Early May 2012 UPDATES:

Since my last updates, during April, I have been posting more images to the flickr account. I have done this in several stages; however, by yesterday I had added somewhere in the region of forty images. I have also updated my homepage, a further update is due very soon……
Mostly they are work related – the first link specifically shows further work to the Forcett Coach, the next one is the Miller Fifer, which is due a few extra images as we have reached a milestone – the engine runs! Which, if it will stop raining, will be photographed……..but there are a few other subjects, as well.

If you visit the ‘Sets’ index page, the *new* and *updated* markers are in the appropriate set titles, as yet I have not added markers to the images themselves – I am using the ‘date uploaded’ marker instead.

Please – feel free to splash around in my photostream, let me know what you spot by having a click or three. If you are a flickr member – you will be able add a comment or maybe even select a favourite (or several). There are some galleries as well; these have other peoples’ images…..I have posted remarks as to why I added the selected images.
Thanks for looking.

I see the Willaim Riley lifeboat is one of the historic vessels taking part in
the Jubilee flotilla on the Thames at the weekend.

Quite right, well spotted!

"William Riley" was in there.....and the crew rowed from above Barnes Bridge to the Muster, then to Tower Bridge and finally got out at Soth dock.
A very long day, and the rain poured down as they got to Tower Bridge.

E2A - In the near future I have a few images to upload....but to be going on with, I've added a couple to the WR-aloat gallery.

June 2012 updates

Postby StoneRoad » 27 Jun 2012, 19:44

Many Apologies for the lateness of this post – all should become clear(ish) with the contents
Mid – late June 2012 UPDATES:

Since my last update, back in mid May, I have been uploading images to the flickr account. I have done this in several stages; however, by yesterday I had added somewhere in the region of forty images. I have also updated my homepage, to include the details of new projects……

The major item of interest is that the Foxfield Railway based North Staffordshire Railway Rolling Stock Restoration Trust (NSRRSRT) have commissioned Stanegate Restorations and Replicas to return NSR127 to operational condition. The trust have supplied an underframe and we will rebuild the body…..the Staffordshire Environmental Fund have provided a substantial grant towards the cost. Images uploaded so far are the delivery and some of the ‘before’ ones. More will follow as work progresses
NSR127 :http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N06/7186934401/in/set-72157630056015073/

Most of the new images are work related – the first link specifically shows further work to the Forcett Coach, and there has been more work recently….. the next one is the Miller Fifer, showing the engine running! Followed by a shot of the Sentinel cab (again, this is further advanced than seen here) and there are a few other subjects, as well.
Forcett :http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N06/7261970594/in/set-72157627139592710/
Miller :http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N06/7263766950/in/set-72157626203069641/
And another one of Ben, doing his best as morale and entertainments manager!
http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N06/7372153092/in/set-72157628026767272/
I’m hoping to be able to upload quite a few more images very soon – so please check back…….
If you visit the ‘Sets’ index page, the *new* and *updated* markers are in the appropriate set titles, as yet I have not added markers to the images themselves – I am using the ‘date uploaded’ marker instead.

Please – feel free to plodge in my photostream, you can click on things that interest you to get the ‘on black’ version, or for a larger image. If you are a flickr member – you will be able add a comment or maybe even select a favourite (or several). There are several galleries as well; these have other peoples’ images…..I have posted remarks as to why I added the selected images. The most recent are of “William Riley” in the Jubilee Thames Pagaent

Many, Many Apologies for the lack of recent (!) updates – the last one was months ago !
I’ll not bore you with the details of the reasons; it is more than a bit complicated. Suffice it to say that posting updates has not been that high a priority, although I’ve continued to add images to the flickr photostream, showing work in progress on various projects as well as a range of other subjects.

Up to November 2012 UPDATES :

Since my last update, back in mid June, I have been uploading images to the flickr account. I have done this in several stages; however, by 14th November I had added somewhere in the region of 300 images. I have also updated my homepage, to include the details of new projects……

Progress is being made on NSR127 : http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N06/8186433796/in/set-72157630056015073 Please note :- There are some more images of the latest work to be uploaded shortly.
Work continues on S&D179 – recently the scumbling has been progressed. Re-assembly will follow shortly. Forcett :http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N06/8186439918/in/set-72157627139592710
The Sentinel Steam Waggon cab and roof have been built, painted and delivered. http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N06/8132105492/in/set-72157629374808848 We are looking forward to seeing the finished vehicle on display in the future.
And another one of Ben : demostrating his lifejacket – quite the sea-dog !

