Class 47s were the most numerous and versatile diesel locomotives on the UK railway system. There were few places they could not go and few duties they could not perform. Because of this, they were derided by most enthusiasts until it became clear that they were not long for this world, when, of course, they became the number one target and people travelled far and wide to photograph their final workings. Fortuntately, I had always photographed them and once again didn’t feel the need to chase them around too much in the final months of their working lives.
The summer of saw a Saturdays only On 9 July operated this service and is seen here just beyond Water Orton in the days when the M42 embankment was an excellent location for northbound workings. I think that the diesel worked only to Crewe from a where a steam locomotive took over for the remainder of the journey. I must have been quite a spectacle for anyone on the train as a large herd of friendly bullocks had arranged themselves in a semicircle behind me, luckily not straying into shot, although the accompanying flies were always in danger of making themselves known in the form of out-of-focus blobs in the sky and I did, in fact, have to clone out a couple of marks that presumably were insects I really hadn’t fancied yet another class 37 shot here especially with such an unexciting load but the freshly painted 47 was a much more attractive proposition.
It was close to the road bridge when I arrived and there was just had to line up this view of the locomotive which fitted nicely enough in a small gap, although I did have to stand in the middle of the road to achieve the correct angle!

History of Birmingham , Economic history of Birmingham , Science and invention in Birmingham , and Timeline of Birmingham history Pre-history and medieval[ edit ] Birmingham’s early history is that of a remote and marginal area. The main centres of population, power and wealth in the pre-industrial English Midlands lay in the fertile and accessible river valleys of the Trent , the Severn and the Avon.
The area of modern Birmingham lay in between, on the upland Birmingham Plateau and within the densely wooded and sparsely populated Forest of Arden. Instead of the economies of scale of a low-paid, unskilled workforce producing a single bulk commodity such as cotton or wool in large, mechanised units of production, Birmingham’s industrial development was built on the adaptability and creativity of a highly paid workforce with a strong division of labour , practising a broad variety of skilled specialist trades and producing a constantly diversifying range of products, in a highly entrepreneurial economy of small, often self-owned workshops.
Birmingham was the terminus for both of the world’s first two long-distance railway lines: During the Victorian era , the population of Birmingham grew rapidly to well over half a million  and Birmingham became the second largest population centre in England. Birmingham was granted city status in by Queen Victoria. The city established its own university in The city was also the scene of two scientific discoveries that were to prove critical to the outcome of the war.
The Bull Ring was reconstructed and New Street station was redeveloped.

I chose practice-led research as my research method because I was not familiar with the industrial production and constructions of clipped designs. By creative practicing I gained a deeper under-standing and new insights into the technique of floating and clipping. The creation of an idea port-folio by using various sketching methods and the development of the designs for production, represent an instrument in this research. In this study, creative activity meets theoretical background.
The idea portfolio supports the dialogue between the designer and the technician in a design case in collaboration with the Italian weaving mill Lodetex. A little bit of luck contributed to the final outcome of this study as well.

SN SN I own a Curta II in a plastic case, serial , with instruction leaflet and a copy of the yellow computations manual. This is in excellent used condition. Bought from Bryan Halladay in England and was used in rallying. I am learning to use it competently in historic rallying of my MGB Roadster. I am interested in trading for a mint Curta I or Curta II in a metal case that is complete with all literature and box.
Also I would like to obtain a lether rally case as well. I am looking also for a complete Curta I in box with case, all original literature. I have located a “Curta cup” which attatches the Curta to a clipboard for rallying. I am told that a cable was also attatched as another piece of rally gear. Perhaps someone could educate me about this cable affair.
I am also looking for an excellent late Curta II,complete with box, original literature to use everyday, as well as a Curta I with all of its literature and box to round off my collection. I have also located a “Curta cup” for a Curta I as well. This one has a metal zeroing ring.

Enlarge A mother-of-two hanged herself while her children watched TV downstairs after anti-depressants turned her into a zombie, an inquest heard A coroner has ordered an urgent investigation into an anti-depressant after it turned a mother-of-two into a ‘zombie’ before she was found hanged in her attic. Housewife Yvonne Woodley, 42, visited six GPs who increased her dosage of Citalopram in the months before her death. But she became more agitated after taking the drug and told people she wanted to die.
Her husband Kevin found her hanging in the loft of the family home in Solihull, West Midlands, on October 25 last year. Their two daughters, aged ten and 14, were watching TV downstairs at the time. Birmingham coroner Aiden Cotter called for more research into the drug after experts raised concerns over its side-effects.

It is an opportunity for us to reflect on the language and ideas that represented each year. So, take a stroll down memory lane to remember all of our past Word of the Year selections. Change It wasn’t trendy , funny, nor was it coined on Twitter , but we thought change told a real story about how our users defined Unlike in , change was no longer a campaign slogan. But, the term still held a lot of weight. Here’s an excerpt from our Word of the Year announcement in The national debate can arguably be summarized by the question: In the past two years, has there been enough change?
Has there been too much? Meanwhile, many Americans continue to face change in their homes, bank accounts and jobs. Only time will tell if the latest wave of change Americans voted for in the midterm elections will result in a negative or positive outcome. Tergiversate This rare word was chosen to represent because it described so much of the world around us.
