  1. Dear All, This is just a little advance notice & hopefully to put the date in your diaries for Tracks to the Trenches #3 at Apedale, Staffordshire, UK. 13-15th July 2018 At the moment we are still shaping the event format - but we hope to build on our successful 2014 and 2016 events & deliver our fitting end to the First World War Centenary. This may be the last "Tracks to the Trenches" event in this format. Please see www.ww1-event.org - this should be updated as we start to progress the event further. At this very early stage we would be keen to establish further contact with
  2. Wartime in the Vale 2018 are pleased to announce that the 2018 show will be commemorating the End of The Great War with a show stopping WWI display, to included Horse Drawn Vehicles, Camp, Childs Soldier Training School, and some very special WWI vehicles already confirmed.

  3. I recently attended a lecture by a friend who’s been researching the Ricardo-designed petrol engines used in British WW1 tanks. They’re fascinating things in their own right, but I’m particularly interested as they were built, amongst other places, at the Mirrlees Bickerton & Day factory in Stockport where I used to work. It seems they had at least one tank as a test vehicle that used to roam the surrounding fields that later became a golf course. Some friends of mine would like to acquire a complete Ricardo tank engine and one of them has written a summary of the five engine types to hel
  4. Hi I research British tanks and tank production in WW1, and I'm in need of some help in placing the Ashford tank in the Mark IV production sequence. To do this ideally I need to know its four digit manufacturer's number (which is not 1234 as painted on it today). It should be visible internally on a metal casting at the top of the diaphragm towards the rear of the sponson openings. (Not all Mark IVs have them in this position; I'm acting on a strong hunch that I've already correctly identified the manufacturer). Ashford Borough Council have been helpful in searching for any internal
  5. Hi all Just thought I would post on here about the event we are currently putting together for the ww1 Centenary of the Somme plus the Tank trials that took place at Hatfield House. We have got lots planned so far from working replica tanks to Dog fights, Living history and talks from some of the leading Historians in the subject areas covered. http://www.hatfield-house.co.uk/event-detail.asp?event=366 If anyone would like to attend with a vehicle or display even just yourself in period kit please let us know. Our email address is admin@eventplan.co.uk or find us on face
  6. Not quite sure where to post this - hopefully here is acceptable as it is WW1 military railway equipment and not-for-profit organisation? Just a short note to let you know that the newly created “Tracks to the Trenches” Driver experience course dates for 2016 have been released. This unique “day in the life” of a WW1 light railway operating company driver (footplate experience course) uses much of our large historic collection of (British, French and US) WW1 railway engines and rolling stock. Delivered in a special presentation gift pack, the voucher has a validity of 18 months, with the
  7. Hi All, Just to let you know that the last event of the season (with the exception of Santa trains!) at the Apedale Valley Light Railway (www.avlr.org.uk) is the "Military Memories" weekend - 7/8th November from 11:30 to 4pm each day. It is planned to operate demonstration First World War, Second World War and Cold War era trains during the weekend over the whole site. In addition the ever popular Trench will be open, staffed by members from the Gordon Highlanders living History group - who will enact various scenarios dueing the weekend. Passenger trains will be running and the a
  8. www.ww1-event.org Following on from the great success of the "Tracks to the Trenches" event at the Apedale Valley Light Railway in 2014, it gives us great pleasure to announce that the event is to be repeated and developed in 2016 and 2018. Attracting over 3000 visitors from across the UK and Europe, the 2014 event also received much praise and acclaim. In a departure to previous large events, the main galas at Apedale have now moved to the 2nd weekend in May each year. 2016 (TTTT 2) – a 3 day event from 13-15th May 2016. A very similar format to the 2014 event (TTTT 1); w
  9. It is with great pleasure that we can announce that the highly acclaimed “Tracks to the Trenches” (TTTT) is set to be developed and repeated in 2016 (TTTT 2) and 2018* (TTTT 3). In line with recently announced schedules, these events are now being planned for May in their respective years. 2016 (TTTT 2) – a 3 day event from 13-15th May 2016. A very similar format to the 2014 event (TTTT 1); with photo-charters being arranged in advance of the event weekend, evening photo-shoots during the event, access all areas passes, an emphasis on Schools/Group visit packages, plus much more!