Up to Early January 2013 UPDATES :

Since my last update, back in late November, I have been uploading images to the flickr account. I have done this in several stages; however, by the 2nd January I had added somewhere in the region of 65 images. I had also updated my homepage, to include the details of new projects……

I would like to pass on my best wishes for the coming year – have a good one. For me, at least, last year has been more than a little complicated……, here is an image of Ben, looking a bit like I felt at times in 2012.
http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N06/6653234399/in/set-72157631812967739

Project reports :-
Progress is being made on NSR127 : http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N06/8338470635/in/set-72157630056015073/ Please note :- these are some more images of the latest work, just uploaded. Other work has included new droplights http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N06/8221189623/in/set-72157630056015073/

The Classic Ski Boat has been receiving some attention to the in-board engine and gearbox (Volvo Penta) and we temporarily “rebuilt” the structure, partly to check that we did still have everything to hand and partly to make a decision on some of the next stage(s) in the work. http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N06/8222267836/in/set-72157626673180348/

A few other images have been uploaded recently…….this one is not quite as it seems, there is a strong clue if you look carefully ! http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N06/8267703780/in/set-72157626430215215/ makes a change from most of the weather this year.

I’m hoping to be able to upload quite a few more images very soon – so please check back…….

Early - Mid February 2013 Updates :

Since my last update, back in early January, I have been uploading images to my flickr account. I have added somewhere in the region of 30 images, there are some more to upload…. Also I need to update my homepage, to include the details of new projects……
We have has some “interesting” weather just recently....... http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N ... 430215215/

Project reports :-
More progress has been made on NSR127 : Repairs to the side modules has become a production line system ! http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N ... 056015073/ The droplight kits are now ready and waiting for their glazing. The timber has been delivered for the new doors and component production has been started.
Work continues on S&D179 - the Forcett coach: The seats have been re-built and various small fettling tasks are underway, such as re-fitting the hand-brake gear. Updated Images to follow so this link is to an older view http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N ... 7139592710
A few other images have been uploaded recently…including a reet wass camera….for non-speakers of the mackem dialect; that means very big camera – see: VPC There are a couple of extra images to upload about this ….. http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N ... 716940461/

We have a couple of new projects in the pipeline, and I hope to have images (and to have done my homepage updates) within a few days……so please check back !
In other news, there will be another EHSI trainee starting a placement at Stanegate Restorations in March 2013.
The *new* and *updated* markers are in the appropriate set titles, but not every set is in a collection.

Please – feel free to plodge around in my photostream, you can click on things that interest you to get the larger image, or the ‘on black’ version. Should you be another flickr member then you will be able add a comment or maybe even select a favourite (or several). I’ve just been looking at my stats – the number of favourited images is trailing the ones commented on by 40 (340 to 370). I have a number of galleries as well; these have other peoples’ images…..generally, I have noted why I included them.

Thanks for looking.

March 2013 plus early April Updates :

Since my last update, back in mid February, I have been uploading images to my flickr account. I had added somewhere in the region of 115 images in March (quite a few of these were recently retrieved from the remains of fotopic; thus they are well out of sequence!), and another 30 to date – and there are some more to upload…. Also I need to update my homepage, to include the details of a couple of new projects……
We have had some “interesting” weather just recently…..but at last some signs of spring have appeared…. http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N ... 430215215/

Project reports :-
Distinct increase in progress has been made on NSR127 : Repairs and work on the cills, floor supports, both “gable “ ends and all six side modules have been completed, and the corner modules are now under repair. http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N ... 056015073/
The sets of parts and stiles for the new doors are being produced. The droplights are ready to be glazed. http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N ... otostream/
Work is effectively complete on S&D179 - the Forcett coach: the last task has been to re-glaze the non-opening windows. It will shortly be returning to Beamish. http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N ... 7139592710
We have almost completed repairs to a pair of old oak doors – getting them apart took some careful pressure http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N ... 013193012/
The refit of the Miller Fifer has continued with a range of tasks at various stages of completion. One recent activity, still under way, has been to lift, clean and paint the ballast weights and their home. http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N ... 203069641/
The rebuild of the Volvo Penta engine for the ski boat has continued….. http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N ... 6673180348
There are a number of other items “in hand” but they have managed to escape the camera……but not for long…..
A new EHSI trainee started a placement at Stanegate Restorations at the beginning of March 2013. http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N ... 3102819333
And Ben de-Dog has been enjoying his visits to the workshop, and getting home again…… http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N ... 8026767272

Please – feel free to have a paddle around in my photostream, you can click on things that interest you to get the larger image, or the ‘on black’ version. Should you be another flickr member then you will be able add a comment or maybe even select a favourite (or several).

