Good morning folks. It’s dark, dry and mild here in Northwest Leicestershire, another fine day is forecast for this area today.
I’m up and about early due to the quietness outside. The road is closed and most traffic diverted, so it’s peaceful and I’m used to the constant background noise of traffic.
I will be at the CFR all day today, I intend to have a private running session.
Another picture from the CFR archives:-

Morning Paul/Folks.

Must have been distracted the last few days, missed a couple of things on here i should have noticed.

One of my pictures tweeked by David, and a picture of a famous early railway bridge by Alpine Andy, did anyone guess it was Causey Arch, as i could not find it with a search?

Think i need to keep up with things better than i am.

Anyhow a picture...

Good morning. from Northamptonshire. Bit cool this morning when I walked Freddie, even with a cardigan on (me, not the dog. That would look stupid). Hoping for some nice weather this weekend.

Good morning from a dull County Armagh. I've been earmarked for wall prepping before the wall pampering man comes next week. It's going to be some operation as that part of the house is old with some dampness so this requires anti damp paint, foil, lining paper and top paper. This is SWMBO territory, which I try to keep well away from. I'll do my bit then escape to the shed.
Have a good day.

'pampering' was a typo, but still appropriate in this case.

Morning folks, after embarrassing myself yesterday on this august forum with an obviously totally wrong calculation, I'm going to do the decent thing and blame my equipment, and buy a new calculator ! Second day of my holiday so won't be doing much, but I have finished my second coach repaint, only one more to do:party:

I hope you didn't pay an inflated price for it.

May be the seal to the rim :nod: :nod:

Morning sunny, back in the homeland after my trip south - seems that I might have sorted father's bungalow for good :):) and no, it wasn't one quick tap with a bulldozer :rolleyes::rolleyes:

Off to the dotter's tomorrer, for No2 son's birthday celebration, a slightly more muted affair in these times, but he can be a bit of an anti-social sod person, so it'll be good to catch up >:)>:)

As Mr Rhino has already mentioned, it could be corrosion of the wheel rim, or a damaged rim as the most likely cause.

Looking at that photo of Tau station platform they must have had some amazing carriages - or parachutes!

The other thing is, was the valve changed, it should have been but it may not have been (penny pinching by the company) and be the issue, regardless the wheel should have been checked for leaks when the task was completed.

I have had a tyre where the rim seal didn't quite take for some reason - it would suddenly lose a few psi without warning - pump it up and it was good for another month. The tyre people eventually located the issue and dealt with it FOC even though it was six months after the tyre was fitted :clap::clap:

Wheel / tyre sorted (hopefully).. A steel rim, 20+ years old, and the outer edge where the bead sits, was looking like I had been practice-welding on it!
attack with a hammer (to chip the rust-off, followed by a good going-over with a wire-wheel, and a splodge of black sealer all-round.

At 27PSI (I had put 30 in at 8am) it was almost sealed, but at 32PSI it was 'fizzing' in several places.

No charge, so a happy me. :):clap:

My last tyre episode was actually the wheel structure failing
