Hi Martin,

Yes, looks like you slipped up on the Cleehill map :D Must check your methodology next time....

Here is Bucknell now ( well 2009 actually ) courtesy of Google.


Must have been an active goods trade with the goods shed ( still there ) and a travelling crane for the timber yard .



Always surprised to find that the lines around here were LNWR.

Rob

P.S. What about captions on the slideshow ? If all the pics in yours had been new to us there would have been many questions asked about locations.

I'm just working on that as we speak. It's actually quite tricky to get the captions to fade in and out long enough to be readable, but then leave the image uncluttered.

I don't think I made it clear enough that that first video was just a trial play with the AV software to see what I could do with it, and more importantly to see how many cries of "what a load of rubbish" went up. :)

Having been encouraged by the response (I posted the link on RMweb too), and enjoying being a bit creative, I will now spend some time creating something a bit more polished. At least it is keeping me away from that damned OSM, which would take over my life if I let it. :)

Martin.

What a great playground they had - summer school holidays 1969, in the sunshine. :)

I'm now fairly confident that this was No.2 incline at Maen-offeren. Based on my hazy recollection of a day 50 years ago, but now also finding this showing the twin power poles still in position (11 years ago):

Hi Martin,

Yes, they are lovely pics.

The wagons are certainly similar to many of the Festiniog area types from pictures I have seen. The pictures imply they usually ran with maybe one out of every 3 or 4 with a brake fitted.

Is this the top of the incline here ?


Were the rails at the top of an incline secured in any special way to prevent them slipping down ?


Rob

Yes. If you click on the map on that page it will swap to the earlier 25K mapping which shows the track still in place.

Here's my 1969 view down the incline for comparison:



And here's another one of the drum house which confirms the match with the previous Geograph photo (only just found this one):



I have several more taken the same day, although the quality is a bit variable. I will post them all soon.

Here's the incline in 1899:

Hi Martin,

Thanks for that. We are very lucky to have such photos for you to share and appreciate and the internet resources to tie them all together. If only the development of the photographic process had happened earlier.......and been in more widespread use.

Rob Manchester wrote:P.S. What about captions on the slideshow ? If all the pics in yours had been new to us there would have been many questions asked about locations.Hi Rob,

I have now added captions to the slideshow. Press the ENTER key to toggle a scrollable list of captions on and off:

 http://85a.uk/photos/

I have also added a few more pics, and made a few other changes.

Click the video to stop and start while reading the caption list. We don't have a streaming media server, so it's necessary to wait until the show has run through once before the frame slider will work properly.

If it doesn't fit your screen, try pressing F11. There is also a full-screen option on the bottom right.

If the ENTER key doesn't work, try clicking on the video first.

If the captions are not working on mobile devices, they can be opened in a separate page tab here:

  http://85a.uk/photos/fresh_air_captions.php

The caption list includes OS grid references. If you copy them, you can paste them into the search box at:

 https://osmaps.ordnancesurvey.co.uk

I have entered the full 5-figure grid references, which is a bit daft because they read to the nearest metre. But I found rounding them to the usual 3-figures produced some silly results, placing me in the middle of a canal or on the wrong side of the tracks. :(

I have changed the music, but I can't find anything better which is free to use. Suggestions for such welcome.

cheers,

Martin.

Hi Martin,

Thanks for adding the captions and grid refs, both are helpful. Some nice new pics I haven't seen before too.

I don't like the music :( but we all like different things which is fair enough.  What was the music used on the original version ?

The shot of Worcester depot was taken from the Tunnel Junction side judging by the position of the cathedral. Do you have any pictures of the wagon sheet facility or wagon repair works - there is one in a Russell Great Wagon book ( which I have all of ) and I found another couple but anything else would be great.

The pit sheave memorial picture is almost identical to one I took a while back. I will post mine if I can find it. BTW Shapeways now sell sheaves for anybody modelling a mine.

Rob

Hi Rob,

Sorry to confuse you. That B&W pic was actually a colour neg original from the mid 1980s, not from 1969 as the other B&W pics. By then I suspect the wagon works was long gone. It was taken from the steps of Tunnel Junction Signal Box. I can't remember why I thought it was worth converting to greyscale. :?

Here are some others of the area taken at the same time, scanned from prints:

 http://85a.co.uk/images/tunnel_junc_pics.jpg

(large image, click link)

If you can see anything in the background which might be useful, I will search out the negs and scan them properly, and maybe find some others.

The new music tracks came from the YouTube catalogue of free music. I don't much like it either, and most of the catalogue is even worse. Unfortunately any music of reasonable quality requires a paid-for licence to use.

The original music track was supplied as a default with the AV software, and has the memorable name of PT_286154.mp3

You can hear it again on their promo video at:

 https://www.youtube.com/embed/wRz43Yc3r8w?rel=0&autoplay=1

cheers,

Martin.

Hi Martin,

Thanks for the music info :)

I should have been more clear about the wagon and sheet shops. I didn't really think you would have been around when they were active and in use. Just wondered if you had taken any from the other end of the yard area facing north from around Tolladine Road. Just looking for ideas for future layouts - a wagon repair shop is ideal as an excuse for for lots of different wagons in various states of decay.

Tunnel junction box looks to have suffered a mishap - an errant wagon in the siding maybe ? Your picture seems to show what looks like a concrete 'ram raid' device in front of the rebuilt brickwork. Here is the box in 2015.

