Re: pjv101 website

Doesn't work for me:

The webpage at http://www.pjv101.net/index.htm might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.

Re: Crane Spacing from Track

True, but like Mark, I believe that the VR would have specified the distance for each type of crane.

Re: Whitfield Station Diagram

The ausnarrowauge yahoo group has a copy of the official drawing of the engine shed in the files section. There are many posts discussing Whitfield, including some discussion about thew water tank.

Re: Whitfield Station Diagram

Hopefully you might be able to find a copy of that book. I am trying various sources for the drawings you want - I might have the loco shed. The goods shed might be a standard design (although which one?) but the water tank is not (to my knowledge) a standard design. I've never seen a drawing of one...

Re: Computerisation

How old are you? I am wondering whether this is a problem with modern day education ignoring the fundamentals of maths. A division results in a quotient and a remainder. When you divide 251 by 23 you get 10 (in whole numbers). The remainder is what is left over - 23 times 10 = 230, the original numb...

Re: Semaphore signals circa 1918

I have a vague recollection of being told by a signalman (in the mid-1960s) that kerosine signal lamps lasted longer that one might think because the banging of the arm and spectacle plate as it returned to danger shook the light and resulted in the filaments being broken.
