Dunnockshaw and Clowbridge is a civil parish in the borough of Burnley, in Lancashire, England. The parish is situated between Burnley and Rawtenstall.

 

According to the United Kingdom Census 2011, the parish has a population of 185,[1] a decrease from 212 in the 2001 census.[2]

 

It contains the hamlets of Clowbridge and Dunnockshaw, both located on the A682 road. Clowbridge Reservoir is situated in the east of parish on the boundary with Rossendale. The reservoir, operated by United Utilities, is a used as a location for water sports. It was built in 1866 resulting in the flooding of the village of Gambleside.

 

The parish adjoins the Burnley parishes of Hapton and Habergham Eaves and the Borough of Rossendale.

 

Dunnockshaw was once a township in the ancient parish of Whalley. This became a civil parish in 1866, forming part of the Burnley Rural District from 1894. The Clowbridge area, previously part of Hapton,[a] transferred to Dunnockshaw but a detached area of the old township moved to Hapton in 1935.[4]

 

During World War II a Starfish site bombing decoy was constructed on Hameldon hill near Heights Farm, part of a network designed to protect Accrington.[5] Its site is protected as a Scheduled monument.

Here is another psychedelic image I created using a neural network designed to recognize patterns and objects in images. The original photo is an HDR image of a narrow canyon in Switzerland I posted last year. It looks kind of creepy, nightmarish, doesn't it?

 

Google uses this neural network algorithm to find similar images. They wrote the Google Research blog "Inceptionism: Going Deeper into Neural Networks" describing the process. They followed up with another blog, "DeepDream - a code example for visualizing Neural Networks ", explaining how this can be done with code examples.

 

I processed a balanced HDR photo from a RAW exposure, then applied Google's DeepDream neural network to get these psychedelic faces.

It may not look like it, but this giant dish in Australia spends its time in in-depth conversation with a number of European deep space missions.

 

The 35-m antenna is part of ESA’s New Norcia ground station, located 140 kilometres north of Perth. The impressive structure is one of three such stations in the Agency’s ESTRACK network, designed for communicating with spacecraft exploring the far reaches of the Solar System.

 

Deep Space Antenna-1 (DSA 1) routinely provides support to Mars Express and Exomars TGO, currently orbiting the Red Planet; the Gaia space observatory, in the process of making the world's most precise map of the stars in our Milky Way galaxy; BepiColombo on its way to Mercury; and Cluster II, studying Earth's magnetic environment.

 

Preparations are also underway for critical 2020 events, including a crucial BepiColombo flyby and the launch of Exomars RSP and Solar Orbiter.

 

Discoveries by these spacecraft and others would not be possible without ESA ground stations collecting their data, making it available to researchers across the globe and ensuring we can command and communicate with the explorers from our Operations Centre on Earth.

Internet Backbone - from my Network Engineer background

I just got back from the Churchill Club’s 13th Annual Top 10 Tech Trends Debate (site).

 

Curt Carlson, CEO of SRI, presented their trends from the podium, which are meant to be “provocative, plausible, debatable, and that it will be clear within the next 1-3 years whether or not they will actually become trends.”

 

Then the panelists debated them. Speaking is Aneesh Chopra, CTO of the U.S., and smirking to his left is Paul Saffo, and then Ajay Senkut from Clarium, then me.

 

Here are SRI’s 2011 Top 10 Tech Trends [and my votes]:

 

Trend 1. Age Before Beauty. Technology is designed for—and disproportionately used by—the young. But the young are getting fewer. The big market will be older people. The aging generation has grown up with, and is comfortable with, most technology—but not with today’s latest technology products. Technology product designers will discover the Baby Boomer’s technology comfort zone and will leverage it in the design of new devices. One example today is the Jitterbug cell phone with a large keypad for easy dialing and powerful speakers for clear sound. The trend is for Baby Boomers to dictate the technology products of the future.

 

[I voted YES, it’s an important and underserved market, but for tech products, they are not the early adopters. The key issue is age-inspired entrepreneurship. How can we get the entrepreneurial mind focused on this important market?]

