Re: Bute / Coniston Back to Back

Will understanding why Ms. Campbell did a 180 really matter? I think it does matter. Maybe not from a legal point of view, but - first - understanding this might give everyone else a clue what's the real problem of the Ruskin side is and - second - I doubt any operation of K7 makes sense without th...

Re: Bute / Coniston Back to Back

But possibly the most FAQ is what happened to Gina because to go from, 'she's too young to sit in a crusty old museum', to a most impassioned plea to the trustees at a meeting we attended the following July that Bluebird be displayed by BBP all over the world to what happened on 4th January was sim...

Re: Coniston Bye laws/Ruskin

This is not what I had in mind converning 'mediation'. I had though about a respected person who would so this on a voluntary basis, just in the interest of the importance of K7 to the motor sport history. Someone who can figure out, by talking to both sides, what each side has in mind and what's b...

Re: Coniston Bye laws/Ruskin

Sure, by reading here I can only listen to one side of the story and by meeting you guys on Bute I might also be a little biased towards the BBP as well, but really trying to be neutral I have very little understanding for what's going on the other side. And whenever people post here from that side...

Re: Coniston Bye laws/Ruskin

I don't understand why they can't simply give you the figures you're after. It'd save a lot of trouble, and would mean they would have K7 on display a lot quicker. They're rather quick to release documents when it suits them (The 2006 Deed of Gift for example), yet can't send you something which is ...

Re: Coniston Bye laws/Ruskin

I Never would have believed it but we are were we are but there you go thats life :| Next time you're at BBP HQ I'll show you some things you really won't believe! But on a more encouraging note - it seems there's been some progress on the floor in the BB wing. http://www.ruskinmuseum.com/content/c...

Re: Coniston Bye laws/Ruskin

Was copyrighted music used as a soundtrack? I've had videos blocked and the sound removed by Warners before. I presume that is who WMG is.

Re: Off the Rails - Train Stuff

I saw this today! 46100 "Royal Scot" just outside Lancaster. In the background is the Ashton memorial, seen by many thousands of people, when travelling North on the M6, not so far from the turn off for the Lake District! Very nice! I'm hoping to see a bit of mainline steam when I visit the UK next...

Re: Off the Rails - Train Stuff

I was a bit worried the post would be a little long-winded. Glad you enjoyed it. I really enjoyed that read, surprised myself there, and l love the steam stuff pics an especially the stories of those great machines cheating the scrap man and all the work of volunteers. Wonder if we could squeeze a ...
