Resurrected: Webmaster's Calendar (links to a small pdf file). Some local, and not so local, events of engineering, railway and model engineering interest.

Funny to think of the prototype HST in the same context as other preserved locos: Prototype HST Start Up and Test Run and First Passenger Train.

A long one, but worth watching: How To Build A Jumbo Jet Engine.

Fred Dibnah: Laddering a Chimney, Part 1 and Laddering a Chimney, Part 2.

Interesting bit of history, although there's some suggestion that it didn't contribute as much to the war effort as previously thought: Op. Pluto.

Loco maintenance: Wash and Brush Up.