July 2013 Updates :

Since my last main update for April – and the return of the Forcett carriage to Beamish Museum - things have changed quite a bit. After the “upgrade and improvements” at the previous image hosting website on 20th May 2013, I decamped to ipernity, transplanted my images into a new *club* account and changed the link in my signature. Since then I have uploaded somewhere in the region of 100 images covering the May to July period.
Also I needed to update my homepage, to include the details of a couple of new projects……one of which had already been completed, so went straight into the past projects page. Further new work to be added……

Project reports :-
Considerable progress has continued on NSR127 : the structural work has all been completed, including canvassing a new roof. The doors and droplights have been built and are being hung / fitted. The various stages of painting and varnishing are well underway – with the inside virtually finished. http://www.ipernity.com/doc/312383/2216 ... bum/402585 : More images are to follow shortly.
The refit of the Miller Fifer has continued with a range of tasks at various stages of completion. The interior work has progressed into the forecabin, whilst the main cabin has been upgraded with soft furnishings. http://www.ipernity.com/doc/312383/2401 ... bum/402825 As a Scottish boat, a certain amount of tartan has been included ……
We have painted the steel apron for the Sentinel Steam Waggon. Final assembly of the cab, roof and apron has been completed – after a final steam test, to make sure that there are no small wisps of escaping steam. http://www.ipernity.com/doc/312383/2216 ... bum/402739 A number of other items have also been painted and it is reported that the signwriter has been at work …….. A few extra images will be needed.
The work on the lifeboat Callout Boards has been completed, http://www.ipernity.com/doc/312383/2401 ... bum/402869 they were delivered in time to greet the restored “George Elmy” during an emotional return to Seaham Harbour.
There are a number of other items “in hand” but they have managed to escape the camera……but not for long….. I’ve managed a few non-work images as well, including a trip for a sponsored “pub crawl” by pulling lifeboat along the Norfolk Broads. http://www.ipernity.com/doc/312383/2399 ... bum/463845
And Ben de-Dog has been enjoying his visits to the workshop, Whitby – even on a sunny day ! http://www.ipernity.com/doc/312383/2401 ... bum/402815 and getting home again……

Please – feel free to have a splash around in my photostream or paddle in the albums, you can click on the thumbnails that interest you to get a larger version.
Should you be another ipernity member then you will be able add a comment or maybe even select a favourite (or several).

Thanks for looking.

August 2013 Updates :

In the last month I have uploaded about 25 images to ipernity; and begun turning the status of the vast majority for my f****r images to private, as I intend to use ipernity for displaying my work.
Also my homepage has been updated; to include the details of new projects (NSR61) and to link the image gallery titles to the relevant ipernity albums …… If all goes according to plan, details some further new work will be added shortly ……

Project reports :-
It is with considerable pleasure and pride that we announce the completion of NSR127 and that the carriage has been returned to the NSRRSRT at Caversall Road. http://www.ipernity.com/doc/312383/25911183/in/album/402585 Some more images, from the NSRRSRT / Foxfield Railway are due to be uploaded shortly.
The low loader that collected the carriage has brought us NSR61 in exchange. Sorting out the “one off & one on” event took a certain amount of planning and occupied quite a significant area outside our workshop and part of a neighbouring area, also attracting much attention ! http://www.ipernity.com/doc/312383/25911143/in/album/502127 NSR61 is currently being examined as the first stage of the work to final completion that we are to undertake for the NSRRSRT, funding is mainly from a PRISM grant. Work on the doors (sub-project) has already started, with the first door already showing significant progress from this image. http://www.ipernity.com/doc/312383/25911145/in/album/502127
The refit of the Miller Fifer has progressed with several tasks reaching various levels of completion. A number of minor works, almost as snagging details, have continued to the interior, more work has been carried out on the cockpit coamimg / backrest and to the topsides in general, including re-varnishing the masts.
I am still aiming to get a few extra images of the work carried out on the Sentinel Steam Waggon .
I have been told that the Bread Van we overhauled for Beamish Museum has now been sign-written; and I hope to have some images shortly.

There are a number of other items “in hand” but they have managed to escape the camera……but not for long….. I’ve managed a few non-work images as well, including a trip to Whitby (again) but mainly the rescue of a Blackbird nestling http://www.ipernity.com/doc/312383/24896961/in/album/482279 to a fully fledged juvenile, currently in an avairy prior to a soft release. I suspect that it may be somewhat imprinted, but it is quite capable of finding food already.
And Ben de-Dog has been enjoying his visits to the workshop, and Whitby – even on a sunny day ! and getting home again……and walking / playing with “Ziggy” down by and in the river.

Please – feel free to have a plodge around in my photostream or dip into the albums, you can click on the thumbnails that interest you to get a larger version.
Should you be another ipernity member then you will be able to add a comment or maybe even select a favourite (or several). If you are not already signed up, I would encourage you to try ipernity, they do a free membership level, as well as their *club* subscription service.

Thanks for looking.

I must apologise for the failure to update this thread :oops:

We've still been doing our thing and although I still have a bit of a backlog, I have been uploading images to Ipernity.
Hopefully, "Normal Service" will be resumed in the New Year.