 

Trend 2. The Doctor Is In. Some of our political leaders say that we have "the best medical care system in the world". Think what it must be like in the rest of the world! There are many problems, but one is the high cost of delivering expert advice. With the development of practical virtual personal assistants, powered by artificial intelligence and pervasive low-cost sensors, “the doctor will be in”—online—for people around the world. Instead of the current Web paradigm: “fill out this form, and we’ll show you information about what might be ailing you”, this will be true diagnosis—supporting, and in some cases replacing—human medical practitioners. We were sending X-rays to India to be read; now India is connecting to doctors here for diagnosis in India. We see the idea in websites that now offer online videoconference interaction with a doctor. The next step is automation. The trend is toward complete automation: a combination of artificial intelligence, the Internet, and very low-cost medical instrumentation to provide high-quality diagnostics and advice—including answering patient questions—online to a worldwide audience.

 

[NO. Most doctor check-ups and diagnoses will still need to be conducted in-person (blood tests, physical exams, etc). Sensor technology can’t completely replace human medical practitioners in the near future. Once we have the physical interface (people for now), then the networking and AI capabilities can engage, bringing specialist reactions to locally collected data. The real near-term trend in point-of-care is the adoption of iPads/phones connected to cloud services like ePocrates and Athenahealth and soon EMRs.]

    

Trend 3. Made for Me. Manufacturing is undergoing a revolution. It is becoming technically and economically possible to create products that are unique to the specific needs of individuals. For example, a cell phone that has only the hardware you need to support the features you want—making it lighter, thinner, more efficient, much cheaper, and easier to use. This level of customization is being made possible by converging technical advances: new 3D printing technology is well documented, and networked micro-robotics is following. 3D printing now includes applications in jewelry, industrial design, and dentistry. While all of us may not be good product designers, we have different needs, and we know what we want. The trend is toward practical, one-off production of physical goods in widely distributed micro-factories: the ultimate customization of products. The trend is toward practical, one-off production of physical goods in widely distributed micro-factories: the ultimate customization of products.

 

[NO. Personalization is happening just fine at the software level. The UI skins and app code is changeable at zero incremental cost. Code permeates outward into the various vessels we build for it. The iPhone. Soon, the car (e.g. Tesla Sedan). Even the electrical circuits (when using an FPGA). This will extend naturally to biological code, with DNA synthesis costs plummeting (but that will likely stay centralized in BioFabs for the next 3 years. When it comes to building custom physical things, the cost and design challenges relegate it to prototyping, tinkering and hacks. Too many people have a difficult time in 3D content creation. The problem is the 2D interfaces of mouse and screen. Perhaps a multitouch interface to digital clay could help, where the polygons snap to fit after the form is molded by hand.]

     

Trend 4. Pay Me Now. Information about our personal behavior and characteristics is exploited regularly for commercial purposes, often returning little or no value to us, and sometimes without our knowledge. This knowledge is becoming a key asset and a major competitive advantage for the companies that gather it. Think of your supermarket club card. These knowledge-gatherers will need to get smarter and more aggressive in convincing us to share our information with them and not with their competitors. If TV advertisers could know who the viewers are, the value of the commercials would go up enormously. The trend is technology and business models based on attracting consumers to share large amounts of information exclusively with service providers.

 

[YES, but it’s nothing new. Amazon makes more on merchandising than product sales margin. And, certain companies are getting better and better at acquiring customer information and personalizing offerings specifically to these customers. RichRelevance provides this for ecommerce (driving 25% of all e-commerce on Black Friday). Across all those vendors, the average lift from personalizing the shopping experience: 15% increase in overall sales and 8% increase in long-term profitability. But, simply being explicit and transparent to the consumer about the source of the data can increase the effectiveness of targeted programs by up to 100% (e.g., saying “Because you bought this product and other consumers who bought it also bought this other product" yielded a 100% increase in product recommendation effectiveness in numerous A/B tests). Social graph is incredibly valuable as a marketing tool.]

       

Trend 5. Rosie, At Last. We’ve been waiting a long time for robots to live in and run our homes, like Rosie in the Jetsons’ household. It’s happening a little now: robots are finally starting to leave the manufacturing floor and enter people's homes, offices, and highways. Robots can climb walls, fly, and run. We all know the Roomba for cleaning floors—and now there’s the Verro for your pool. Real-time vision and other sensors, and affordable precise manipulation, are enabling robots to assist in our care, drive our cars, and protect our homes and property. We need to broaden our view of robots and the forms they will take—think of a self-loading robot-compliant dishwasher or a self-protecting house. The trend is robots becoming embedded in our environments, and taking advantage of the cloud, to understand and fulfill our needs.