  10. Hi, I am an automotive journalist. I was editor of The Engineer weekly news magazine from 1969 to 1980 before starting my own newsletter business...Auto Industry Newsletter. For many years I took a great interest in fighting vehicles, most notably battle tanks. Also I have a deep interest in gas turbine engines for vehicles and which I have studied for many years even though they have not come to pass. My question...Does anyone know anything about Cohendet military trucks circa 1908 or thereabouts. I know they existed but have been able to find out very little about them. I think they had
  11. Dear All, Hopefully the right place to post this! Just a short note to give an update on the Tracks to the Trenches event plans, as September is getting worryingly (for the organisers) closer! This First World War centenary event is heavliy focused on the battlefield logistics - in particular the narrow gauge light railways. We have made great strides in the development of both our site and the event. The event website (http://www.ww1-event.org) is being updated as regularly as we can. The latest news is that the on-line advance ticketing facility is now live! Over the last few
  12. Good Morning. The MRT has recently issued the following press release. Release follows:- The Moseley Railway Trust will mark the centenary of the start of the First World War with a major event, entitled Tracks to the Trenches – 2014. The event will be on September 12, 13 and 14 2014. The Trust is confident that this will be one of the major narrow gauge and First World War centenary events of 2014. The First World War was one of the key turning points in European history – and narrow gauge railways played a major part in the war. All combatants made considerable use of tactica
  13. Any assistance on the following would be appreciated. Is this legal to posses and/or sell? How can I discover it's value? What would be the best way to sell it? Is anyone interested in buying it? Photos: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=30519141&id=1431045711#!/album.php?aid=2031365&id=1431045711
  14. Hi to everyone here, Interests are WW1 (landships, softskins, artillery etc). Also interested in inter-war period and WW2 vehicles. I'm not too far from Bovington and try to get there on a regular basis. Regards, Andrew
  15. Help! For a WW1 Trench project. Does anybody have the dimensions for a length of Ducboarding as used in the trenches of WW1, I need to know what was the standard length, width and the size of the timbers also the width, thickness and spacing of the cross timbers. I know some duckboards have been taken out of some excavated trenches near Ypres but don't have any measurements. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Bill
  16. Hopefully this is the most appropriate forum section to post this in. I am a volunteer with the Moseley Railway Trust (MRT) – a railway museum based near Staffordshire, UK. For many years the trust has been publishing and selling (to the Trade & public) specialist railway books. The MRT’s latest venture in this area is a joint venture with Railway Gazette International who have long since published a magazine about modern railways and the rail industry. This new venture is to reprint their 1920 special edition on (First World) War Transportation. This sponsorship arrangement has been k
  17. Dear All, I am a volunteer member of a narrow gauge railway museum charity called the Moseley Railway Trust (http://www.mrt.org.uk), who operate the Apedale Valley Light Railway in North Staffordshire, UK My main interest is in the Light Railways (& trench tramways) of WW1. I have been involved with & lead several rolling stock projects and locomotive restorations so far. One of the next projects that I am considering is a "crewe Tractor" - a small locomotive designed for the light trench tramways. It was based upon a Ford Model T chassis & could revert to road use if r
  18. I am a volunteer member of the Moseley Railway Trust (www.mrt.org.uk), based near Stoke-on-Trent, Staffs. I am also one of the key members of the event organising team. We are in the early stages of starting to plan a significant event in 2014 to raise the profile of the often overlooked, tactical narrow gauge railways & the troops who constructed/operated them as used by all combatants during WW1. These WW1 light railways played a pivotal role in both the war & shaping industry in the post war years – bringing many (as we define them now) modern advances. More details about WW
  19. Dear All, Just a quick introduction. My main interest is in WW1 vehicles - primarily the tactical narrow gauge (60cm) temporary railways used by all sides (www.wdlr.org.uk). I have a personal collection of several of the British & american freight cars/wagons. I am also a significant shareholder in a French WW1 steam loco (due to steam next year). I was heavily involved with the Salvage Squad episode covering the WW1 armoured narrow gauge petrol loco several years ago. I have been reading the forum posts on the WW1 lorry recreations/restorations - these are very intreiguing &
