  1. Haven't they seen the open canal map app?
  2. Water can run down the exhaust if the outlet is in a poor position, or if the stern got low in the water and then refloated, thus tipping a silencer full into the engine.
  3. Thanks everyone! I'll give them all a shout and see who can help.
  4. Hey folks, I'm doing some work on my gearbox and have noticed that the chrome is quite pitted on the rollers of the output shaft end bearing, also it looks like it's sleeve/face that is pressed into the reduction box is also pitted. Does anyone know of a good source for these parts? Thanks! S
  5. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F254345702195 Not a boat but thought it'd be best seen here rather than the engine threads.
  6. Thanks I have an appointment to go to Wakefield to view these next week and some other documents relating to the tramway itself. Hopefully between there and the kind offer by George I will have all I need..
  7. Thanks that is a good contact, I shall try to get hold of him!
  8. Hey folks. This is a bit of a long shot but does anyone have any copies of the peak forest canal enabling acts by any chance? Or any information regarding the tramway built at Marple for use before the lock flight was constructed.. I have already put in a request for these from crt but it'll take ages and I might need them sooner than that.. All the best! S
  9. Also just to say, here's the story of the lost river class butty, Fal. https://www.canalboat.co.uk/canal-boats/me-and-my-boats-carry-on-cruising-1-5748556
  10. I agree really, it's nice to have a start point to look from though. I did a lot of searching last night, comparing paints to the photo of Yeo that I have in colour and think I have found a good contender. It could well come out looking wrong but for me it is the colour feeling in that photo (regardless of light, processing or 1960s camera film) that I would like to be faithful to.
  11. Thanks, if I can't find it I'll give him a shout.. That's much appreciated, thanks!
  12. Thanks, I had searched for a good while to no avail, I guess having 'Bradley blue' in the search wasn't the best plan.. It seems that there is a panetone number to go with now! Many thanks, and I'm sorry to have duplicated a thread.
  13. Here's a pic to see if anyone has an idea on the precise colour. It was taken at Hawkesbury junction late 1963 Thanks
  14. Woah, seems like I've hit a blank..
