On January 1st , the former ‘Big Four’ railway companies: The rest was made up of service engines and Departmental locomotives. Following nationalisation in , six new BR Regions were formed, their new boundaries corresponding closely to the lines of the former ‘Big Four’ railway companies. As a result, many locomotives from an operational standpoint worked beyond their arbitrary Regions, so in many ways it is meaningless to classify any particular class of locomotive as belonging to any one of the six Regions during the transition from steam. For example, it was not unusual for the Stanier ‘Black 5’ and in particular the new BR Standard classes, to be found working hundreds of miles from the Region they were initially allocated. I have recently been contacted by Colin Mason, who currently works and lives in Japan. Colin was born in the North East and spent his grammar school years living in Corbridge, Northumberland. He has started research for a plan to build a model of Corbridge station between Newcastle and Hexham in its heyday of the s through into the 40s when it actually had a significant level of traffic serving local freight, 3 timber yards, a gasworks and so on.

North of Folly Lane bridge. A shunter which would at Dallam shed. I have many happy memories of my grandfather and the railway. He was a driver, and as a child of about years old I went down to Dallam shed with him. He also took me to work with him on a number of occasions after he gave up main line driving. He was a lad that rode round the town in the early hours on his bike with a long pole. It has to be said he was glad to see the back of steam. Heaven for a small boy.

The dress is black tie. All serving and retired Fusilier Officers are encouraged to attend what promises to be another splendid evening. As with all projects of this type it is impossible to please all of the people all of the time. There will be those who do not like the design of the memorial, the size the shape and so on. Where I am sure there is common ground is that our Fusiliers who have lost their lives deserve a lasting and fitting memorial at the Arboretum and the small stone that is there currently does need replacing.
An experienced war memorial stonemason has been appointed; he has previously produced work at the National Arboretum and at the Somme and is highly respected for the quality of his work.

Click to enlarge Gulf Islander John McGillivray is another front-loading fan who has chosen a comfy, traditional randonneuse that will also serve well as a tourer and backroad island rambler. I looked at a lot of custom builders, but kept coming back to the Pelican because of its traditional style, features, cost, availability, and colour amongst other pluses. The seat and head tube angles are both 73 degrees respectively, making for great ride characteristics. I decided on mm wheels rather than B for convenience.
None of the bike shops around me carry B tires or tubes, so I would either have to order them online, or go down to Victoria to buy them. The bigger tire width absorbs a lot of road shock, making a very comfortable ride.

Was the LMS too big? Frederic Stansfield In his reply to my earlier letter about the size of the LMS September issue , Doug Landau November issue makes many interesting points describing the company’s engineering innovations. But two of Landau’s examples show how engineering developments within the LMS were subordinated to business issues. LMS management’s rejection of electrification proposals, because of insufficient return on capital, is unsurprising when neither the scheme nor the one linked London with a major city such as Birmingham.
Also, the belt repair system to which Landau refers represented the development in Britain of “scientific management” techniques. As he indicates, this system had the business aim of reducing repair times and costs. Letter writer would agree in general with Landau’s observation that the Southern Railway was the most forward looking of the ‘Big Four’. However, in my previous letter I compared the LMS not with its British contemporaries but with other European railways, which received more government support.
Britain’s railways, including the LMS, did receive very limited government finance in the s. Landau does not address the question ‘Was the LMS too big? The company’s business failure to follow-up engineering developments, such as electrification and main line diesel locomotives, would suggest the opposite. The LMS was if anything too small to attract the money needed to implement its engineers’ technical innovations.

The anonymous Ballad of Bosworth Field says that “in Newarke laid was hee, that many a one might looke on him” —almost certainly a reference to the collegiate Church of the Annunciation of Our Lady of the Newarke ,  a Lancastrian foundation on the outskirts of medieval Leicester. In , ten years after the burial, Henry VII paid for a marble and alabaster monument to mark Richard’s grave. The site of the friary was sold to two Lincolnshire property speculators and was later acquired by Robert Herrick, the Mayor of Leicester and eventual uncle of the poet Robert Herrick.
The Lord Mayor Herrick built a mansion close to Friary Lane, on a site now buried under the modern Grey Friars Street, and turned the rest of the land into gardens. The antiquary Christopher Wren father of Christopher Wren the architect recorded that Herrick erected a monument on the site of the grave in the form of a stone pillar three feet 1 m high carved with the words, “Here lies the Body of Richard III, Some Time King of England.
If Speed had been to Herrick’s property he would surely have seen the commemorative pillar and gardens, but instead he reported that the site was “overgrown with nettles and weeds”  and there was no trace of Richard’s grave. The map of Leicester drawn by Speed incorrectly shows Greyfriars where the former Blackfriars was, suggesting that he had looked for the grave in the wrong place. A coffin certainly seems to have existed; John Evelyn recorded it on a visit in , and Celia Fiennes wrote in that she had seen “a piece of his tombstone [sic] he lay in, which was cut out in exact form for his body to lie in; it remains to be seen at ye Greyhound [Inn] in Leicester but is partly broken.