 

[NO. Not in 3 years. Wanting it badly does not make it so. But I just love that Google RoboCar. Robots are not leaving the factory floor – that’s where the opportunity for newer robots and even humanoid robots will begin. There is plenty of factory work still to be automated. Rodney Brooks of MIT thinks they can be cheaper than the cheapest outsourced labor. So the robots are coming, to the factory and the roads to start, and then the home.]

  

Trend 6. Social, Really. The rise of social networks is well documented, but they're not really social networks. They're a mix of friends, strangers, organizations, hucksters—it’s more like walking through a rowdy crowd in Times Square at night with a group of friends. There is a growing need for social networks that reflect the fundamental nature of human relationships: known identities, mutual trust, controlled levels of intimacy, and boundaries of shared information. The trend is the rise of true social networks, designed to maintain real, respectful relationships online.

  

[YES. The ambient intimacy of Facebook is leading to some startling statistics on fB evidence reuse by divorce lawyers (80%) and employment rejections (70%). There are differing approaches to solve this problem: Altly’s alternative networks with partioning and control, Jildy’s better filtering and auto-segmentation, and Path’s 50 friend limit.]

  

Trend 7. In-Your-Face Augmented Reality. With ever-cheaper computation and advances in computer vision technology, augmented reality is becoming practical, even in mobile devices. We will move beyond expensive telepresence environments and virtual reality games to fully immersive environments—in the office, on the factory floor, in medical care facilities, and in new entertainment venues. I once did an experiment where a person came into a room and sat down at a desk against a large, 3D, high-definition TV display. The projected image showed a room with a similar desk up against the screen. The person would put on 3D glasses, and then a projected person would enter and sit down at the other table. After talking for 5 to 10 minutes, the projected person would stand up and put their hand out. Most of the time, the first person would also stand up and put their hand into the screen—they had quickly adapted and forgotten that the other person was not in the room. Augmented reality will become indistinguishable from reality. The trend is an enchanted world— The trend is hyper-resolution augmented reality and hyper-accurate artificial people and objects that fundamentally enhance people's experience of the world.

 

[NO, lenticular screens are too expensive and 3D glasses are a pain in the cortex. Augmented reality with iPhones is great, and pragmatic, but not a top 10 trend IMHO]

   

Trend 8. Engineering by Biologists.

Biologists and engineers are different kinds of people—unless they are working on synthetic biology. We know about genetically engineered foods and creatures, such as gold fish in multiple other colors. Next we’ll have biologically engineered circuits and devices. Evolution has created adaptive processing and system resiliency that is much more advanced than anything we’ve been able to design. We are learning how to tap into that natural expertise, designing devices using the mechanisms of biology. We have already seen simple biological circuits in the laboratory. The trend is practical, engineered artifacts, devices, and computers based on biology rather than just on silicon.

 

[YES, and NO because it was so badly mangled as a trend. For the next few years, these approaches will be used for fuels and chemicals and materials processing because they lend themselves to a 3D fluid medium. Then 2D self-assembling monolayers. And eventually chips , starting with memory and sensor arrays long before heterogeneous logic. And processes of biology will be an inspiration throughout (evolution, self-assembly, etc.). Having made predictions along these themes for about a decade now, the wording of this one frustrated me]

 

Trend 9. ‘Tis a Gift to be Simple. Cyber attacks are ever more frequent and effective. Most attacks exploit holes that are inevitable given the complexity of the software products we use every day. Cyber researchers really understand this. To avoid these vulnerabilities, some cyber researchers are beginning to use only simple infrastructure and applications that are throwbacks to the computing world of two decades ago. As simplicity is shown to be an effective approach for avoiding attack, it will become the guiding principle of software design. The trend is cyber defense through widespread adoption of simple, low-feature software for consumers and businesses.

 

[No. I understand the advantages of being open, and of heterogencity of code (to avoid monoculture collapse), but we have long ago left the domain of simple. Yes, Internet transport protocols won via simplicity. The presentation layer, not so much. If you want dumb pipes, you need smart edges, and smart edges can be hacked. Graham Spencer gave a great talk at SFI: the trend towards transport simplicity (e.g. dumb pipes) and "intelligence in the edges" led to mixing code and data, which in turn led to all kinds of XSS-like attacks. Drive-by downloading (enabled by XSS) is the most popular vehicle for delivering malware these days.]

