No out and about photos this evening due to the rain and hail so I'll start with a a Ramsgate Railway accident.
The number one headshunt, was closed in 1987 following the incident that year and number two headshunt was equipped with new buffers and an extra long sand drag. After this accident that, too closed.
Half of one carriage went over the edge of the viaduct in Margate Road and was left teetering 70 feet above the ground for several hours. The only people on the train at the time were the driver and a shunter.
I’ve just republished the sample pages for the book we publish about the railways in Ramsgate, here is the link http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/catalogue/ramsgate_all_change.htm
The pictures in the blog post also relate to this book.
Here is what went out in the bookshop today http://michaelsbookshop.blogspot.co.uk/2017/09/the-borrowers-in-bookshop.html not much on the transport front.
Funny one today, I don’t think I will ever understand the socialising of media or whatever it is, I have the Youtube app on my phone and is sent me a notification which when I touched it started auto playing a film. Of course this means you have to block notifications for the app, one tiny slip of the finger and you are playing a vidio you haven’t chosen and are furiously trying to stop it making a noise and disturbing everyone.
Thought we had better have a plane over Ellington Park too but resisted the temptation to straighten the photo so the tree was upright
