  • FoodSaver Review // Glasgow Mummy #ad

    Here's a little vlog to show you how the FoodSaver FFS002 Vacuum Sealing System works. I used it to marinade some chicken in curry paste. I realise that you don't need to marinade chicken for a Thai Green Curry, but it happened to be what I was making and seemed like a good way to show you the machine! This is a paid for advertisement video - I was sent a Food Saver FFS002 to review for my blog. All opinions are honest and are my own. Full post can be found here: www.glasgowmummy.blogspot.com What I'm wearing: Flared Jersey Top from Cos http://glasgowmummy.blogspot.co.uk/2015/01/januaryjoy-refresh-your-style.html Glasses, Tom Ford from SpecsDirect2u http://glasgowmummy.blogspot.co.uk/2013/03/review-new-glasses-specsdirect2u.html

  • Mailbag style video with stuff from the Glasgow meet-up.

    The Glasgow meet-up was incredible. So many technically minded people. We did get booted out of the Subway sandwich shop in the politest way possible and then spent the next 8 hours across the road in one of the rooms in a large super-bar. Good food, drink and company. Many of those present reinforced my belief that there's more than one type of human, and some of us are designated as engineers from birth, with a brain optimised for designing, building, programming and maintaining. I'm looking forward to the next meet-up. Thanks again to all those who brought gifts. It's notable that the knife is intriguing in that it's got a very precisely engineered blade. It's surprisingly light and VERY sharp. I'm actually wary of using it in case I damage it's perfect blade. The pendant is appare...

From here we did a couple of trips through Mossend yard to Motherwell and back. Here we purchased a cuppa and rolls from the cafe bar just outside the station entrance. Kenny then drove us to Holytown for the afternoon.About 4.30pm we split with Kenny and Les and made our way back to Glasgow central for an hour or so. Our Pendo left at 6.40pm and we arrived back in Milton Keynes at 11.30. I was home for midnite and really, really tired. ZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz..

In 1986 the British Railways Board divided its operations into a number of sectors (sectorisation). The sector responsible for long-distance express trains assumed the brand-name InterCity, although many routes that were previously operated as InterCity services were assigned to other sectors (e.g. London to King's Lynn services were transferred to the commuter sector Network SouthEast). British Rail first used the term Inter-City in 1950 as the name of a train running between London Paddington and Wolverhampton Low Level. This was part of an overall policy of introducing new tr...

InterCity (or, in the earliest days, the hyphenated Inter-City) was introduced by British Rail in 1966 as a brand-name for its long-haul express passenger services (see British Rail brand names for a full history). In 1986 the British Railways Board divided its operations into a number of sectors (sectorisation). The sector responsible for long-distance express trains assumed the brand-name InterCity, although many routes that were previously operated as InterCity services were assigned to other sectors (e.g. London to King's Lynn services were transferred to the commuter sector Network SouthEast). British Rail first used the term Inter-City in 1950 as the name of a train running between London Paddington and Wolverhampton Low Level. This was part of an overall policy of introducing new train names in the post World War II period. The name was applied to the business express which ran from London in the morning and returned in the afternoon, and became part of the railway lore of the West Midlands. West Midlands residents always believed that it was the success of this one train that led to the adoption of the name as a British Rail brand in 1966. This belief was supported by the timeline: in 1966 The Inter-City was heading towards its ultimate demise in 1967, when the mainline London-West Midlands service was consolidated into the newly electrified route via Rugby. HST services were first introduced in 1976 on the Great Western Main Line from London Paddington to Bristol, Cardiff and Swansea. Formations consisted of 2 first-class, a Restaurant Buffet and 4 standard-class Mark 3 carriages with a Class 43 power car at each end. East CoastInterCity 125 HST services started in 1977: Typically 2 first-class, a Restaurant Kitchen, Buffet Standard and 4 standard-class British Rail Mark 3 carriages with a Class 43 power car at each end. These progressively replaced Class 55 "Deltics" which were finally withdrawn in 1981. Later, as catering needs changed, the Restaurant Kitchen was replaced by a fifth standard-class coach. InterCity 225: a Class 91 electric locomotive, nine Mark 4 coaches and a Driving Van Trailer (DVT) operating in push-pull mode; introduced in 1990, with electrification completed in 1991. This saw most of the HSTs transferred to Great Western and Cross-Country routes but some remained for the runs to/from Aberdeen and Inverness. West CoastLondon Euston to Wolverhampton used Class 86 electric locomotives hauling Mark 2 carriages and operated at 100 mph. Euston to Glasgow services used Class 87 and Class 90 locomotives hauling Mark 3 coaches and operated at 110 mph. Euston to Holyhead services used Class 47 hauled Mark 2s or HSTs. From 1988, West Coast trains operated in push-pull mode with a DVT at the London end of the train. Before DVTs were introduced, larger fleets of Classes 81–87 were used to haul the trains conventionally. Class 50s operated in pairs north of Preston until electrification was completed in 1974. Great Western – Intercity 125s from new, which replaced Class 52s. Services were also operated by Mark 2 carriages hauled by Class 47s and 50s; later these were transferred to Network SouthEast and replaced by Class 165 DMUs. Anglia – Class 86 electrics hauling Mark 1 and Mark 2 carriages using Mark 2 Driving Brake Standard Opens in push-pull mode. Class 47s were used before electrification in 1987. Some routes transferred to Network SouthEast, leaving London-Norwich and the London-Harwich boat-train with InterCity. Cross Country – Intercity 125s but with only one first-class carriage, and standard-class seats in the buffet car replaced the restaurant. Mark 2 carriages hauled by Class 47 diesel locomotives. Services operating north of Birmingham on the West Coast main line switched to electric traction using Class 86 and Class 90 locomotives. DVTs were not used. Midland Mainline – Class 45, 46 and 47 locomotives hauling Mark 1 and Mark 2 carriages. HSTs replaced the loco-hauled trains in the 1980s. Gatwick ExpressOriginally used dedicated Class 423 Electric Multiple Units as part of the Southern Region. Prior to being transferred to InterCity the service ran from London Victoria calling at Clapham Junction, East Croydon (sometimes via Redhill) and Gatwick Airport running via Haywards Heath to Brighton. The service was transferred to InterCity with Class 73 electro-diesel locomotives (electric third-rail current or diesel-powered) hauling Mark 2 coaches and a modified Class 414 driving motor carriage were introduced in 1984 in push-pull mode. When InterCity took over, the service only served London Victoria and Gatwick Airport.
