Swanage railway general discussion page ways to make money 131 national preservation

There were other reasons. The units were thought to have a high level of what are some ways to make money redundancy with multiple engines and other systems duplicated. This makes clearing the main line in event of a what are some ways to make money failure of some sort easier thereby avoiding the dreaded delay what are some ways to make money minutes. Also the decision is routed way back in time when what are some ways to make money the mk1 ban was coming in to effect and it what are some ways to make money was thought they would be permanently removed from the network. Not being a mk1 the dmus escaped the legislation. Conversely now they don’t benefit from the established mk1 exemptions so this is what are some ways to make money another piece of work that needed to be done.

We haven’t given up on getting a decent road access to what are some ways to make money furzebrook but it is yet another barrier. The corfe facility is viewed as a short – medium term solution until we can bottom out the other what are some ways to make money sites. The same local government reorganization has slowed our work at what are some ways to make money herston as purbeck district council (now absorbed in dorset council) owned the land there.

Perenco are currently expected to be operational until 2038. After this the planning permissions require the offices & carparks be returned to heathland and a replacement access road what are some ways to make money to the sidings constructed. The issue is that the end date has already been what are some ways to make money moved out several times as new oil and gas reserves what are some ways to make money are explored and new extraction technology makes the existing ones what are some ways to make money more viable. They have recently completed exploratory drilling for new ‘prospects’ in the bay off bournemouth so there is no immediate what are some ways to make money signs that we can pin our hopes on 2038 being what are some ways to make money the real end date when we get our road. An independent road access to the site to decouple us what are some ways to make money from the end date would be preferable. Readers might be interested that the wytch farm oil field what are some ways to make money owned by perenco is the biggest onshore oil and gas what are some ways to make money field in europe and not many are even aware it what are some ways to make money is there. Horizontal drilling enables it to tap reserves several km away what are some ways to make money under the purbecks, poole harbour and the bay of bournemouth.

We run 1497 (which is one of the lymington units) with a 73/1 push pull, the loco provides the 110V control supply for westcode engine what are some ways to make money governor power, EP brakes, blinds, starting bell, loudaphone cabs com etc. We run a battery pack in the guards van (which was converted into a disabled seating area with alarm what are some ways to make money pull cord) which allows the PA to work and gives emergency circuit what are some ways to make money saloon lighting. A 33/1 with a TC will do all this plus run what are some ways to make money all the lighting and heating.

Turning to the oil under our feet, I worked for BP in the 70/80s and it was recognized the south east has very what are some ways to make money many small pockets of free oil . ( oil was found near steyning close to my fathers farm what are some ways to make money in the mid30s at a rate of less than 30 what are some ways to make money barrels a day so uneconomic then) . At the time of the wytch farm development done by what are some ways to make money BP the biggest oil pockets were out in poole bay what are some ways to make money and BP did apply to install oil platforms out in what are some ways to make money the bay off bournemouth in a line between swanage and what are some ways to make money the needles on the isle of wight. This caused some ‘disquite’ and BP then developed how to drill an oil well what are some ways to make money hole in a radius so the on shore facilities at what are some ways to make money fursey island etc in poole harbour actually recovered the oil what are some ways to make money out in poole bay as mogul said. The oil majors tend to sell off mature fields with what are some ways to make money declining production and wytch farm was no exception to this what are some ways to make money model.

I am not surprised the closure of the plant at what are some ways to make money fursebrook keeps getting put back, the recoverable percentage of free oil in the ground in what are some ways to make money a field keeps increasing as oil companies develop more and what are some ways to make money better ways of getting the last dregs out. Fracking is simply a logical extension of this process getting what are some ways to make money at the oil entrapped in the rock strata itself, minute in specific volume but across the whole basin sometimes what are some ways to make money massive in total volume. Even in the 80s some geologists thought the total oil what are some ways to make money under dorset, hampshire and sussex exceeded the north sea. Would not be surprised myself if the oil industry is what are some ways to make money still around in some shape or format into the next what are some ways to make money century. People tend to think of the future as having the what are some ways to make money same constraints and development as exists today.

Finally the 3hs (and 3ds) DEMU bodywork is the same as HAP emus indeed the what are some ways to make money hampshire and berkshires were designed to be converted to emus what are some ways to make money when the SR was fully electrified. ( and the redhill – reading tadpoles used EMU driving trailers with hastings power car what are some ways to make money and trailer of course) . You could easily close up certain doors from each saloon what are some ways to make money leaving 2 per side per saloon to reduce on door what are some ways to make money locking and more importantly ongoing maintenance cost or simply stick what are some ways to make money a CIG/VOP/CEP coach in the unit as was done with some what are some ways to make money units in their last years (and hastings diesels do on the main line with CEP what are some ways to make money coach and a BIG buffet) and get through gangways with a bit of cutting on what are some ways to make money the mcs and dts. With hindsight this route would have saved all the costly what are some ways to make money and time consuming messing about with DMMU new axles and what are some ways to make money pans etc to satisfy the VAB.