 

Trend 10. Reverse Innovation. Mobile communication is proliferating at an astonishing rate in developing countries as price-points drop and wireless infrastructure improves. As developing countries leapfrog the need for physical infrastructure and brokers, using mobile apps to conduct micro-scale business and to improve quality of life, they are innovating new applications. The developing world is quickly becoming the largest market we’ve ever seen—for mobile computing and much more. The trend is for developing countries to turn around the flow of innovation: Silicon Valley will begin to learn more from them about innovative applications than they need to learn from us about the underlying technology.

 

[YES, globalization is a megatrend still in the making. The mobile markets are clearly China, India and Korea, with app layer innovation increasingly originating there. Not completely of course, but we have a lot to learn from the early-adopter economies.]

 

Taken 29/01/20: whilst not an ideal vantage point I chanced upon this spot whilst walking a short distance out of the city alongside the Oxford Canal.

 

The Class 168 units were built in several batches from 1997 onwards. The first batch was classified 168/0 under TOPS and resembled the Class 165 units previously built by BREL York. The Networker-design cab was an interim solution pending the design of a completely new cab for further Turbostar batches. Subsequent builds, subclassed as 168/1 and 168/2, were constructed at the same time as the Class 170 Turbostar and thus are part of the Turbostar family of trains.

 

As per Wikipedia "... Chiltern Railways is a British train operating company owned by Arriva UK Trains that has operated the Chiltern Railways franchise since July 1996. It operates commuter/regional rail passenger services from its central London terminus at London Marylebone along the M40 corridor [presumably not lirerally] to destinations in Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Warwickshire, as well as long-distance services to the West Midlands along two routes. Services on the Chiltern Main Line run from London to Birmingham Snow Hill, Stratford-upon-Avon and Oxford, with some peak-hour services extended to Kidderminster. Chiltern Railways also runs trains on the London to Aylesbury Line to Aylesbury (some of which continue on to Aylesbury Vale Parkway), and on the Princes Risborough to Aylesbury and Oxford to Bicester branch lines"

 

The 14.41 Aylesbury to London Marylebone arrives at Princes Risborough on 4 July 2019 formed of Adtranz Clumban unit 168003. With a cab end resembling the British Rail Networker design, the five units of this subclass (168/0) were the forerunners of class 170 and were built at Derby Works in 1997/8.

Twit Choo-Choo is the winning design from the CrossCounty design an owl competition. Winner Joseph Hewston’s design is based on Birmingham being the heart of the country and hence at the heart of the rail network.

 

Design by Joseph Hewston. Painted by Glenn Anderson

Joseph Hewston is 15 years old and attends King Edward VI school in Aston. He enjoys playing football, cricket and the saxophone.

Glenn Anderson is a Birmingham art legend, who sites ‘places, adventures, discovery, and the five+ sensory emotions’ as examples of the inspiration for his work. He believes that these experiences are caught and manifest themselves in strange ways, and that the human ‘amplifier’ needs to do something with that energy in positive ways. Glenn’s work features typography – both conventional and non-conventional – and he works in Biro, with aerosol, planks of weathered wood and rusted nails and much, much more.

Sponsor: CrossCountry

Auction Price: £3800

 

The Big Hoot captured the imagination of everyone in Birmingham and beyond, with hundreds of thousands of people taking to the streets with their Big Hoot Trail maps to explore the colourful invasion of individually designed owls. Taking in the city’s 10 districts, tourists and residents alike enjoyed their owl adventure, discovering and celebrating the extraordinary creativity produced by many of Birmingham’s artistic community and over 25,000 young people.

 

The Big Hoot owls went under the hammer on 15 October 2015 at The Big Hoot auction sponsored by Vodafone and we are thrilled to have smashed our target by raising the incredible sum of £508,035!

 

The money raised from the auction will support Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity’s £3.65m Star Appeal. This appeal will enable us to create a first of its kind, a Rare Diseases Centre in the UK specifically for children. It will provide co-ordinated care, treatment, support and most importantly hope to children and families living with a rare or undiagnosed condition.

