distant BR Regions to track down those stubborn ‘bs’ of engines we needed before they too ended up on the scrap heap.
However, in the world of railway photography the complete opposite often turns out to be the case. Looking at old photographs of BR steam days posted on the Internet, you have to keep reminding yourself that many were taken by thirteen and fourteen year-old schoolboys with little or no knowledge of railways or the locos they were photographing. And it’s fortunate also, that the old cameras did not discriminate between the age or life experience of the person whose finger pressed the button.

Headteacher Sharon Tarr has been blasted by parents of pupils aged four to 11 after sending home newsletters explaining a ‘nut-free environment’ policy which came into force yesterday.
Read More Some parents believe the decision, based on new pupils with an allergy to nuts, is too extreme and leaves little for other children to eat. Peanuts According to Mail Online , Miss Tarr has banned products including peanuts, peanut butter, packs of nuts, most chocolate spreads, fruit and cereal bars that contain nuts, chocolate bars and nutty sweets.

The History of Steam Power. The age of steam is etched firmly into America’s historical memories through its romantic association with railroading, folk songs, travels with Mark Twain on the Mississippi and the personal experiences of generations of Americans. About 2, years ago, Greek mathematician Hero experimented with steam power, constructing a rudimentary rotary steam engine. A spinning ball driven by steam jets, he considered the device a toy. More than years later, two British inventors began to turn steam power into practical devices — Thomas Savery in and Thomas Newcomen in James Watt further improved on their inventions, patenting several designs that earned him the title of father of the modern steam engine.
The age of steam lasted almost years, until the internal combustion engine and the electricity took over. Even so, efficient steam turbines are still used today for submarine torpedo propulsion, for electricity generation by electric utilities and for naval propulsion systems. Exhibit Companion Classification of Engines Broadly speaking, an engine is a device that converts energy into useful mechanical power.
The term “engine” usually refers to heat engines — engines that convert heat energy to mechanical energy. Heat engines usually consume fuel to produce the heat. Heat engines are divided into two categories — internal combustion burning and external combustion. A conventional gasoline engine is an internal combustion engine; gasoline is burned inside the cylinders to produce hot gases whose expansion moves the pistons.
Steam engines are external combustion engines; fuel is burned outside the engine itself, producing high temperature, high pressure steam which them moves pistons or a rotating turbine.

The GWR rationalized the dock’s shed facilities and concentrated the stabling of locos at East Dock shed or at Danygraig where the class provided motive power for the new Kings and Queens Docks. A bell is also carried by Collett’s T dock shunter no behind it; this was built by the Avonside Engine Co, Bristol, in and spent all its life in and around Swansea docks. Right Danygraig shed performed most of the dock work, but Swansea East Dock shed had turns into the older docks and mainline shunting.
Ashburton’s location in the heart of the South Devon countryside makes it a hot spot for holidaymaker’s, meaning that there is no shortage of good B&B’s and guest houses around.
Clock A large variety of devices have been invented to measure time. The study of these devices is called horology . An Egyptian device that dates to c. The T was oriented eastward in the mornings. At noon, the device was turned around so that it could cast its shadow in the evening direction. The position of the shadow marks the hour in local time. The idea to separate the day into smaller parts is credited to Egyptians because of their sundials, which operated on a duodecimal system.
The importance of the number 12 is due the number of lunar cycles in a year and the number of stars used to count the passage of night. They could be used to measure the hours even at night, but required manual upkeep to replenish the flow of water.

Bill Tuplin must have been a delightful man who shared a love of steam locomotives with a fear that the automobile would kill the British countryside. But in spite of his engineering background his views on how the steam locomotive should have been constructed are frequently perverse and should be read with caution, sometimes with extreme caution. Ell’s and Carling’s comments on Tuplin’s paper presented to the Institution of Locomotive Engineers need to be absorbed, before Tuplin’s observations are cited as evidence.
As the extract from North Western steam illustrates Tuplin was an excellent story teller, but is it fact or faction?
INTRODUCTION by David Hey Terry Sykes’s ‘In and Out of Trains’ is an appropriate heading for his page and I wish I had thought of it myself.

The replacement structure of seven arches was completed On a slightly different alignment to the original structure and was slightly higher at 68 feet. A Peak with an up train crossing Penwithers viaduct.
However it wasn’t until the line was extended through the 70 yard Truro tunnel to Falmouth – this opened to passengers 24th August and to goods on 5th October Leaving Truro station trains faced a stiff climb of approximately 1 in 60 up to the tunnel, at both ends of the tunnel there were deep cuttings, a short one at the west end but a long and very deep on at the east end.
These cuttings are largely hidden from public view these days as the abandonment of steam traction has demanded far less vegetation control and quite large trees are apparent. However the following three pictures one can see the views, firstly to the west and then to the east.
