Hope that no-one minds if I try and re-create a thread that I had on the old board.

I've put it in here, as it is sort of an advert, but also rather more of a news service......

Stanegate Restorations are a small business based in Haltwhistle, Northumberland.
We specialise in supplying superb craftsmanship to the heritage sector, mainly working in timber. Our projects have included various steam related items like railway carriages and waggons of several gauges; boat refits - such as a 1909 pulling lifeboat; as well as several horse drawn vehicles - how about a coke-fired, horse-drawn chip van.......

Apart from my own motorcycles, an infernal combustion engined project has so far eluded our attentions.......

I intend to update this thread when my homepage / website is revised, and rather more often as I make additions to the various image sets on flickr.

If I haven’t already - With very best wishes for the coming year, sorry if they are a little late !
Start of January 2012 UPDATES:

Since my last updates, in mid December - on the old board, I have been posting images to the flickr account. Over the past weekend I added something in the region of 30. Some have been work-related, but a few others are not and others are retrievals from the ether or are scanned photographs. Apologies if some of the latter are a little grainy or a little different in colour balance……
For the work images, most are for the Miller and the Forcett Coach. (a few more are of Ben)

If you visit the sets index page, the *new* and *updated* markers are in the appropriate set titles, as yet I have not added markers to the images themselves.

As I have mentioned before - If you would like a little light reading, try the December 2011 issue of “Old Glory” – it has an illustrated article profiling Stanegate Restorations and Replicas. This gives a very good summary of recent projects……

Please – feel free to dip into my photostream, have a click, if you are a flickr member – you will be able add a comment or maybe even select a favourite (or several). I have added some galleries as well; these have other peoples’ images…..
Thanks for looking.

Mid to Late January Updates:

Just dropped by to say that I have just uploaded a few images of recent progress on the Forcett Coach, which just go to show that this was never going to be an easy job! The linked image shows the new and old end cills. I hope to be able to add a couple more images quite soon.

Hi there,

Glad you found your way back OK! I've looked at the pix you had trouble uploading, and the reason is that some of them exceeded the filesize limit for attachments, which was 300k.

I've increased the limit, so it should work this time if you'd like to give it another go.

Thanks.

February 2012 UPDATES:

Since my last updates, at the end of January, I have been posting more images to the flickr account. I had hoped to do this in several stages; however, by few days ago I had added something in the region of forty images.
Mostly they are work related – the first two links specifically showing further work to the Forcett Coach, the third one is the Miller Fifer…..but there are a few other subjects, as well.

Spring lambs and a happy Ben – who is really improving his skills.

If you visit the ‘Sets’ index page, the *new* and *updated* markers are in the appropriate set titles, as yet I have not added markers to the images themselves – I am using the ‘date uploaded’ marker instead.

Please – feel free to paddle in my photostream, have a click or three. If you are a flickr member – you will be able add a comment or maybe even select a favourite (or several). There are some galleries as well; these have other peoples’ images…..I have added some remarks as to why I added the selected images.

Thanks for looking.

PS, We also got onto the tele – a short segment in the first episode of “Britain’s Heritage Heroes” presented by John Craven and Jules Hudson broadcast by BBC2 on 6th February 2012. It was on iplayer....

The last update posts were in February, but during March 41 images were uploaded, and another 26 images to date in April. There should be a few more in a day or three. We have been making steady progress on a number of projects, both existing and new ones. We have another, major, project in the final stages of making the arrangements – all will be made clear in very soon, and I will be putting more updates on my homepage to take account of these changes in due course.
Forcett – http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N06/7057218157/in/set-72157627139592710/
Miller – http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N06/7073328797/in/set-72157626203069641/
Sentinel *new* – http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N06/sets/72157629374808848/
The new apprentice – Ben deDog – has continued to improve and is started to develop some real character…..and he likes the sea !
Ben – http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N06/7045061823/in/set-72157628026767272
We have also had a few “awaydays” as all work and no play makes for a stressful life…..
Coniston – http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N06/sets/72157629769684005/
If you visit the sets index page, the *new* and *updated* markers are in the appropriate set titles, as yet I have not added markers to the images themselves.
We also have just started our second trainee in her placement under the Engineering Heritage Skills Initiative. I will set up a new collection and sets to cover this scheme very shortly, as I need to take some specific images, and retrieve some others.
As I have mentioned before - If you would like a little light reading, try the April 2012 issue of “Old Glory” – it has an illustrated article covering the restoration of Berriman’s Chip Van for Beamish Museum by Stanegate Restorations and Replicas.
This project was included within the BBC2 Program “Brick by Brick – Rebuilding the Past” which was broadcast at 2100 yesterday. (Friday 13th April 2012), I believe it will be on i-player for a few more days.