 

In addition the auction raised £15,000 for G’owl’d by Temper with proceeds going to Edward’s Trust, and £7,800 for Fleet and Free with proceeds going to Birchfield Harriers.

 

So thank you - we simply couldn’t have done it without you.

 

Artists have played a major role in The Big Hoot, creating almost 100 owl sculptures. We would like to thank all the artists for their incredible creativity and hard work.

Professional artists from Birmingham, the wider Midlands region and further afield have created extraordinary giant owls that are all unique in style and character and represent the city’s creativity, history and heritage, music, fashion, architecture and attractions.

Birmingham is home to a wealth of artistic and creative individuals and communities and many award-winning and nationally and internationally acclaimed artists. We are delighted with the response from Birmingham’s creative community and are thrilled to work in collaboration with them to transform the streets, squares and parks of the city.

For five months artists have been creating owls in their studios, at home and in The Big Hoot Artists’ Studio at the Custard Factory in Digbeth. Their inspiring and innovative designs have been realised in genres including graffiti, illustration, fine art, graphics, typography, mosaic and new media. They have worked with both community groups and with corporates to realise ideas and create their stunning designs.

The Big Hoot not only provides a high quality and ambitious free public event for families but also supports the creativity of artists and celebrates talent and diversity. The Big Hoot has provided an inspiring relationship between the city and the arts.

The artists have also reached out to communities enabling more people to participate in the arts, to experience working with professional artists and to be inspiring and inspired. From the north to the south of the city residents groups, youth groups and older peoples’ groups have been collaborating with artists to generate ideas, design and create owls for The Big Hoot.

Creativity is everywhere but the opportunity to participate is not. A range of activities have been programmed within Birmingham’s diverse communities and people from the age of 3 – 97 and from wards within the city boundaries have contributed to The Big Hoot and helped make the event extraordinary. Our projects have seen artists working with hundreds of residents and community members including children in looked after care, older peoples’ clubs, young people and residents organisations to design and decorate the owls displayed as part of the 10 week public event.

Vandels or thieves destroyed a single point on the EDF (Electricite De France) power distribution system and blacked out 100,000 customers most of them across 4 days - personally for 63 hours. That's called great design - the concept of redundancy and resiliance in network design seems lost on them. If you're puzzled about ownership - well HM Government sold our power infrastructure to the French some years ago! Anyway it took them 63 hours to restore supply using the bigest deployment of mobile generators seen in UK apparently. Here is one still doing its job. (Just heard a suggestion that the power cables cut had Axe marks - authorities suggest that 132 000 volts are not likely to have found the wooden axe handle much of an insulator - shame!)

 

No doubt someone will be along shortly to nick the generator

 

The loss of power screwed phones (both cell & landline) and Internet access - glad it was summer!

Issues of privacy and security are at the forefront of public debate, particularly in light of recent national security disclosures and increasingly pernicious cyber attacks that target our personal information, our ideas, our money, and our secrets. But are privacy rights trumping public safety interests? And if so, at what cost? Has the post-Snowden pendulum swung too far in one direction?

 

On October 16, Governance Studies at Brookings hosted FBI Director James Comey for a discussion of the impact of technology on the work of law enforcement. Law enforcement officials worry that the explosion in the volume and the means by which we all communicate threatens its access to the evidence it needs to investigate and prosecute crime and to prevent acts of terrorism.

 

In particular, officials worry that the emergence of default encryption settings and encrypted devices and networks – designed to increase security and privacy – may leave law enforcement in the dark. Director Comey will talk about the need for better cooperation between the private sector and law enforcement agencies. He will also discuss potential solutions to the challenge of “going dark,” as well as the FBI’s dedication to protecting public safety while safeguarding privacy and promoting network security and innovation.

