The Pennsylvania Railroad (PRR) T1 Steam Locomotive Trust is a non-profit organization that believes in thinking differently about preservation. Through hard work, dedicated volunteers and the financial support of many generous donors from around the globe, the T1 Trust is constructing PRR T1 5550. Slated to become the fifty-third locomotive of its class when complete, 5550 combines stunning art deco design with a unique 4-4-4-4 wheel arrangement. The goal is simple; to provide mainline steam excursion service, and to set the World Speed Record for a steam locomotive. […]

Tnb – Gloriana – The Queen’s Rowbarge

Por |diciembre 28th, 2015|

Gloriana

is the first Royal barge built for over 250 years. However, her design and build used structures and techniques that have changed little since the clinker built (with the planks overlapping) long-boats of the Viking age and carries on a centuries-old tradition of Royal rowbarges on the Thames. Its similarity to the vessels in the famous Canaletto painting The River Thames with St. Paul’s Cathedral on Lord Mayor’s Day is immediately apparent. With an overall length of ninety-two feet Gloriana is bigger than her predecessors, which were typically between sixty and seventy-five feet. However, like them she carries eighteen oarsmen.

127

Duncan’s Minisec had been a parting gift from Colin, and he was not yet completely familiar with its controls. There had been nothing really wrong with his old unit, and he had left it behind with some regret; but the casing had become stained and battle-scarred, and he had to agree that it was not elegant enough for Earth.

Juan Manuel Grijalvo – Los Reyes Magos y Papá Noel – Día sin coches – 2015

Por |septiembre 22nd, 2015|

Grabado de Gustave Doré

Dedicado a Marta Román Rivas

22 de Septiembre de 2015 – Día sin coches

>>>

Verá usted, yo nací en 1954.

En aquella época las Navidades
se celebraban montando «Belenes» en las casas.

Eran complejas representaciones del nacimiento de Jesús
durante un viaje familiar impuesto por los ocupantes romanos.

En dichas instalaciones eran imprescindibles las figuras de
los tres Reyes Magos de Oriente: Melchor, Gaspar y Baltasar.

Las fiestas empezaban con la redacción de la carta anual. En esencia, era una lista de los juguetes que deseaban los niños. Inexplicablemente, conseguíamos hacerla sin ver miles de anuncios en la televisión. […]
