Re: Pre-nationalisation station use

Another query is over Turnham Green and Ravenscourt Park (LSWR services withdrawn 1916), and Stamford Brook (never served by LSWR trains) - all on an originally LSWR line: when did management (and station operation) transfer from LSWR (or SR) to Underground (MDR/LPTB)? My understanding is that owner...

Re: Pre-nationalisation station use

A few further thoughts: Wandsworth Road and Clapham Road (on the LCDR/SECR section of the South London Line) remained served by LBSCR services after withdrawal of SECR services in c1916. Were Coulsdon South (present name) and Merstham, on the SE/SEC section of the Brighton mainline always served by ...

Re: Pre-nationalisation station use

And a further thought - a number of stations were jointly owned (Aylesbury, Carlisle and Bristol TM come to mind), and operated by a joint committee of the owners, which did not however run any train services (done by the owning and sometimes other companies)

Re: Pre-nationalisation station use

Pre grouping two examples I can think of - the Great Eastern's Shepreth branch, used only by GN services to Cambridge; and Ryde Pier Head and Esplanade - owned jointly by the LSW and LBSC, but only used by IoW and IoWC. In the late pre-nationalisation period, when did LNER services into Fenchurch St...

Re: RO Archive

Digital versions of the RO were produced and made available to the RCTS Yahoo groups (Library and Officers') from September 2008, until they were made available on the website (from c2013) - this was an initiative started by Terry Silcock, and AIUI they came out of the RO production cycle at some st...

Re: e-mail clent or e-mail service

There are alternatives to Thunderbird, but I wouldn't suggest you go there unless you really don't like Thunderbird - I doubt they offer any great advantages. What I would suggest is that, to have all your e-mail in one place, you add your other e-mail accounts to Thunderbird (it can handle multiple...

Re: e-mail clent or e-mail service

Sorry, but every time I think I am getting to grips with emails I seem to go backwards and become more confused. Going back a step. Accessing WLM is just like it was in the beginning. All emails can be accessed and new ones created but only sent when on line. Thus, the freeserve history will be acc...

Re: e-mail clent or e-mail service

Would I be correct in saying that when I access my emails using Live Mail as client they are downloaded onto my computer and should remain on it Yes. When you run WLM it will go and get (download) emails onto your computer, for you to read (whether or not you do so) whilst if I use orange.co.uk as ...

Re: e-mail clent or e-mail service

In addition I have a second route to access the same emails as above. This is via https://web.orange.co.uk On this I am logged in by username peter@hall59.freeserve.co.uk which is my email address and also a password. When I press login using these details I am taken to http://email10.orange.co.uk/...

Re: e-mail clent or e-mail service

No, it's the other way round. Freeserve is your e-mail service (or an alias of it - your 'Mail Account - Hall59.freeserve.co' is the 'mailbox' I was referring to), and Windows Live Mail the client, running on your computer, and communicating with freeserve (but no further). I don't know Windows Live...