WINNER OF THE TRANSMEDIALE.09 AWARD

 

Jury Statement:

 

"Profound and dense, this work will be remade for transmediale after showings in 2008 in San Jose at 0l and in Italy at Manifesta7. It has been nominated for its quality of execution, density of imagination as well as conceptual and metaphorical strengths. It operates on many levels – casting light on the memory of the more than three million people who have died in wars in the Congo over the last ten years—through the use of telephony combined with computation. A rack of electromagnetic Strowger telephony switches is triggered by a computer that tracks calls from the 'Telephone Trottoire,' a 'social telephony' network designed for an international Congolese diaspora. This project builds on the Congolese practice of 'radio trottoire' – passing news and hearsay on street corners by word-of-mouth to avoid state control. Its imaginative breadth and its integration of socio-political objectives were seen by the jury as exceptional. The artists have established a substantial track record in engaging with subjects that impact us globally but are initially manifested locally, and their work is well-deserving of acknowledgement within transmediale 09."

Man With A Movie Camera: The Global Remake

Perry Bard (2008)

 

The video artist Perry Bard invites people to a collaborative web-based, database-generated montage experiment. Using Dziga Vertovs masterpiece from 1929 as direct inspiration, participants from all over the world can upload footage on the website next to the corresponding scenes from the original film. Uploaded digital media from photo cameras, video recorders and screen-grabs form part of the new interpretation. The lengths and images of submitted videos are synchronised with the original scenes through software, which then rotates the added material every day, ensuring the film may never be the same twice. Bard’s project transports Vertov’s impressions about the Soviet cities in his experimental silent film into the 21st century and becomes, in Vertov’s terms, the “decoding of life as it is.”.

The Sam Board(tm) is a WiFi connectivity solution for a tower site. It is a pre-packaged, standard tower board solution that allows Inveneo to separate the board design skill from the board deployment skill. Configurations for each onboard device are generated by a network design team, and complete Sam Boards are passed to deployment teams prior to installation. This allows us to quickly roll out new network locations using multiple in-country teams.

 

The Sam Board fits either in the telecom cabinet or in an outdoor enclosure. It's double layer design is very compact since the inside of a telecom cabinet usually has very limited space. When the board can't fit inside the cabinet, we have an outdoor weather proof enclosure that can be installed independent of the tower cabinet although the Sam Board can still receive power from it.

 

The board hosts the following devices:

1. Tower router

2. Managed switch for VLANs to be created and managed

3. Power controller/converter receives -48volt power from the tower cabinet, and runs it through a electronic fuse which protects rest of equipment on board. It also allows for remote power cycling of all the connected devices.

4. DC power strip connects the power controller to the devices on the board including the wifi gear mounted on the tower.

5. PoE injectors power devices using ethernet cable

 

The board powers a full WiFi antenna tower setup, including a number of configurations. One common example is 2 point-to-point WiFi dishes (one receiving internet and the other sending it off) and 4 local area distribution sector antennas. This equipment is mounted high on the tower and relays data to Sam Board router and switch that ties the tower to the rest of the wide area network.

 

The Sam Board is named for Sam Perales, who is proudly showing off his creation in the photo.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunnockshaw_and_Clowbridge

  

Dunnockshaw and Clowbridge is a civil parish in the borough of Burnley, in Lancashire, England. The parish is situated between Burnley and Rawtenstall.

 

According to the United Kingdom Census 2011, the parish has a population of 185,[1] a decrease from 212 in the 2001 census.[2]

 

It contains the hamlets of Clowbridge and Dunnockshaw, both located on the A682 road. Clowbridge Reservoir is situated in the east of parish on the boundary with Rossendale. The reservoir, operated by United Utilities, is a used as a location for water sports. It was built in 1866 resulting in the flooding of the village of Gambleside.

 

The parish adjoins the Burnley parishes of Hapton and Habergham Eaves and the Borough of Rossendale.

 

Dunnockshaw was once a township in the ancient parish of Whalley. This became a civil parish in 1866, forming part of the Burnley Rural District from 1894. The Clowbridge area, previously part of Hapton,[a] transferred to Dunnockshaw but a detached area of the old township moved to Hapton in 1935.[4]

 

During World War II a Starfish site bombing decoy was constructed on Hameldon hill near Heights Farm, part of a network designed to protect Accrington.[5] Its site is protected as a Scheduled monument.

In common with many garages, Mortlake was allocated an`Aldenham Staff Bus`. These collected workers along a set route as part of an extensive network designed to get staff to the `not easy to reach` overhaul facility at Elstree.