Early May 2012 UPDATES:

Since my last updates, during April, I have been posting more images to the flickr account. I have done this in several stages; however, by yesterday I had added somewhere in the region of forty images. I have also updated my homepage, a further update is due very soon……
Mostly they are work related – the first link specifically shows further work to the Forcett Coach, the next one is the Miller Fifer, which is due a few extra images as we have reached a milestone – the engine runs! Which, if it will stop raining, will be photographed……..but there are a few other subjects, as well.

Many Apologies for the lateness of this post – all should become clear(ish) with the contents
Mid – late June 2012 UPDATES:

Since my last update, back in mid May, I have been uploading images to the flickr account. I have done this in several stages; however, by yesterday I had added somewhere in the region of forty images. I have also updated my homepage, to include the details of new projects……
The major item of interest is that the Foxfield Railway based North Staffordshire Railway Rolling Stock Restoration Trust (NSRRSRT) have commissioned Stanegate Restorations and Replicas to return NSR127 to operational condition. The trust have supplied an underframe and we will rebuild the body…..the Staffordshire Environmental Fund have provided a substantial grant towards the cost. Images uploaded so far are the delivery and some of the ‘before’ ones. More will follow as work progresses
NSR127 :http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N06/7186934401/in/set-72157630056015073/
Most of the new images are work related – the first link specifically shows further work to the Forcett Coach, and there has been more work recently….. the next one is the Miller Fifer, showing the engine running! Followed by a shot of the Sentinel cab (again, this is further advanced than seen here) and there are a few other subjects, as well.
Forcett :http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N06/7261970594/in/set-72157627139592710/
Miller :http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N06/7263766950/in/set-72157626203069641/
And another one of Ben, doing his best as morale and entertainments manager!
http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N06/7372153092/in/set-72157628026767272/
I’m hoping to be able to upload quite a few more images very soon – so please check back…….
If you visit the ‘Sets’ index page, the *new* and *updated* markers are in the appropriate set titles, as yet I have not added markers to the images themselves – I am using the ‘date uploaded’ marker instead.

Please – feel free to plodge in my photostream, you can click on things that interest you to get the ‘on black’ version, or for a larger image. If you are a flickr member – you will be able add a comment or maybe even select a favourite (or several). There are several galleries as well; these have other peoples’ images…..I have posted remarks as to why I added the selected images. The most recent are of “William Riley” in the Jubilee Thames Pagaent

Thanks for looking.

Many, Many Apologies for the lack of recent (!) updates – the last one was months ago !.
I’ll not bore you with the details of the reasons; it is more than a bit complicated. Suffice it to say that posting updates has not been that high a priority, although I’ve continued to add images to the flickr photostream, showing work in progress on various projects as well as a range of other subjects.

Up to November 2012 UPDATES :
Since my last update, back in mid June, I have been uploading images to the flickr account. I have done this in several stages; however, by 14th November I had added somewhere in the region of 300 images. I have also updated my homepage, to include the details of new projects……

Progress is being made on NSR127 : http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N06/8186433796/in/set-72157630056015073 Please note :- There are some more images of the latest work to be uploaded shortly.
Work continues on S&D179 – recently the scumbling has been progressed. Re-assembly will follow shortly. Forcett :http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N06/8186439918/in/set-72157627139592710
The Sentinel Steam Waggon cab and roof have been built, painted and delivered. http://www.flickr.com/photos/60884630@N06/8132105492/in/set-72157629374808848 We are looking forward to seeing the finished vehicle on display in the future.
And another one of Ben : demostrating his lifejacket – quite the sea-dog !

I’m hoping to be able to upload quite a few more images very soon – so please check back…….
If you visit the ‘Sets’ index page, the *new* and *updated* markers are in the appropriate set titles, as yet I have not added markers to the images themselves – I am using the ‘date uploaded’ marker instead.

Please – feel free to splash around in my photostream, you can click on things that interest you to get the ‘on black’ version, or for a larger image. If you are a flickr member – you will be able add a comment or maybe even select a favourite (or several).
