HS2 at risk of derailing at top speeds, report finds
I’m blown away by the level of support from fellow rail enthusiasts in building this site. Their willingness to participate in its construction with no prospect of financial gain, just the satisfaction of being involved, is bloody marvellous. Starting in May , Derek’s input has been a massive undertaking and there have been times when the pair of us – just two bungling old geezers with a mutual love for trains and railways – were on our arthritic knees by the sheer size of it all.

Bella Dinh-Zarr, a National Transportation Safety Board member, said the data recorder in the rear locomotive showed the train was going 80mph in a 30mph zone when it derailed along a curve south of Seattle, spilling carriages on to a road below.
Ms Dinh-Zarr said it is not yet known what caused the Amtrak train to derail and too early to say why it was going so fast. She said investigators will talk to the engineer and other crew members. In previous deadly train wrecks, investigators looked at whether the engineer was distracted or disoriented. The engineer, whose name was not released, was bleeding from the head after the wreck, and both eyes were swollen shut, according to dispatch audio.
The train was making the inaugural run along a fast new bypass route created by refurbishing freight tracks alongside Interstate 5.

One of the first scientists to experiment with thunderstorm electricity even before Ben Franklin was killed by BL. In , Georg Wilhelm Reichmann attempted to reproduce one of Franklin’s thought-experiments. Lightning struck his metal mast, and witnesses said that a ball of fire flew out and struck him on the forehead, killing him instantly.
Leeds Crown Court heard Pearce, 21, failed to stop and sped off when police tried to stop him in the early hours of June 24 this year.
Origins[ edit ] A university in the city of Canterbury was first considered in , when an anticipated growth in student numbers led several residents to seek the creation of a new university, including Kent. However, the plans never came to fruition. In the Education Committee of Kent County Council explored the creation of a new university,  formally accepting the proposal unanimously on 24 February The name adopted reflected the support of both the city and county authorities; as well as the existence of the University of Canterbury in New Zealand, which officially opposed the use of a name too similar to its own.
However, the four original colleges — Darwin, Eliot, Keynes and Rutherford — remain, together with the newer Woolf and Turing colleges, each with their own masters. In July the tunnel collapsed, damaging part of the Cornwallis Building, which sank nearly a metre within about an hour on the evening of 11 July. In the university opened the University Centre at Tonbridge now the University of Kent at Tonbridge for its School of Continuing education , helping to enhance the availability of teaching across the county.
Initially based at Mid-Kent College, a new joint campus opened in As a consequence of the expansion outside Canterbury the university’s name was formally changed to the University of Kent on 1 April In the university was rebranded with a new logo and website. The logo was chosen following consultation with existing university students and those in sixth forms across the country. The proposed changes to UK and EU undergraduate tuition fees did not apply to international student fees.
The visitors did stage a late rally, inspired by sub Patrick Bamford, but could have no complaints about the result. Sluggish starts have become a hard habit to break as the season progresses. The subtext of the Nottingham Forest match was the return of former fans’ favourite Britt Assombalonga, who was cast in the role as the pantomime villain.

He was convicted of multiple frauds and thefts after the longest trial in the history of Liverpool Crown Court – lasting more than a year.
Judge Steven Everett detailed the appalling ways Barton snr groomed, isolated and manipulated his victims, deploying shocking tactics. Yet he also tried to strike a deal with Mrs Willey, whereby she would transfer all of her money to him, in return for lifelong care at Barton Park. Gordon and Katie Willey, who were victims of cruel conman David Barton Senior Judge Everett said Barton snr’s strategy to make Mrs Willey dependant on him included “poisoning” her against loved ones and close friends.
He said this extended to loyal employees, about whom the brazen conman told “outrageous lies” to Mrs Willey, in order to get them dismissed. But that false allegation was nothing compared to the despicable lie he told about her gardener, who raised concerns about her care. Barton – formerly named Ramamurthie Dasaratha Naidoo – approached him and threatened to spread rumours he was “messing with children”. Judge Everett said this was “completely false”, yet Barton snr repeated it to Mrs Willey, who believed him and sacked the gardener.
The judge added it was clear this man was “devastated” by the lie when he gave evidence during the long-running trial.

