The floor of Ryde Tunnel twin single track bores was raised in to reduce the risk of flooding but the resultant reduced headroom means that modern efficient rolling stock need more than the available headroom. The floor could be lowered again and modern powerful pumps could prevent flooding. An extension from Shanklin to Ventnor through a yard long tunnel could be cost effective if modern stock was used. The railway has around services per day, most moving at 90 mph, and the foot crossing has been deemed to be a major potential danger spot since the children may not be able to judge the speed of approaching trains.

Kindred Spirits each and every one. Above all else there is the generosity of contributors whose photographs of steam days from fifty-odd years ago make this site possible. Indeed the remit has always been to give a voice to new talent on the Internet Now there’s a conundrum! The talent to which I am referring are gentlemen born and raised during the s and s, who spent the best part of their youth dashing around the country in the pursuit of loco numbers or taking photographs of trains just for the fun of it.
They did it for themselves and no one else. I’m talking about that quintessentially British s curiosity called train spotting; a hobby demanding such high levels of commitment and pricey long-distance train travel, that it’s surprising it ever got off the ground in the first place, especially during the penny-pinching post-war years. Even odder still, railway photography – a natural adjunct to spotting – didn’t come cheap either, yet it became one of the fastest growing pursuits for boys – and hallelujah for that!
This brings me to the superb railway photographs of Richard S Greenwood MBE, who travelled the length and breadth of the country recording BR steam days using both ‘still’ and cine cameras; this included a visit to Eastleigh Works left where he took this shot of ex-works ‘Terrier’ T on 6th April , and Exeter St Davids below with this study of PT performing station pilot duties on 9th July Fast-forward to the present day and Richard’s fifty-odd year old photos of BR’s steam days can now be enjoyed by millions on the Internet.

Archaeologists claim to have unearthed a “mini-Stonehenge” The two nearby sites – an oval made up of collapsed slabs, and a metre circle of rounded stones – are believed to be ancient burial sites dating back as far as 5, years. They were spotted by archaeologist Stuart Mendelsohn during a walk on the hills in December and could now become a major tourist attraction. I just can’t believe that it’s been missed by everyone. We’ve found two burial mounds.
The stones may represent particular lunar events in the calendar.

Gavin Whyte The winger is virtually unknown outside of his native Northern Ireland, but United believe they have unearthed a gem.

Goals from Buckley, Danny Graham and Stephen McGinn resulted in Watford dominating the first half but then wholesale changes at the break saw the visitors unable to add to the scoresheet in the second half. Fans hoping to see the first sight of new signing Tom Aldred were left disappointed after he picked up a minor calf injury and was forced to miss out but Rene Gilmartin was introduced at half time. Malky Mackay had planned to select a completely different XI for each half but Aldred’s withdrawal meant Hodson stayed on the pitch for the second half.

It includes the names of some manuscript owners that the average Burnsian probably is not familiar with and also shows that the works of Burns have appealed to people from all walks of life who have either purchased his materials or inherited them. This is truly one of the most interesting articles I have read on Burns and was written by dear friend Patrick Scott. I have known Patrick since my early Burns days and he has proven to be a great friend in the truest sense of the word.
He is an unusual man – scholar, author, professor, speaker, educator, conversationalist, teacher, editor, husband, father and grandfather. He excels at everything he does and is as much at home with his colleagues at the University of South Carolina as he is with the common man in the streets. You can write it down in gold that if he tells you he will do something, it shall be done! Join me as we welcome Patrick back to the pages of Robert Burns Lives!.
