Here yesterday, gone today. Came across a copy of David Jenkinson’s The Times always thought that young Michael must be a Grauniad type for 12 May wherein young Michael amazed at improved Manchester to Brighton service via Kensington Olympia and improvements to railway catering. Away from the railway feature he was surprised at how cheaply a Professor of Philosophy could be hired then and an advertisement from the Wallop School which brings out the very worst of Master Blakemore. Colour feature based upon publicity material produced by the Great Western Railway which combines elegant text with wonderful reproductions of contemporary colour material mainly from the s: The linking text notes that the publicity material is built around the Taunton to Minehead branch and is divided into three sections: East Anglian Class 47s. The class 47 had originally arrived in East Snglia on freight workings in but were soon allocated to the Norwich to London expresses.

Grantham (/ ˈ ɡ r æ n θ əm / GRAN-thəm) is a town in the South Kesteven district of Lincolnshire, straddles the London–Edinburgh East Coast Main Line and the River Witham and is bounded to the west by the A1 north–south trunk road. Grantham lies about 23 miles (37 km) south of the county town, the City of Lincoln and about 22 miles (35 km) east of Nottingham.
It appeared as early as in the Domesday Book in its present form of Grantham,  but was also recorded variously as Grandham, Granham and Graham. The place name element grand could possibly mean ” gravel “. The name of the town is the origin of the Scottish surname, now often used as a given name, Graham. At Little Gonerby a neolithic settlement site was discovered with finds of pottery and flints.
There have been a number of finds of flint and stone tools including palaeolithic hand-axes, from the Cherry Orchard Estate, to the north-east of the town centre, and from near North Lodge on the hill top south of Barrowby. Mesolithic flints have also been recovered from the Cherry Orchard Estate as well as from sites to the west of Great Gonerby To the north-east of the town centre a Bronze Age bucket and urn cemetery, with cremation burials and ploughed-out barrows , has been recorded.
Bronze Age flint scatters have also been found in several places, particularly on the higher ground near Barrowby. At Saltersford a Bronze Age ingot and a rapier were found.

The streamliner tipped over when it passed over a rut in the track as it was being towed to the start line. Triumph said rain meant it was not possible to create the required-consistency across the mile course necessary to undertake the attempt. A mile into the run the machine lost traction on the damp surface, veering off the steered path and tipping over on the course. Martin was confirmed to be “completely uninjured” and the record attempt was postponed once more.
Public perception and critical reception[ edit ] Reviewing Closer to the Edge, his breakthrough appearance,   Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian said: He had previously visited the museum in It featured his Merlin engine, three of his favourite motorcycles, and the gravity racer used in his Speed series.

His passion for the TT was ignited at age 16 with the invitation from Baz Kirk to return to the island. He hopes to win a TT before the event is banned for health and safety reasons. He is also hoping to acquire a Daimler engine from a Messerschmitt. He avoided a driving ban when on 18 points, being given another three in lieu of a ban, after the judge showed leniency due to the effect it would have on his livelihood, had he lost it.

Cornwall’s native name Kernow appeared on record.

The British language evolves in Dumnonia into what becomes the Cornish language. Britain gains independence from Rome.

Tonnage tons Hulk Originally a large ship used either as a transport or for carrying merchandise, particularly in the Mediterranean where hulks ranged up to about tons. It was contemporary with the carrack and occasionally described as such. In general, any large and unwieldy ship of simple construction with a rounded bow and stern was described as a hulk.
The sails were almost a relic of the Middle ages, while the hull was double ended, flat floored rather boxy type of affair, very good for carrying the maximum amount of cargo on the Yorkshire rivers and canals. A small cabin was located in the extreme stern. Lee boards were fitted and the mast could be lowered so that bridges could be negotiated. A heavy rail was carried round the stern and on this were carried a lifebelt or two, plus navigation lights.
Typically, they were 5 metres long, and 1.

The two elements of the illustration depict Adam and Eve and Abraham about to sacrifice Isaac. It is signed E. It was outlived by the later New Holland to Hull ferry illustration: Paul Hickman Up to the late nineteenth century, many people believed that their lives were ruled by supernatural forces. Their world was a mysterious place and there were those who preyed on it: These magical practitioners have remained fairly elusive from the pages of history but evidence for their activities and their influence can be drawn from many primary sources.

The 8 and the 12, the latter taking a circuitous route via Daubhill, Little Hulton, Walkden, Roe Green and Worsley taking a scheduled 55minutes against the rather tightly timed 38 minutes of the more direct 8. Quite apart from the fascinating stuff we saw and rode on the way up, across and back down again, the Stockport and Manchester Crossleys made a great impression, and so did the great variety of operators working into Manchester, but I remember being especially taken by those lovely Salford Daimlers with their straight staircases, destination-winder trunnions and the no-nonsense, upright Metro-Cammell bodies.
To have lasted so long with such rough treatment these wonderfully characterful vehicles must have been as solidly-built as they looked—or were the fitters kept busy? I bet someone knows! I read that Salford always put their newest buses on the 15, which ran to Piccadilly, to impress their neighbours “across the river”. This has now been superseded by Shudehill Bus Station, which is actually in Manchester, and the whole area around Victoria Bridge Street is being redeveloped.
And yes, I agree about “Arndale”! On the radiator subject I only ever remember the radiator was far forward and was informed at the time it was because of the longer engine. My first encounter with the forward entrance Leylands was on the 73 from Whitefield to Victoria, a pleasure to drive. Your epic trip from Reading to Grimsby via Salford sounds worthy of an article, describing route, rolling stock and how long it took!
Might we be hearing from you shortly? Given that the Daimlers had not only been in the fleet for 16 years by the time you started but for the majority of those years had been the bulk of the fleet and given newer Daimlers with preselector boxes had entered the fleet in the early s, I have to ask where the fault lay — bad maintenance or poor driver training after the departure of Charles Baroth?
From my experience of the Salford ones I would imagine them to be the full at No matter what training you give a driver, if he wants to ignore it he will.