If you hadn't chopped the DMU off the side of the B&W shot on the slide show I would have known it was at least late 70's as the livery is blue and grey :D

Rob

Rob Manchester wrote: Tunnel junction box looks to have suffered a mishap - an errant wagon in the siding maybe ?Hi Rob,

The siding is actually the trap spur on the exit crossover from the shed:



I recall some time in 60s or 70s a loco was too eager to get off the shed, and delivered the buffer stop into the signal box locking room instead. Someone will know the details -- perhaps "The Stationmaster" on RMweb?

I don't remember taking any pics around the Tolladine Road area at that time, but I will have a look through my negs.

cheers,

Martin.

Hi Martin

I'm in the middle of that lot! And have to go out shortly to collect the Xmas order from Morrisons. Ugh!

Actually saw the sun yesterday, I reckon for only the 4th time in the last 2 months, most of which have been rain. Here's a pic looking over the Ystwyth valley from the Arch, east of Devil's Bridge, after the sun had set:


Here's a bit of sun on the 30th November, Craig Goch dam in the Elan valley:

 
And on the 23rd November, a train approaching the Dysynni Bridge north of Tywyn:

Hi Nigel,

Thanks for those. :)

To see Craig Goch overflowing as early in the season as the end of November shows what a wet autumn we had. It makes a great sight in full flow in the sunshine.

I like the Dysynni Bridge pic. Low lighting like that can transform the everyday into a memorable image.

Your pics remind me that I must get out again soon. This was on the last decent walk, back in November -- by the time I stopped for my cheese and pickle sandwich it was raining!

Same here, but it's been miserable weather for most of the last couple of months. Grabbed a walk before Xmas lunch at the Arch, forestry east of Devil's Bridge (same spot as earlier pic); the cloud was down and drizzle soon set in:



Much the same today, will probably try the beach.

...my crepe myrtle at my back gate just in flower with buds in the centre of the picture.   Normally it produces a profusion of flowers during summer which just about last into early winter.  The long hot spell in early summer seemed to put it out of kilter and it hardly bloomed through summer but seems to have started now.   Today's temperature had to be into double figures, Celcius.

Thanks Jim. I didn't notice anything in bloom when I ventured up the garden path this morning, but I will take a closer look tomorrow.

Of course, if I do find anything I won't have the faintest idea what it is. My horticultural knowledge doesn't go beyond brown stuff and green stuff.

My late wife was the horticultural expert around here but I have learned how to do laborious searches through web sites which expect you to know about all the terms applicable to petals and leaves. :D

The crepe myrtle came from cuttings taken from a bush in a neighbouring garden.  I had seen it in full bloom when walking the dog and thought I would have some for my garden.  Permission was sought for the cuttings. :D   I found the name of the plant much later. :D

Sorry guys about the plant ID: I think that what you have is a tree mallow [Malva arborea aka Lavatera arborea] rather than the crepe myrtle [Lagerstroemia genus], which is subtropical.

"It is theorised that lighthouse keepers may have spread the plant to some British islands for use as a poultice and to treat burns, an occupational hazard. Thought to have been used as an alternative to toilet paper." Wikipedia entry on Lavatera. Check out the pictures of the leaves, which are apparently edible.

Interesting to note that it is biennial which would explain one of my plants dying back.  But the cuttings came from a long established bush which looks as though it is perennial.

Yesterday's walk was very muddy, and the sunshine wasn't in as plentiful supply as the Met Office had led me to believe. But it was a relief to discover that the sun does still exist.

Change of weather today -- sunshine and a bit warmer. So computer off, boots on. :)

In fact it was several degrees warmer -- I went out wrapped up and with a flask of soup, I ended up walking in shirtsleeves and would have preferred iced lemonade! Tomorrow will of course be the exact opposite.

Looks spring-like, already. Today I managed to leave my place for the first time since last tuesday; the drive finally unfroze. Too busy restocking for pics, but tomorrow is a possible.

Sunny again today. :)

Anyone know why I took this?

Me neither. So why do I like it? One more for the WDYTTOF* folder. There are plenty in there.

What is this strange "sun" thing? Not much around here. But yesterday in desperation headed down to Aberaeron harbour, somewhere I'd been meaning to visit for some time and managed a few pics in spite of the flat lighting:

My version of the folks that live on the hill (off to the right side in the distance), sort of snowing day, but the air is fresh! Lots of old oaks with interesting character...

This evening's report from a muddy field:


camera at SO 78797 68417

Today's weather didn't quite match up to the promises from the Met Office. Fog lasted into the afternoon, and the sun remained quite hazy after that. Tomorrow is promised to be better.

My route today took me along a short stretch of main road. That's no place to be on foot on a Sunday afternoon if you value your life. It's supposed to be the King's Highway accessible to all. Some drivers today obviously hadn't heard. If the Tiggers are looking for some policies, how about providing a safe walking space alongside all main roads? They'd get my vote. :)

Enough of that. Back to work. 1. put fish pie in oven. 2. make map video for John.

cheers,

Martin.

A miserable wet day today, so I'm looking back through my photos from nicer days.

I have just posted this one in the Radio Paradise topic.

Here it is again, with the camera verticals corrected. Unfortunately that means it won't sensibly fit 16:9 format, so no good for RP.

Just keeping any National Trust workers happy -- I know you don't build wonky stiles.  :)
