The prototypes were the most powerful British locomotives. The model was initially designed by R J Bray using the freelance 'Chub' locomotive as the basis of the Y4 and construction described by Ross Harrison in Engineering in Miniature magazine commencing in late The model was extensively redesigned in by Doug Hewson to be "very near to scale" and new patterns for prototypical cylinders and wheels with correct oval spokes were made.
Other significant changes include redesigned brake gear, repositioning of steam brake cylinder, redesigned ash-pan, and addition of stainless-steel radiant superheater elements. Because of the scope and nature of Doug Hewson's redesign, in general the two different model parts are not interchangeable.
Doug Hewson intended the locomotive to be a beginner's locomotive as well as one for the experienced modeler.
Doug Hewson's design does not include a boiler water-pump as he did not approve of them! It has two injectors. The model makes a small but powerful hauler, Doug Hewson has hauled 12 adults with his, and the short wheelbase allows it to traverse curves down to 10' radius. The redesign by Doug Hewson had a separate very complete and detailed construction series complete with drawings in Engineering in Miniature UK magazine commencing in Volume 33, Issue number 9, March Sign In Don't have an account?

Categories :. Cancel Save.These locomotives were similar to the NBR G Class but had flat-topped, instead of round-topped, tanks. In order to shunt locations with tight curves and weight restrictions, two T locomotives were purchased from Neilson and Company to one of that company's standard designs by the GER, and this was followed by an order for a further two locomotives in In — these four locos were rebuilt under James Holdenthe work including new boilers, steam brakes, and covered cabs.
In two new locomotives were built at Stratford Worksidentical to the rebuilt Class, but with slightly higher bunkers, and a further two locomotives to this new design were built, also at Stratford, in Four locomotives had been withdrawn or sold before The remaining four passed into London and North Eastern Railway ownership at the grouping in Two locomotives, and were scrapped in Number was also scrapped inand was sold in Number was withdrawn in Numbers and became departmental locomotives at Stratford, with the former being withdrawn inafter having been used as a stationary boiler.

Great Eastern Railway locomotives.The London and South Western Railway B4 class was a class of tank engines originally designed for station piloting and dock shunting. They were later used extensively in Southampton Docks for nearly half a century.
They were unusual in having inside Stephenson valve gear but outside cylinders and coal bunkers on the footplate inside the cab. The class were originally built with Adams's design of stovepipe chimney, although these were later replaced by a lipped version designed by Adams' successor, Dugald Drummond.
Some examples also had cut away cabs to improve visibility.
They were designed for shunting in locations with a sharp curves, such as the dockyard at Devonport and as pilots at the major stations. A further ten locomotives were ordered in which were delivered in November and December of that year under order D6.
Drummond designed a similar class of five locomotives inwith a slightly smaller boiler and lipped chimney. These were delivered during under order K These locomotives were originally regarded as a new class. However, Drummond's successor Robert Urieconsidered them to be so similar to the originals, that they were merged with the B4 class in The first ten locomotives were allocated to major stations throughout the system including EastleighExmouth JunctionBournemouth and Plymouth Friary for use on Cattedown Wharfs and the Turnchapel branch.
In November the LSWR purchased the Southampton Docksand so both new and existing B4s were sent there over the next few years to replace the existing motive power as they became worn out.L\u0026SWR Class 'B4' 0-4-0T No. 96 \
By their use as station pilots had ceased except at Exeter and fourteen were working in Southampton Docks. Other members of the class were assigned to various depots around the LSWR system, for yard and dock shunting. At least two were retained at Eastleigh one of which was used to shunt the cramped goods yard at Winchester City railway station. The locomotives used by Southampton Docks, were also given names reflecting the destinations of ships then sailing from Southamton numbers.
Withdrawals resumed in following the introduction of diesel shunters and by only three survived. These were withdrawn in It has been preserved on the Bluebell Railway where, in the days before the line had any diesel locomotives, it was often used as a shunter.