 

The former `Airport` Routemasters when displaced from their original work were an ideal choice to become staff buses. Being fitted with doors and a paraffin powered heater (the vent for which can be seen on the rear nearside corner), a greater degree of comfort would have been provided. Especially so when Mortlake`s example, RMA 10, was used overnight as the garage staff bus. The Aldenham driver was often very grateful at 6am on Winter mornings for being able to get into an already warm bus that had been used through the night.

 

Seen here in Mortlake Garage on 21 October 1979.

DBR1199 stands at the head of the "SX" carriage set in Britomart Station, Auckland (New Zealand). The SX carriages were built by Commonwealth Engineering to operate suburban services on the Brisbane commuter network. Designed to be converted to EMU trains, this never eventuated and the cars were retired. This carriage set was initially preserved by the Zig Zag Railway in Lithgow, NSW (Australia), before being acquired by Auckland for use on their suburban network.

 

Running in push-pull format with a pair of DBR Class locomotives, this train was used for one return service per day on the Auckland network towards the end of the morning and afternoon peak hours. During the off=peak period and on weekends, it is stabled in Westfield Yard.

 

Three DBR Class were fitted with door controls for this particular set, with two in use at any one time, and the third retained for local freight working in the Auckland area.

 

Of note is the crew compartment at the "front" of the train, intended for use as a drivers cab when Queensland Rail converted these carriages to EMU's, which obviously never eventuated.

Train: one of important public transportation of Japanese People

 

Look at here, the train went by. This is like a metro or lrt that carries everday passengers from suburban place of Japan (Kakamigahara for example) to more dense populated cities ( Gifu). The train travels really close to japanes little homes as what you can see here. I am wondering either the residents that lives really near to railway tracks will cause noise issue. However, because this tracks already built a long time ago, there should be no issue about noise pollution. I see that this network design allows resident to go to destination or working place easy without any much hassle. Why? Even for me I just walk about 5 minutes to the station (Shin-Naka) station and it connects to Nagoya big station at the city center. I really loves this place. I want to go to Japan again since it really gives my heart melt!!!

design for what became class 165

This is one symptom of not having a plan.

The top of the tower showing the detail of the microwave "Horn" antennas used for receiving and relaying microwave signals. Originally built as part of the "AT&T Longline Network". Built during the "Cold War" it was part of a communications network designed to survive a nuclear war. With a height of 133 ft. you could get quite a view. This tower linked Cleveland with Birmingham.

The Class 378 Capitalstar, is a type of electric multiple unit train, part of Bombardier Transportation's Electrostar family.

 

These trains are operating on the London Overground network, for which they were specifically designed.

The design is derived from the Class 376 trains used by Southeastern, featuring the same wider metro-style sliding pocket doors for more efficient boarding and alighting, which are faster and more reliable than plug doors, although they do not close flush with the bodyside and hence are less aerodynamic and do not provide as much heat insulation.

However, they also have significant differences from the Class 376, such as fully longitudinal seating similar to that used on London Underground rolling stock to give more standing room, suitable for the high-volume metro-style services on London Overground.

 

The units also have end gangways, though these are intended for emergency use only. The units were initially announced as coming in two separate batches.

 

The Class 378 fleet is currently formed of two separate subclasses, DC-only 378/1 and dual-voltage (AC and DC) Class 378/2:

 

Class 378/1 (East London Line, South London Line) - 20 four-car units were ordered. These units operate services on the extended East London Line, and are 750V DC only. These trains, which are designated Class 378/1, replaced the A60/A62 Stock previously used on the line. They entered service on 27 April 2010, on the preview service between Dalston Junction and New Cross / New Cross Gate. The service was extended to Crystal Palace and West Croydon on 23 May 2010. In common with all trains in the Electrostar family, these DC-only units have a recessed roof space for the fitting of a pantograph and other equipment for dual-voltage working in the future if necessary. The Southern services on the South London Line were withdrawn in 2012 and replaced by a new London Overground service operated using new air-conditioned 4-car Class 378 units.

 

Class 378/2 (North London Line, West London Line, Watford DC Line) - 37 dual-voltage four-car units ordered for the North London, West London, East London and Watford DC lines. These units have dual-voltage capability, taking current at 25kV AC from overhead wires or 750 V DC from third rail. These trains replaced the Class 313, Class 508 units in 2010. The first 24 units were originally three-car units designated Class 378/0 (378001-378024), and were redesignated Class 378/2 (renumbered 378201-378224) as each unit received its additional carriage in late 2010. The remaining 13 units (378225-378234 and 378255–378257) were built as four-car Class 378/2s from the outset.

