The Early Beginnings Of Air Transportation

california101   April 29, 2018   Comments Off on The Early Beginnings Of Air Transportation

It is difficult to imagine not being able to catch a flight to travel around the world these days, but this technology has not been around for that long. The first ever controlled heavier-than-air controlled flight occurred within Connecticut by Gustave Whitehead in 1901. This predated the Famous Wright Brothers flight by a whole two years. Whitehead’s engine powered plane with glider-like wings flew over 800 meters at an altitude of fifteen metres. Here in this article we look at the early history of the aeroplane and look at how important air transportation is today. Since then, replicas of Whitehead’s plane have been flown successfully, his flight becoming the first real milestone in heavier-than-air powered flight in the 19th century. The highly publicised flights of the Wright Brothers however are far more well-known, with the flights they organised in Carolina in December 1903. These were regarded by the Federation Aeronautique Internationale (FAI) as the first sustained and controlled heavier-than-air power flight. The flight by Whitehead was not well known until the Wright Brothers fame was already world-wide. Air transportation and heavier-than-air aviation was very popular in the first decade of the 20th century with many different inventors making claims of short flights. Many of these were verified and others were not. Lyman Gilmore claimed to have flown a plane successfully in 1902 but there were no witnesses to back this up. A farmer in New Zealand claimed to have created a monoplane that flew in March 1903. The Wright Brothers continued to conduct flights in Ohio during the years 1904 and 1905, inviting their family and friends to witness. Due to a failed attempt that occurred in 1904, members of the media did not attend and witness the later flights. The history of the powered flight and air transportation created… Read more »

Guide To Lighting Effects For Bachmann Trains Or Any Model Railroad

california101   April 26, 2018   Comments Off on Guide To Lighting Effects For Bachmann Trains Or Any Model Railroad

Thinking of adding a new dimension to your model railroad? Maybe you’ve already designed a spectacular scenario, complete with varying lighting effects and are looking for a new idea to incorporate? We have ideas that just might light the way when you’re ready to take it to the next level. Removed or Overhead Lighting – These lights are what you have in your room to showcase your model railroad. These lighting sources, sometimes referred to as track lighting, should showcase the project in its entirety. One idea is the inclusion of strip lighting with adjustable heads that allow you to shine the light on any particular area. Consider adding a dimmer switch to the room’s overhead lighting too. It’s a great way to define the light – if you’re working with small pieces from Bachmann trains, the brighter light will reduce eye strain or if you’re showing off your masterpiece, by dimming the lights, you can change the effect of your presentation. Why Would I Even Want to Modify the Lighting? There are a few reasons for using adjustable lighting sources: To recreate dawn or dusk scenes – consider using low watt pink or blue bulbs. They can be found in hobby shops or hardware stores. Alternatively, electroluminescent cable lighting can be used with the same effect. This is ideal for placement behind scenery with little height since the cable is easily hidden out of sight. To light billboards, streetlights and even railroad crossing lights. Small headlights for automobiles. It’s all about creativity. You’re limited only by your imagination. Few things allow us to “write our own rules”, but when it comes to designing Bachmann trains or any model railroad, you, as its owner, are allowed complete creative liberty. Keep in mind too that nothing’s permanent. If one method doesn’t… Read more »

Transportation Of Dangerous Goods Online Safety Training Courses

california101   April 16, 2018   Comments Off on Transportation Of Dangerous Goods Online Safety Training Courses

On August 15, 2002 the federal Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG) regulations came into force. The mission of these regulations is to promote safety in handling and transportation of dangerous goods. There is a requirement for training transportation of dangerous goods, but how can anyone ensure that all individuals taking the training comprehend it? The challenge is that most online TDG training courses only offer a summary of the information. Few of them even work to abide by the principles of adult learning. This is a concern for anyone who travels the highways of Canada, as there are so many drivers transporting dangerous goods across the country on those same roads. When searching online TDG course, there are very few, if any online TDG courses that are more than 45 or 65 minutes in length, which is not enough time to effectively provide training. Many of these courses are simply comprised of 20 minutes of information, accompanying text and a few questions. Due to the short amount of time, these are popular courses for people only looking to produce a training card, but should that be good enough? As we know, Good enough seldom is.
