I agree about electrifying the rail network, and perhaps reopening some of the lines shut during and since the 1960s. Routes that were not economically viable then might well be now, and might stop lo ...

Very good. I have never made one, but round here, hazel is the frame of choice as we have lots of it but not much of the right sort of willow. As Dpack says, go careful when testing. From what I have ...

I wish more people would read the instructions, and that they were written in clear English, with someone who doesn't know how to use the thing being the Guinea pig. Writing it if you know how it work ...

Yes, I think it was a green cone. Although I don't go around sniffing it, it isn't too far from a new house next door, and they haven't complained. I think they would have done if it had smelt. It is ...

Yes, remembering back to the trolley buses, they used to have to carry a long pole to reconnect if the connection came off. It might be fun at junctions as several lorries try to go in different direc ...

We have one I use for 'noxious' waste like that. Forgotten what it is called 'green dome' or something I think. I use it for potato and tomato hulms, odd things like badly mangled pigeons the raptors ...

I take it this is the idea of putting electric pick up along roads for heavy goods vehicles to pick up. Has Boris's backing, so bound to be a non starter as the man has as good a grasp of engineering ...

I must have gone to a lot of those, but don't remember the medical one. My father was the secretary of the local section, so he had to arrange things for the lecturers for a few years. As a result I g ...

Glad you are getting on so well with the kindling. We have found a new supplier for pallets too, and husband and son went to get some from him yesterday, as well as some long ones from the window plac ...

Gz, did you go to the Faraday lectures? They were run by the IEE, and some of them were quite good. When I was 14 we had one on computers, which were huge great things taking up a full room at the tim ...

Another story I remember from school days was that in the distant past, some public buildings used acetylene as a lighting source. It was made by dripping water onto calcium carbide and stored in a ta ...