On display at the Snibston Discovery Museum until March Purchased in Under the Whyte notation for the classification of steam locomotivesrepresents one of the simplest possible types, that with two axles and four coupled wheels, all of which are driven.
The wheels on the earliest four-coupled locomotives were connected by a single gear wheelbut from the wheels were usually connected with coupling rods to form a single driven set. The notation T indicates a tank locomotive of this wheel arrangement on which its water and fuel is carried on board the engine itself, rather than in an attached tender.
In Britain, the Whyte notation of wheel arrangement was also often used for the classification of electric and diesel-electric locomotives with side-rod-coupled driving wheels. Under the UIC classification used in Europe and, in more recent years, in simplified form in the United States, an is classified as B German and Italian if the axles are connected by side rods or gearing and Frenchindependent of axle motoring.
The UIC's Bo classification for electric and diesel-electric locomotives indicates that the axles are independently motored, which would be under the Whyte notation.
The term Four-coupled is often used for locomotives. Four-wheeled is also sometimes used, but this term can also encompass other wheel arrangements, for example Stephenson's Rocket which was an four-wheeled locomotive. The former were more common in Europe and the latter in the United States, except in the tightest of situations such as that of a shop switcherwhere overall length was a concern. The earliest locomotives were tender engines and appeared as early as c.
The tank engines were introduced in the early s. The type was found to be so useful in many locations that they continued to be built for more than a century and existed until the end of the steam era. Richard Trevithick 's CoalbrookedalePen-y-Darren and Newcastle locomotives were of the type, although in their cases the wheels were connected by a single gear wheel. The first to use coupling rods was Locomotion No.
The latter two locomotives later worked on the Bolton and Leigh Railway. A four-wheeled configuration, where all the wheels are driving wheelsuses all the locomotive's mass for traction but is inherently unstable at speed.
The type was therefore mainly used for switchers United States and shunters United Kingdom. Because of the lack of stability, tender engines of this type were only built for a few decades in the United Kingdom.
They were built for a longer period in the United States. The possible tractive effort of an within normal axle load limits was not enough to move large loads. Bythey had therefore largely been superseded for most purposes by locomotives with more complex wheel arrangements.
They nevertheless continued to be used in situations where tighter radius curves existed or the shorter length was an advantage. Thus, they were commonly employed in dockyard work, industrial tramwaysor as shop switchers. The wheel arrangement was also used on specialised types such as fireless locomotivescrane tankstram engines and geared steam locomotives.
It was also widely used on narrow gauge railways. In New South Wales, Dorrigo Steam Railway and Museum has preserved twelve steam locomotives and eight diesel locomotives, a total of twenty examples, all on the one site.Very responsive, very helpful even once we got there.
A trip we will never forget. The guest houses and hotels were awesome, and the activities were great. Rental car was awesome and it was overall a fantastic trip. On our trip, we met a few other Americans.
Told them about Nordic Visitor and they were impressed. I found Nordic Visitor's website very user-friendly. I love that all the documents sent was super easy to just hand the concierge and the 2 excursions we booked already had our names down. I loved the 2 excursions in the package we chose. Overall, it exceeded my expectations and I'm so glad I chose this particular trip. We booked a couple tours outside of Nordic Visitor and saw a huge difference between what you booked and what we booked ourselves.
The quality of the tours from Nordic Visitor were so much better than what we booked on our own.

We quickly regretted not working with you for our last minute additions. Hanna was great to work with and very accommodating with our requests. We recommended Nordic Visitor to many people we chatted with on our trip. Thanks for a great trip. Even though all bookings were done by internet the process seemed very personal and I had every confidence that arrangements would be carried out without any hassles.
The trip was absolutely amazing and we had the time of our lives. Everything that Nordic Visitor arranged went perfectly and we had no issues whatsoever. The organization and professionalism of every aspect of the trip was remarkable. Can't praise Nordic Visitor and Hanna Lara, in particular, enough. My daughter and I had an excellent time in Kiruna during the Chinese New Year.
I would like to thank Sofia Sundkvist who assisted us throughout the trip. She is very responsive and accomodating. We slightly changed our plans and she always quickly responded to me by email and helped us with what we needed. Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to meet her in person, but all the people (from Nordic Visitor) whom we met throughout this trip are excellent people. They always carry a smile, happy with what they are doing, experienced and knowledgeable.
Everything was well planned out giving me enough time to see plenty with enough time to explore Reykjavik as well. It was great to have all the tours booked for me before arrival, so I only had to focus on relaxing and enjoying all the beauty that Iceland has to offer. I will definitely consider booking another trip to Iceland or to any of the other locations Nordic Visitor offers. Thank you for such a great trip. Margret is an absolute superstar. She was attentive and fully understood my needs.
I will be recommending Nordic Visitor to everyone I know who is seeking a great service in the areas you look after, and I will be using you guys again in the future. Thank you for making our Icelandic trip unforgettable. All of the hotels were wonderful, and the staff was so nice. Everything was in order, and there were no glitches with any of our reservations. We especially loved the travel guide the itineraries were well laid out and we made good use of the suggested highlights and optional activities.
We will definitely recommend Nordic Visitor to any friends who may be considering this type of trip.

DDoSThe number of IP-enabled IoT devices has increased dramatically in the last several years and according to IHS, it is predicted to reach the staggering number of 30. This assumption was however proven wrong in February 2017. In February 2017, a new Windows Trojan containing IoT attack code was detected in the wild by ASERT and other malware researchers.
What was different about this Windows Trojan is that in addition to infecting Windows computers, it also scanned for vulnerable IoT devices and then proceeded to infect them with the Mirai IoT botnet code.
This means that if a Windows computer infected by this Trojan, is connected to the networks inside the corporate firewalls, the Windows computer will start to scan for and infect all those vulnerable IoT device behind the barriers which were previously believed to be safe from attackers.
These resources are in almost all cases, NOT protected against DDoS attacks originating from the inside and are therefore very vulnerable against this kind of attack. Botnet DDoS malware and traditional Ransomware malware also started to cross-pollinate in 2017 as the attackers realized that DDoS attacks against network infrastructures can be far more devastating than infecting end-user computers.
This has however happened without considering the security aspects and the attackers are now busily taking control of these devices, using them against their owners for monetary gain. The Windows Mirai Spreader was a game changer, opening the door for infecting IoT devices inside corporations and using them to launch attacks against vulnerable resources inside the corporate perimeters.
However, a network which is designed and secured according to network security best practices using segmentation, monitoring, DDoS mitigation and stateless security devices will be able to detect and mitigate these attacks. Unfortunately, trying to secure the network while under attack is almost impossible which means that preparation is key. Secure your networks before your IoT devices revolt against you.