Vic’s not happy The goals would flow more easily in his second season, as he ended the campaign as Leeds’ leading goalscorer with 13 strikes across all competitions. Had he not missed six weeks injured towards the end of the season he could have staked more of a claim to be the club’s main striking option, given Leeds’ poor form in front of goal during the run-in. Where has he been under Christiansen and Heckingbottom in terms of the pecking order of attacking players at Leeds?
Injuries and his stop-start scoring pattern undoubtedly harmed his progress last season, but his versatility means that he was always around the first-team picture when available last season. Do you believe Roofe has what it takes to thrive in a promotion chasing team, be it Leeds, Albion or elsewhere?
PA By Andrew Gilligan Engineering changes will be needed to make the project safe, the study says. Around miles of the route, about a third of the total length, will run on embankments. On Saturday, HS2 officials welcomed the analysis and said that detailed designs would be drawn up as they examine the ground along the route.
However, they declined to comment on the implications for the scheme of having to reduce train speeds, or say how much more money might need to be spent. HS2 plans to start operations with trains running at mph in routine service, then increase speeds — to mph — within a few years.

The streamliner tipped over when it passed over a rut in the track as it was being towed to the start line. Triumph said rain meant it was not possible to create the required-consistency across the mile course necessary to undertake the attempt. A mile into the run the machine lost traction on the damp surface, veering off the steered path and tipping over on the course.
The University of Kent (formerly the University of Kent at Canterbury), abbreviated as UKC, is a semi-collegiate public research university based in Kent, United was founded in and is recognised as a Beloff’s plate glass University was granted its Royal Charter on 4 January and the following year Princess Marina, Duchess of Kent was formally installed as the.
The 8 and the 12, the latter taking a circuitous route via Daubhill, Little Hulton, Walkden, Roe Green and Worsley taking a scheduled 55minutes against the rather tightly timed 38 minutes of the more direct 8. Quite apart from the fascinating stuff we saw and rode on the way up, across and back down again, the Stockport and Manchester Crossleys made a great impression, and so did the great variety of operators working into Manchester, but I remember being especially taken by those lovely Salford Daimlers with their straight staircases, destination-winder trunnions and the no-nonsense, upright Metro-Cammell bodies.
To have lasted so long with such rough treatment these wonderfully characterful vehicles must have been as solidly-built as they looked—or were the fitters kept busy? I bet someone knows! I read that Salford always put their newest buses on the 15, which ran to Piccadilly, to impress their neighbours “across the river”. This has now been superseded by Shudehill Bus Station, which is actually in Manchester, and the whole area around Victoria Bridge Street is being redeveloped.
And yes, I agree about “Arndale”! On the radiator subject I only ever remember the radiator was far forward and was informed at the time it was because of the longer engine. My first encounter with the forward entrance Leylands was on the 73 from Whitefield to Victoria, a pleasure to drive. Your epic trip from Reading to Grimsby via Salford sounds worthy of an article, describing route, rolling stock and how long it took!

Ossett’s Textile Mills When you look at any old pictures of Ossett, especially those pictures taken from the outskirts of the town, an enduring feature is the sheer number of smoking mill chimneys that punctuate the skyline. Every respectable Ossett textile mill had a chimney and usually a mill dam too. So numerous and prominent were these huge brick structures that you might think that there had been a competition among those pioneering Ossett businessmen to see who could build the biggest and best mill chimney.
The smoke pollution from the mill chimneys was a constant nuisance and the stonework on Ossett Holy Trinity Church has been permanently stained by soot from the smoke from coal-fired steam boilers that powered Ossett’s industry. Several Ossett mill-owners were prosecuted in the 19th century because the smoke from their mill chimneys was regarded as a public nuisance. The rag and mungo trade was unquestionably Ossett’s primary industry and there were rag warehouses and textile mills all around the town.
In , only the mill of Edward Clay and Sons on Wesley Street has survived the gradual decline in the industry. What follows is an attempt to document the history of Ossett’s textile mills, which were, in the first instance, woollen cloth mills, but as the 19th century came to an end, Ossett was increasingly a centre for the production of recovered wool cloth made from rags called mungo and shoddy. There have been a couple of cotton mills in Ossett and other related businesses such as flock manufacturing, a dye works and blanket making.
However, the primary Ossett business that evolved from the old hand loom cloth weavers and power looms was the manufacture of mungo and shoddy. In addition, a large number of rag businesses were set up to serve the needs of the town’s cloth mills. Picture of Ossett taken from the fields at Runtlings in the s. Park House or Ossett Grammar School can be seen to the left of the tree, but also visible are a couple of large mill chimneys, which still dominated Ossett’s skyline at that time.
