Thanks for the update, it is always interesting to see what you are doing. I always feel a bit jealous,both of your skills and also the opportunity that you have to work on such interesting and historic stuff.

Late Feb 2011 Update to StoneRoad’s fotopic.

Hi there, everyone:

During the past couple of days I have updated several fotopic collections, to record the recent progress on various projects. The Index page is in my signature; scroll down for the links to the most recent work – alpha/numeric listing (please, check the “more collections” link for other items).

Most of the recent work has concentrated on the Saltburn Cliff Lift.
The car we are re-building has now been completed structurally and we have begun the interior work. In addition, we are continuing to work on the components for the “Victorianisation” of both cars. There is still a lot of work to do before Easter……

http://stanegaterestorationsandreplicas ... 90811.html

As I have continued (slowly) sorting out and indexing the photographic records, one or two collections have gained a few extra pictures - no doubt there will be some further *lost* images to be found!

Enjoy a good look around – you might be surprised! :wink:
Thanks for looking and thumbnail clicking!

Please be advised that with Fotopic currently unavailable, normal service will be resumed when I have decided on an alternative host for the image collections, and done some uploads.....

Apologies, an' all that!

As a result of the sudden, and unexplained, disappearance of fotopic on the 9th March 2011, a small selection from the 800+ images – from two galleries – are now hosted on flickr.

http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N06/sets/

Currently there are two sets for current work (Saltburn Cliff Lift and the Miller Fifer), and a further eleven sets for past projects.

As yet; the image titles, tags and captions (descriptions) are still a work in progress, and I will be adding others shortly.

http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N06/sets/

Currently there are three sets for current work (Saltburn Cliff Lift, NER 70 and the Miller Fifer), a further seventeen sets for past projects and another six sets covering other subjects.
As yet; the image titles, tags and captions (descriptions) are still a work in progress, and I will be adding others shortly – as and when I find them!

The concentration of our efforts on the Saltburn Cliff Lift project had meant that work on other aspects had been postponed until the lift was re-opened to the public on 22nd April 2011. As that milestone has now been successfully passed, we can extend our attention to other matters, including updating websites, including flickr.

Recent flickr updates include the cliff lift:

And further uploads of material that was previously on fotopic.

Thanks for looking – please explore my photostream, and click on some images!

Flickr updates to Mid-May 2011

Over the last few days, I have been able to spend time sorting out images and I have retrieved about 150 images that I thought had disappeared into the ether. These have been uploaded to the Flickr account, and I have titled, captioned and tagged them. This brings me up to just over 700 images, and I hope that I have got all the important ones – if I find any more lurking around…….

Currently there are three sets for current work (which includes the Saltburn Cliff Lift, NER 70, and the Miller Fifer), a further twenty-two sets for twenty-eight past projects, and another six sets for additional images. This covers the wide range of projects carried out in the period from October 2006 to the present time.

As we are starting some new projects in the very near future, I will add sets for them as soon as I have the images.....

To help find the most recently uploaded images within the sets - I have added *New* to the title of the extra sets, and *Updated* to those sets with additional images. These notations will remain posted for about ten days or so.

As my photostream displays in the order of uploading, and I am adding images as I locate them, the image chronolgical order does not match......please note that some of the EXIF dates are very wrong, even some from the camera with the currently right date! This will be attended to shortly…..

Thanks for looking – please explore my sets and photostream, and click on some images! Then I’ll know what is popular (or not!)

i liked the signed timbers in the ner coach , which reminded me that when i built the two chassis for the whr(p) buffet car and its long lost mate i signed the chassis by welding my name on the underside of them , that was a most interesting job and would not mind making some more and i still have the pictures of most of the parts including a lot of the part details on paper.
when i told someone i built two chassis he asked what scale he did not believe me when i said 12" to the foot.

Mid – May Updates.

Just dropped by to post that since I have re-uploaded almost all the images, at last I have been able to revise all the links on my ‘homepage’ website. As a by-product of that I have reworked the current and past project pages. No doubt there will be a few more amendments and lost images to find and sort out……

Late May updates.

Recent updates are mainly to the flickr site, although there have been a couple of minor edits to my homepage. There are still a few changes to make, but some more details are needed before that can be done.
Most of the new images are to the NER70 and Miller Fifer sets, with a few others as well. Also a new set “Steel Underframe” has been added - these images have just recently been supplied by the people who fabricated the WHHR underframes some years ago.

Thanks for looking – please explore, and click on some images! Please comment, here or there, if you want.

Flickr updates start of June 2011

I have posted a few extra images to NER70 and the Miller Fifer sets to show current progress, and added to the 1001 things to restore set. There should be more new progress to show shortly.
As always, for you to click on images and even make comments - and fav’ing - would be welcome when you are exploring my collections, sets and photostream.

Flickr updates early June 2011

Yesterday I posted some more images of current progress with the NER70 restoration; and a few of the Chip Van taken during the recent visit to Spennymoor. I will also have a link to a short video filmed during the event to post quite soon. There are some additional images of model furniture and I’ve replaced one tiny image of the B5 traction engine with a slightly better one.

Enjoy! The link is in my signature.

Flickr updates in the last days of June 2011

Over the couple of days I have been adding images to my photostream. The main area of attention during the past week or so has been the building of the Aveling & Porter awning (or canopy) although work is still progressing on the Miller and NER70.
http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N ... hotostream

There is a new set “Film Units” which will include most of the various teams who have visited the workshop to watch us at work, as well as filming coverage of some of our products at work. I hope to be adding more to this shortly.
Additionally, I have posted a few more “backdated” images – this process is almost complete as there are now only a few still missing, as I have looked in most of the usual places.
Unfortunately, the unveiling of our major new work project has had to be postponed for a little while; I am hoping to do so during July, so watch this space – as they say!

The link in my signature will take you to my “sets” page, so please enjoy exploring….
Thanks for looking

Early July Updates

I have just updated my homepage as the go-ahead has just been given for our newest project, the restoration – for operation on the Pockerley Waggonway – of the Forcett Coach; otherwise known as Stockton & Darlington No.179. Technically this is third class, but it was part of a rake of carriages, built for market day services and is rather basic. The link is to a sample image in the set for this project:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N ... 7139592710

Work is progressing nicely on the other projects – that is; the Aveling & Porter steam roller awning, NER70 and the Miller Fifer. Several updates for these should be added quite soon, as I want to make sure that I have the best images of the recent work to upload.

Thanks for looking, and please enjoy exploring my photostream…..

Mid July Updates

I have just dropped by to say that most of the extra images promised last time have now been uploaded to the sets for current projects. Also, we were invited to the official opening of Davy’s Coal-fired chip shop at Beamish on the 14th July, and took some pictures of the proceedings. http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N ... hotostream

I invite you to have a look around my flickr site……