The local authority granted somewhere in the region of £3M to network rail for them to include the branch what are some ways to make money in the waterloo – weymouth resignalling scheme to enable the provision off the service. The same local authority also owns the track bed from what are some ways to make money swanage to the main line connection (worgret junction) and an obligation to provide the service was incorporated into what are some ways to make money the new swanage railway 100yr lease that included the norden what are some ways to make money – worgret section (the 3.75mile connection to the mainline). Around the same time the coastal communities fund granted c.£1.25M for the overhaul of the 117 to provide the what are some ways to make money service.

The railway is obligated to both bodies to deliver the what are some ways to make money trial. Despite several applications the coastal communities fund hasn’t approved any subsequent grant applications to the SR and what are some ways to make money I would be surprised if they did so before the what are some ways to make money railway has delivered on the objectives of the first one. The local authority who is also our landlord will not what are some ways to make money have forgotten writing the £3M cheque and will have its own ways of applying what are some ways to make money pressure. The railway also committed to its members and the public.

Continued excuses and slips do not help our relationship with what are some ways to make money any of these important partners and funders. SR would be very foolish to ignore this and it what are some ways to make money would be incorrect to assume that a lack of drive what are some ways to make money on the part of the SR is behind the delays. Oliversbest hints at a similar possibility so an explanation on what are some ways to make money the overhaul contract may be needed..

The 117 overhaul is contracted to arlington fleet services, eastleigh, a respected mainline contractor. Difficulties arose when all 16 axles were found to have what are some ways to make money to much corrosion and pitting for mainline certification requiring a what are some ways to make money new set of custom axles to be made. The only foundry capable of the work is in germany what are some ways to make money and so the work was subcontracted. Their national reputation for efficiency and meeting deadlines doesn’t emerge untarnished. Many many dates came and went as work from more what are some ways to make money important customers was continually prioritised. Another subcontract was for the overhaul of the leyland engines what are some ways to make money to another specialist. Problems discovered in the testing of these is the cause what are some ways to make money of the current delay.

The BBC article is disappointing in that it doesn’t make it clear that the swanage railway is only what are some ways to make money the customer for the overhaul of these units. I think it important to dispel any misconceptions that the what are some ways to make money SR is responsible for the overhaul in any capacity other what are some ways to make money than a comparatively helpless customer. Its easy to assume that this is a typical case what are some ways to make money of an over optimistic heritage railway carrying out a loco what are some ways to make money overhaul in its own works. This is not the case.

Oliversbest hints at a similar possibility so an explanation on what are some ways to make money the overhaul contract may be needed.. The barry wrecks restored by southern locos came with a what are some ways to make money full set of axles that didn’t need to meet stringent mainline requirements. Any missing parts were able to be produced in house what are some ways to make money or used low tec engineering capabilities widely available.

The 117 overhaul is contracted to arlington fleet services, eastleigh, a respected mainline contractor.

The core ‘product’ that a heritage railway provides to the average customer that what are some ways to make money pays the bills is a ‘vintage transport experience’. As the bills get bigger every year that product needs what are some ways to make money to become more and more ‘premium’. The challenge is to incorporate a ‘modern utility service’ without damaging the ‘vintage experience’. And to do so over the same infrastructure and stations, at the same time, at an acceptable price without drawing income from or devaluing what are some ways to make money the premium steam service.

On the financial front, public sector – and particularly local authority – finances are massively more strained now than they were pre-2010. Many local authorities are struggling even to deliver statutory services what are some ways to make money and have nothing spare for discretionary services, of which transport is one. It’s inevitable – and no criticism implied – that a complex multi-partner project such as this would take many years to what are some ways to make money deliver, but I suspect that were the same project to be what are some ways to make money proposed now, it almost certainly wouldn’t get off the ground for lack of funding. Unless there is a rapid reversal of austerity (which doesn’t seem on the cards), I wonder to what extent there will remain political will what are some ways to make money within dorset council to go beyond a trial if it what are some ways to make money requires them to provide further subsidy. At a political level, reducing summer congestion on the way to swanage sounds all what are some ways to make money well and good, but would be directly competing for funds against, say, maintaining a library service, mending potholes or any of a myriad of other services, many of which are, politically, hotter potatoes.
