Proof positive – the Catholic Church is not Christian! It is a counterfeit. I wrote a newspaper editorial on the eve of saying the only bugs were in our garden But the ridiculous nonsense of “Global Warming” – now renamed “Climate Change” which covers all bases – grows ever more menacing, especially to freedom as governments roll out ever more restrictive legislation. We write about it in our book, Cults and Isms, True or False? For greenism is the new religion, or part of it. The Flat Earth theory is flattened — by an astronaut and thousands of Christian writers and scientists. Encounters with alien spacecraft allegedly parked by a local canal But the new found trend among the lunatic fringe to think the earth is flat, despite all evidence to the contrary, surpasses it all.

YES Natural & Organic Lubricant Reviews

That one single ideal was the main driving force for the CME of the GWR, Charles Benjamin Collett, who was naturally intent on pursuing the beliefs of his former governor, George Jackson Churchward, the brilliant engineer who initiated the succession of GWR locomotives by designing the prototype No ’40’ named as ‘North Star’ and built as an Atlantic The reason he decided on this wheel arrangement was for comparison purposes, having persuaded the GWR Board members that the French De Glehn 4-cylinder locomotives were far superior to our machines and furthermore made the case for purchasing 3 of those engines, including No ‘La France’ left which was used to haul the inaugural ‘Cornish Riviera Express’ in and continued to work the train for many years.

The Alfred De Glehn design was of a compound engine; high pressured inside cylinders driving the second axle, with low pressure outer assemblies motioning the first drive axle, a system recognised as ‘Divided Drive’ which Churchward adopted for ‘North Star’ and also copied the taper boiler design and replicated the Belpaire firebox, with the styling of the leading bogie also taken from the De Glehn ‘Locomotive Manual’. Thus ‘North Star’ was the starting point for the famous ‘Star’ class, paving the way for the superb ‘Castles’, which were soon found to be both economical and powerful locomotives; capable of handling the passenger expresses of the day.

Thus the Locomotive Committee of the directors appealed to the Civil Engineer to relax the limitation on axle loading, but found that any new structures were allowed 22 tons of loading for 4-cylinder engines; furthermore there were just 4 bridges that were in need of strengthening and the Bridge Stress Committee were requested to put the work in hand as soon as possible, as well as asking for an extra half a ton leeway; this was subsequently granted.

Begins by contrasting the action of the Duke of Sutherland who sank a considerable sum in financing parts of the Highland Railway with Sir William MacKenzie of Coul who forced the Skye line away from Strathpeffer and forced it to climb to Raven’s Rock.

It will be capable of building tramcars, suburban or inter-city trains and high-speed trains. There will be no trains during two short periods — 20 — 28 October and 16 — 24 February The massive new concourse was completed during a ten day closure of the station over the Christmas and New Year period and is as large as the Wembley football pitch. All fifteen platforms are linked together for the first time by the new concourse.

The revised layout extends to just before Copenhagen Tunnel through which there are still only four tracks.

“*BRUTALLY HONEST POST ALERT* Apparently, today is #WorldMenopauseDay (wtactualf!), so I’m using this as an excuse to talk about the Unspoken. In my experience, it’s probably still the biggest taboo in discussing our breast cancer treatment and its side-effects.

The same can be said for every single contributor to this site, of couse I take my hat off to everyone involved, for this site would be a lot poorer without them. In Derek’s case, the task of recording the individual histories of the ‘Britannia’ class locomotives has been a mammoth undertaking, and there have been times when the pair of us – just two bungling old geezers with a mutual love for trains and railways – were on our arthritic knees by the sheer size of it all.

So my hearty congratulations to him in completing the full histories of the following locomotives on this page Please note Nos are featured on the next page. Born in , Derek started train spotting with his brother Roger at the now-closed Monument Lane station, Birmingham, where he fondly remembers the ‘1 o’clock Brit’ on the 9. Since taking early retirement as a HGV Mechanic in , Derek’s knowledge of all things power-driven led him to making a start on correcting the many anomalies he found in books and magazines regarding the BR Class 7MT Britannias.

His research has taken him more than 3 years, and I was pleased he agreed to pass on his findings here. However, Derek’s main reservation was that, whilst the first group of Britannias are indeed very interesting, and in some cases diverse, the third batch of engines are somewhat mundane by comparison, and so whilst he felt confident of filling a page with information on say, Nos , it would be tricky to give the same result with to This is because the list of modifications diminished as they were put into the building programme and only half of these changes were required on later batches.

Network Rail plans to spend £5 billion on modernising the Great Western main line, its South Wales branch and other associated lines. The modernisation plans were announced at separate times but their development time-scales, during the second decade of the 21st century, overlap each other.

Mr Wood has been research and engineering executive director at the group’s “emissions solutions” division, based alongside the long-established Cummins diesel engine manufacturing plant in Darlington, County Durham, since April For nearly seven years before that he was research and engineering executive director at Huddersfield, West Yorkshire-based Cummins Turbo Technologies.

Both these operations are part of a global components division, headed by Tracy Embree, and encompassing electronics and fuel systems, turbochargers, filters and exhaust emissions control equipment used on many other engines as well as Cummins’ own.

Information on iconography from the Bibliokek Nationale Many Internet sites have been correctly accused of being crypto-Jewish, or written by trolls, or written by professional spooks, or just ignorantly biased to Jews. People unused to Jewish analyses may like my soft introduction, my own extremely incomplete list of ‘joff’ websites, Jews-off-the-radar, with my reasoning. I’ve tried to explain in what respects they are wrong, incomplete, dishonest, and evil. Many are shills for Jews, large numbers are scared to discuss Jewish wire-pulling, many are paid by Jews or Jewish pressure groups.

History. The earliest sign of human habitation is a foot-high (19 m) prehistoric tumulus in the grounds of Marlborough radiocarbon dating has found it to date from about BC. It is of similar age to the larger Silbury Hill about 5 miles ( km) west of the town. Legend has it that the Mound is the burial site of Merlin and that the name of the town comes from Merlin’s.

Recent radiocarbon dating has found it to date from about BC. Legend has it that the Mound is the burial site of Merlin [5] and that the name of the town comes from Merlin’s Barrow. More plausibly, the town’s name possibly derives from the medieval term for chalky ground “marl”—thus, “town on chalk”. The town’s motto is Ubi nunc sapientis ossa Merlini “Where now are the bones of wise Merlin”.

Further evidence of human occupation comes from the discovery in St Margaret’s Mead of the Marlborough Bucket, an Iron Age burial bucket made of fir wood with three iron hoops, a top bar and two handles; it also sports bronze bands decorated with human heads and mythical animals, and is now on display at the Wiltshire Museum in Devizes. In William the Conqueror assumed control of the Marlborough area and set about building a wooden motte-and-bailey castle , sited on the prehistoric mound.

This was completed in around Stone was used to strengthen the castle in around The first written record of Marlborough dates from the Domesday Book in The coins display the name of the town as Maerlebi or Maerleber. He also established the neighbouring Savernake Forest as a favourite royal hunting ground [9] and Marlborough castle became a Royal residence.
