  1. MellishR liked 30854's post in the thread Imperial units of measurement and the future?.

    Courtesy of decades of modelmaking, I can readily convert between imperial and metric, but only because I've a reason to do so. Even then, dividing (say) 9'-33/8" by 76.2 to get a meaningful answer in inches or millimetres is a lot dafter than...

  2. MellishR liked flying scotsman123's post in the thread Tornado.

    It appears an award for "outstanding paperwork project" is needed as no doubt it would qualify for that!!

    Don't care about politics, what is needed is another class 8 performer on the mainline....

  4. MellishR liked Big Al's post in the thread Crowdfunding appeal for 6201.

    So it appears that since my last comment about 30 posts ago on the logic of possibly 10A carrying out some of the work on 6201, there's been a whole load of froth (can't think of a better word) about the society/company/constitution plus a little...

  5. MellishR liked Forestpines's post in the thread West Somerset Railway Operations.

    What puts me off the idea of having military reenactors at railway events is that they are, obviously, acting, and this is clear to members of the public. Said members of the public then assume that the people operating the railway are then just...

  6. MellishR liked Matt37401's post in the thread Crowdfunding appeal for 6201.

    Not all of those phots you've posted links to happened under the watch of 10A's current owners though did they? You could argue that say the SVR's a bit 'Noddy' for painting 46521 into red in the past (for a filming job) or 75069 into BR green....

    Any effective board will include a range of skills and experience, some general to all business and some specific to the type of business they are conducting. Robin

  9. MellishR liked tracker's post in the thread West Somerset Railway Operations.

    I'm not sure that having a string of letters after your name is of any relevance to running a railway. Some friends I know are academics with degrees, Masters, PhDs etc... they have spent most of their useful career years in education and...

  10. MellishR liked staffordian's post in the thread West Somerset Railway Operations.

    I would only expect any relevent qualifications to be shown, and then only sparingly; using an entire list of degrees, professional memberships etc could be seen as crass IMHO. Staffordian Red swimming badge
