Re: Oh What A Fool I Am

....Which itself was very short-sighted on the part of central government as there could have been numerous opportunities for profiting from railway assets.

As I often say, the cheapest solution...

Re: Oh What A Fool I Am

Look at what the private operators have done to Kings Cross and St Pancras. They were real *crap holes in the days of BR.

Re: Oh What A Fool I Am

I drove back with our daughter to Uni last Sunday. She isn't happy driving the whole 200 miles but dropped me off at Stafford station.

It cost me 22.90 to get home on the train from Stafford to...

Re: Buyer's Remorse

I really don't know, but I don't think the default settings provide anything like the best results on my Z3. These things often improve with firmware and software updates too.

It is a pity that...

Re: Electric Cars - Safety ?

The majority of sidings and bay platforms have disappeared over the past fifty years or so which makes it difficult to accommodate any branch line traffic.

Replacing these sidings and platforms...

Re: eBay saga

eBay is fine for selling unwanted items, but works out very expensive if you use it to sell merchandise on a commercial basis. Amazon is even more expensive.

Just to rub salt in eBay insists that...

Re: Buyer's Remorse

There is a clear difference in image quality and it seems your local customer service is little better. Sadly the mobile phone industry has become very complacent as so many people just want 'the...

Re: Electric Cars - Safety ?

You would think there would be plenty of opportunities for opening up preserved lives for commuter use. There are moves, for example, to reopen the line from Pickering to Malton and York, but it...

Re: Electric Cars - Safety ?

I did find a 'free' PDF version, but you have to sign up to the website which put me off.

'Free' rarely means 'free' these days. :(

I shall put it in my wishlist and hope one finds its way in...

That would also advertise the fact that you have poor taste and probably nothing worth nicking! :D

Re: Electric Cars - Safety ?

Tempting, very tempting, but pricey at 47! :)

I see a copy sold on eBay recently for 12 though.

There is an excellent second-hand book shop in Barney so I will have a look there next time I...

Re: Electric Cars - Safety ?

The Disused Stations Website (http://www.disused-stations.org.uk/) doesn't use Facebook. Have a look; it is fascinating.

Regarding the Belah Viaduct I understand that even the scrap men didn't...

Re: Electric Cars - Safety ?

I already have, and I have an anorak to prove it! :D

Oddly enough the Disused Railway Lines Facebook page popped up when I was visiting an Organists page. There is a connection! :o

Re: Electric Cars - Safety ?

Was that the line to Barney and Kirkby Stephen via Stainmore Summit Richard? That must have been a fantastic journey; all assuming that you could see out of the carriage windows in those days! :)

Re: Electric Cars - Safety ?

I don't think governments of any colour have properly thought out transport policy since WWII.

Beeching shut down a third of our railway system in 1963 and put much of that beyond further use by...

Re: Electric Cars - Safety ?

That may well be true for overnight charging, but you could have a long wait at the motorway services if you choose to recharge at the wrong time.

Re: Social media and mental health

All ages, and young people in particular are constantly being bombarded with mind-warping information from all angles in ways that simply didn't exist twenty years ago.

Re: Electric Cars - Safety ?

Never mind electric cars themselves, we also seem to be ignoring the environmental costs of generating the electricity needed to charge them.

Given present grid capacity it is likely that older,...

Re: Social media and mental health

I can never understand the logic of Instagram, (or is it SnapChat?) where you only have ten seconds to read the message before it is deleted forever unless you screenshot it.

Re: Future of batteries?

Southern Region manages perfectly well with a 750 Volt DC third rail, with very much bigger motors than a Prius. Their current has to travel some distance too!

Re: Future of batteries?

Current drives electric motors, not voltage. Voltage x Current = Watts.

I have never really looked into the Prius but I fail to understand the logic of using a 350 Volt battery. Admittedly the...

Re: Social media and mental health

This is very true. Apple has been careful to cultivate this image, aided by the millions of unpaid Apple Acolytes who are members of this particular cult.
