First Quarter 2017 - January, February, March - 7 weeks ago

A few images of progress at work and other things of interest are to be uploaded shortly., into my pages here. There will be a few days delay - my life partner is in hospital., now back home - but two operations will be required later this year. Additionally, the care required by my elderly father remains a .significant part of my time. Hopefully, there will be several new work projects starting in the first quarter of 2017. As usual, developments on these will be recorded photographically,…


RERM - Ravenglass Museum, album created on January 24, 2017

The Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway Museum. Synolda, especially when in steam, is a favourite exhibit from the collections. The Museum is currently closed, as during 2016/2017 an extensive new display space is under construction. This is due to be opened in late June. The museum collection and displays cover the original 3ft gauge railway which ran from 1875 to 1913, primarily built to move haematite iron ore and later gramite, passenger services were somewhat secondary. After 1915 the line was…

BBH - BlueBird, album created on June 11, 2013

These few images are in homage to Donald Campbell, for his attempts on land and water world speed records. He was killed at Coniston Water on 4th January 1967, during an attempt on the World Water Speed Record. Bluebird K-7 is currently under restoration to working order, and will be displayed at the Ruskin Museum in Coniston. A small amount of timber work will be required, and most of the items are now - late 2016 / early 2017- in Haltwhistle, and receiving some attention. (Images are to be a…

NER 2853 - 7 compartment composite, album created on March  7, 2015

We have been commissioned by the owner of this carriage to carry out a number of restoration tasks. When the carriage arrived, the number of this 7 compartment composite was not known. However, a little detective work has produced 22853, which is the post 1923 number for NER 2853. The carriage consists of two 3rds then three firsts and at the other end are two more 3rds. This format is Diagram 64 and 2853 was one of 26 built to this design, records give the date as February 1901 for 2853. The ex…

MFW - Miller in Whitehaven, album created on June 15, 2016

Images of "Emoyeni" in Whitehaven and elsewhere after her launch and shakedown period. It is intended that most of the images from "longer distance" cruises will be in their own albums. The crossover from the "shakedown" period was around the end of July and the beginning of August 2016. There are still a few more things we need to achieve; some practice with sails and a few more cruises but we are very pleased with her so far.

NER 70 - First Class Private Saloon, album created on June 12, 2013

Structural restoration of NER 70, for a private owner. Built as a private, or family, saloon in 1870 for the North Eastern Railway. It had a relatively short career, before withdrawal and disposal. It was eventually rescued from a location near Chester-Le-Street by the current owner in the 1970s. We found several places with text written by the builders during 1870. As the marks made in pencil are somewhat faint, I did some basic manipulation of the images attempting to make them clearer The tr…

Apologies if you are already aware, but ipernity is under threat of closure.

However, I’m pleased to say that a crowdfunding campaign has been initiated to raise funds to secure the platform's short term future in the first instance, but ultimately with a view to acquiring it for the community.

Many have already made a donation, myself included, and the campaign has got off to a great start, but there is still a way to go.

So, I would urge you, if you haven't already made a pledge, but want ipernity to survive to follow the link below and donate as much as you can afford.

Help Save Ipernity

This is a unique opportunity then for everyone who loves ipernity and who wants it to not only survive, but to become somewhere we can call home for many years to come to help secure its future. Yes, there are still questions to be answered and hurdles to be overcome, but together we really can make a difference.

Please support the campaign in any way you can, be that by making a donation, encouraging your friends and family to do so, or even just by mentioning it on social media such as Facebook or Twitter.

Best wishes