 

In February 2013, approval was gained for the procurement of 57 additional vehicles to lengthen the Class 378 fleet from four to five cars.

TfL's Business Plan provides for the start of five-car services on the East London line from November 2014, and on the rest of the electrified Overground network by the end of 2015.

The town of Quantico is surrounded by Quantico Marine Corps Base and the Potomac River. The town was incorporated in 1927, and chartered in 1934. There are 295 households, 359 housing units, and the last census recorded 480 residents. Access to the town of Quantico for civilians can be obtained by passing security gates on Russell Road and Fuller Road with a state issued identification card. Once on the main post side of QMCB remain on the main road until reaching Potomac Avenue. You will see this sign and the Amtrak & Virginia Railway Express train station. There are several businesses which cater to the neighboring Marines. These businesses are listed on the above link for the town of Quantico.

The history of Quantico includes the American Civil War much like every where else in Northern Virginia. Confederate artillery batteries were placed overlooking the Potomac River at the entrances of Aquia Creek and Quantico Creek. Several units, including the 12th Regiment of North Carolina Volunteers, occupied the Quantico area at various times during the Civil War.

 

In 1872, the town of Potomac was incorporated by the Potomac Land & Improvement Company. The land of south of Little Creek (Fuller Road-Route 619) was chosen as the site of a new town based on its position between the Potomac River and Richmond Fredericksburg & Potomac Railroad. The development plans for the town of Potomac included farms, residential lots, streets, squares, parks, alleys, lanes, workshops, factory warehouses, stores, gas works, wharves, and other community and commerce buildings. But development stalled and Virginia legislators revoked the town charter for Potomac.

 

During the beginning of the the 20th century, the Quantico Company formed and promoted plans for the town of Potomac as a vacation and tourists destination. There were also plans to create an industrial district which would cater to shipbuilding. Although the official name of the town was Potomac, it became known as Quantico because the development company traded as the the Quantico Company.

 

The development of Quantico under the planning and execution of the Quantico Company, consisted of buildings for commerce, beaches for tourists, residential lots, water and sewer service, and a street network designed within a mixed-use community. Construction of the Quantico ship building yards began in 1916 near shipping point, the current day naval medical center north of Little Creek. The ship yards here were designed to build tankers and freighters. By 1917, Quantico was a community containing a fishing village, shipbuilding yards, and tourist destination.

 

In 1917 the Marine Corps became interested in the land around the Quantico area as an east coast readiness and training base for overseas deployment to Europe in preparation for the outbreak of WWI. The plans of the Quantico Company for the future development of Quantico were no longer viable, and the future of Quantico had immediately changed.

 

The 19th Commandant of the Marine Corps Major General George Barnett (b. Dec. 9, 1858 d. April 27, 1930) negotiated an agreement on April 23, 1917 with the Quantico Company to lease 5,300 acres next to the town of Quantico. After the lease agreement was signed, the Quantico Company decided to abandoned the town of Quantico, and contacted Marine Corps officials to sell the 5,300 under lease, and offer the sale of another adjoining parcel for $475,000. The offer was approved by the 65th Congress, and 28th President Woodrow Wilson. On November 4, 1918, Quantico Marine Corps Base became an official military post by declaration by President Wilson.

SXV1746 stands at the head of the "SX" carriage set in Westfield Yard, Auckland (New Zealand). The SX carriages were built by Commonwealth Engineering to operate suburban services on the Brisbane commuter network. Designed to be converted to EMU trains, this never eventuated and the cars were retired. This carriage set was preserved by the Zig Zag Railway in Lithgow, NSW (Australia), before being acquired by Auckland for use on their suburban network.

 

Running in push-pull format with a pair of DBR Class locomotives, this train does one return service per day on the Auckland network towards the end of the morning and afternoon peak hours. During the day and on weekends, it is stabled in Auckland Yard.

 

Three DBR Class were fitted with door controls for this particular set, with two in use at any one time, and the third retained for local freight working in the Auckland area.

 

Of note is the crew compartment at the "front" of the train, intended for use as a drivers cab when Queensland Rail converted these carriages to EMU's, which obviously never eventuated.
