Potpourri #1015

It must be the snow and cold weather, as it is also the time for central heating failures.  So the last few days have been occupied by getting the church heating fixed, before the building freezes solid.  I suppose that I have had time for modelling, but heating issues have rather monopolised my thinking.

But I did come across this video from the usually excellent Jago Hazzard.  Another one with a bit of a Minories theme, really.

Tidemills level crossing: Woman lies on tracks for photo

This caught my eye, as I did a flood assessment for the Tidemills nature reserve next to the railway.  I hasten to add that I didn’t lie on the railway when crossing the line….

The Southern double-deck EMUs were an interesting oddity.  They were very clever, but just didn’t work in the rather limited British loading gauge.  Here are a couple of good videos of these fun units – they are trying to preserve one coach…..

On the Minories theme again, a fine picture of Cannon Street, post-WW2…..

In contrast, a bucolic rural scene at Horsmunden….
