That's exploded as in "enlarged in detail", as opposed to "applied use of nitroglycerine"? :P


(There are a number of Flying Scotsman haters here, too.)

I think you'll find any mention whatsoever of the Daily Mail is not advised on here.

The Daily Mail also published a rather nice view and guide to the controls of "Tornado" when it was built.

And if the eagle was still about, they would have probably done a good one to.

I don't suppose that the majority of people here could remember or even know of the Eagle - but you're right. I'm sure somewhere I've still got the issue with then then new H.M.S. Salisbury in it.
The Daily Mail also published a nice centre spread featuring the cab and labelling the controls of "Tornado" after it was built.

But not before mine! I remember a loco cutaway which I thought was an A3.Would have been around 1962, whereas the Internet search produces stuff around 1950.

Well when I sat O level technical drawing using a pencil and paper in the 1970's we called it an exploded view, no Autocad then and an eraser was frowned on, and I can well remember the exploded views in the Eagle, wish I still had the copies I bought every week, gave me an interest in engineering for a living.

I saw that. It looked very good. I didn't buy it.

Mainly because it is a terrible Tory rag masquerading as a newspaper with stories based on half cocked, half baked wibbling, generally about foreigners, which bear little connection with the real facts ;)

Still better than the Express mind!

I've long held the view that The Beano is the only newspaper you can trust.

None - they all push a particular agenda abased upon their owners wishes and political bias rather than objectively report the news. The last one I bought was the Northern Echo but it is of little use in Milton Keynes!

For news I listen to Radio 4 which seeing as it manages to upset Tory and Labour types must be fairly good!

I might, as Kermit suggests, try the Beano!
