I have just signed up to this forum, as it seemed to be interesting!
When I have had a better look inside, then I'll get around to posting my two penn'orth!

In the meantime, all the best!

I have been popping in and out for sometime now, and I was wondering if anybody is interested in how I spend my working hours?
If no-one objects, I might add a few posts to this thread on that subject.

Since I not had any adverse comment, here is the promised information about how I spend some of my working time....I'll try to remember to add updates!

Please note: as a result of the sudden disappearance of fotopic on the 9th March 2011, a selection from the 800+ images – from two galleries – are now hosted on flickr.

http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N06/sets/

Currently there are three sets for current work (Saltburn Cliff Lift, NER 70 and the Miller Fifer), a further seventeen sets for past projects and another six sets covering other subjects.
As yet; the image titles, tags and captions (descriptions) are still a work in progress, and I will be adding others shortly – as and when I find them!

The concentration of our efforts on the Saltburn Cliff Lift project had meant that work on other aspects had been postponed until the lift was re-opened to the public on 22nd April 2011. As that milestone has now been successfully passed, we can extend our attention to other matters, including updating websites, including flickr.

Recent flickr updates include the cliff lift:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N06/sets/72157626203331345/
and some further uploads of material that was previously on fotopic.

Thanks for looking – please explore my photostream, if you click on some images then that lets me know what is popular, and feel free to comment!

Bowes Railway... now there's a thing. I was working up there at the time of the arson attack, in fact it happened the night before my last day there [the two events were not related !]

Came in in the morning and found cops everywhere, soon to be followed by the press and local TV [there was a clip from the news report up on Youtube at one time, may still be there].


And if anyone wants to know whatI've been doing recently...

Flickr updates to Mid-May 2011

Over the last few days, I have been able to spend time sorting out images and I have retrieved about 150 images that I thought had disappeared into the ether. These have been uploaded to the Flickr account, and I have titled, captioned and tagged them. This brings me up to just over 700 images, and I hope that I have got all the important ones – if I find any more lurking around…….

Currently there are three sets for current work (which includes the Saltburn Cliff Lift, NER 70, and the Miller Fifer), a further twenty-two sets for twenty-eight past projects, and another six sets for additional images. This covers the wide range of projects carried out in the period from October 2006 to the present time.

As we are starting some new projects in the very near future, I will add sets for them as soon as I have the images.....

To help find the most recently uploaded images within the sets - I have added *New* to the title of the extra sets, and *Updated* to those sets with additional images. These notations will remain posted for about ten days or so.

As my photostream displays in the order of uploading, and I am adding images as I locate them, the image chronolgical order does not match......please note that some of the EXIF dates are very wrong, even some from the camera with the currently right date! This will be attended to shortly…..

Thanks for looking – please explore my sets and photostream, and click on some images! Then I’ll know what is popular (or not!)

Mid – May Updates.

Just dropped by to post that since I have re-uploaded almost all the images, at last I have been able to revise all the links on my ‘homepage’ website. As a by-product of that I have reworked the current and past project pages. No doubt there will be a few more amendments and lost images to find and sort out……

Late May updates.

Recent updates are mainly to the flickr site, although there have been a couple of minor edits to my homepage. There are still a few changes to make, but some more details are needed before that can be done.
Most of the new images are to the NER70 and Miller Fifer sets, with a few others as well. Also a new set “Steel Underframe” has been added - these images have just recently been supplied by the people who fabricated the WHHR underframes some years ago.

Thanks for looking – please explore, and click on some images! Please comment, here or there, if you want.

Flickr updates early June 2011

Yesterday I posted some more images of current progress with the NER70 restoration; and a few of the Chip Van taken during the recent visit to Spennymoor. I will also have a link to a short video filmed during the event to post quite soon. There are some additional images of model furniture and I’ve replaced one tiny image of the B5 traction engine with a slightly better one.

Enjoy! The link is in my signature.

The link does not appear to directly link to an album? But that said it does lead to 1001 things to restore which is a great album.

Flickr updates in the last days of June 2011

Over the couple of days I have been adding images to my photostream. The main area of attention during the past week or so has been the building of the Aveling & Porter awning (or canopy) although work is still progressing on the Miller and NER70.
http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N06/5882753112/in/photostream

There is a new set “Film Units” which will include most of the various teams who have visited the workshop to watch us at work, as well as filming coverage of some of our products at work. I hope to be adding more to this shortly.
Additionally, I have posted a few more “backdated” images – this process is almost complete as there are now only a few still missing, as I have looked in most of the usual places.
Unfortunately, the unveiling of our major new work project has had to be postponed for a little while; I am hoping to do so during July, so watch this space – as they say!

The link in my signature will take you to my “sets” page, so please enjoy exploring….
Thanks for looking

Early July Updates

I have just updated my homepage as the go-ahead has just been given for our newest project, the restoration – for operation on the Pockerley Waggonway – of the Forcett Coach; otherwise known as Stockton & Darlington No.179. Technically this is third class, but it was part of a rake of carriages, built for market day services and is rather basic. The link is to a sample image in the set for this project:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N06/5916103562/in/set-72157627139592710

Work is progressing nicely on the other projects – that is; the Aveling & Porter steam roller awning, NER70 and the Miller Fifer. Several updates for these should be added quite soon, as I want to make sure that I have the best images of the recent work to upload.

Thanks for looking, and please enjoy exploring my photostream…..

Mid July Updates

I have just dropped by to say that most of the extra images promised last time have now been uploaded to the sets for current projects. Also, we were invited to the official opening of Davy’s Coal-fired chip shop at Beamish on the 14th July, and took some pictures of the proceedings. http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N06/5941419114/in/photostream

I invite you to have a look around my flickr site……

Late July Updates - 20th July 2011

Yesterday I added a few more images of current work, to keep things up to date. In a couple of days I shall be able to do the same again, as the various projects are progressing! When we took up the floorboards, we found a minor problem with the Forcett coach……

October 2011 UPDATES:

For a number of reasons I have not posted about recent additions to my flickr photostream since 2011 July 21. However, several updates had been made between then (19/7/11) and now (11/10/11) totaling 47 images. Projects covered by these are Miller Fifer, the Forcett Coach and the Aveling and Porter stream roller canopy. As sometimes happens, a few images from further back in time have also been uploaded. This means I am spoilt for choice of an image to linkback ! So I’ll have several!
Miller Fifer: http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N06/6214820174/in/photostream
Forcett : http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N06/6214822406/in/photostream
A&P : http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N06/6128453470/in/photostream/
Please enjoy a meander into my photostream, have a click, comment or even select a favourite. I have added some galleries as well, these have other peoples images…..

Thanks for looking.

Start of December 2011 UPDATES:

Although I have been adding to my flickr during November, for various reasons I have not posted much anywhere since Mid-October despite uploading approaching 150 images. However, quite a major part of these recent uploads have been largely un-related to normal work subjects – there have been quite a significant number of images related to Ben and Harry (the set descriptions will explain the details……)
Ben:http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N06/6401597235/in/photostream Harry:http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N06/6302393891/in/photostream
Hopefully service should be back to normal now, and we are waiting to get on with some new work. In the meantime, work is continuing on the Miller Fifer, NER70 and the Forcett Coach. See http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N06/6401511465/in/set-72157627139592710 for a sample.

If you would like a little light reading, try the December 2011 issue of “Old Glory” – it has an illustrated article profiling Stanegate Restorations and Replicas.

Please - enjoy a meander into my photostream, have a click, add a comment or maybe select a favourite (or several). I have added some galleries as well; these have other peoples’ images…..
Thanks for looking.
