  1. It's always amusing when people consider landscapes enabled by the Enclosure Acts 'natural' or even 'historic'.
  2. This is hoe I print similar pieces, though the next time I do some they are likely to have a continuous triangular support along the bottom edge printed directly on the build plate.
  3. Yep. It's something that is common to all liquid resin printers. Basically your models are not well enough supported. Think of it this way, When a print gets to the top of a support the next layer is going to be just one layer thick, and if the layer is too wide it can bulge as the print goes into the resin. If this happens the next layer will be thicker than it should be as it fills in the empty space under the first layer. This is the real reason that you are advised to print with the model at an angle to the build plate in both the x and y directions. The best advi
  4. Yes, but weather events tend to cover a much wider area than, say, a herd of cows. If it's found that one river/burn in an area is in spate enough to cause a land-slip then there are likely to be others that could do the same. It is probably something that is fairly obvious to someone with good local knowledge, but less so for someone working from a distance.
  5. What I found surprising about the Stonehaven derailment was that the train was travelling at line speed when it hit the land slip. This was after being stopped and returned further south because of a similar slip. I would have thought that caution would have suggested that a slower speed would have been preferable, especially as the previous slip had blocked the line and so there was no possibility of delaying other services.
  6. Wouldn't empty fish vans be returned by goods train? Following fish traffic is complicated because vans were hired out to wholesale merchants who could send them to which ever port was landing good catches.
  7. But Swastas are only illegal in Germany, so why couldn't you post your photos here?
  8. The butt and ben that we, as a family of four, nicely filled, held 15 in the 1851 census.
  9. You could use a minimalist 'radial' truck. This can be supported by either single wire, so it rocks, or by twin spring wires. They are useful on radial locos where the pivot of a pony truck would be in a inconvenient place. They can really confuse builders though...
  10. Just about every village had it's own woodland, which was managed to provide all the timber needed in an agricultural community. Unfortunately this management came to an end around the time of the Great War, when fewer men were willing to work in the woodlands.
  11. British Caucasian Oil is not listed in Tourret's 'Petroleum Tank Wagons of Britain'. Though there is an entry for United Caucasian Oil Co Ltd, but this is for one of their tank wagon numbered 21 and built in 1922.
  12. I think you are confusing the National Archives with Kew Garden, which is just full of plants.
  13. The piles of 'stuff' to the right of the photo seems to be mostly building materials. One of them, at least, is made up of what seems to be glazed water pipes.
