Hazem El Masri after appearing at Bankstown court where all charges against him were dropped. Nick Moir As El Masri has said: The result was “probably … the toughest thing in my whole life”.

27/10/18 – Adrian, looking on the internet hasn’t really brought much to light regarding dimensions for the Ford, although Wikipedia and the Texas Transportation Museum both state that the Ford Model TT, introduced in and replaced by the Model AA in , had a wheelbase of ins/cms.
Each and every one of us will have at one time or another experienced the ebb and flow in our passion for trains and railways, whether it be an allegiance to steam or a penchant for more modern diesel and electric traction…in essence, the appeal of trains frequently comes and goes, but it never leaves us entirely. Terry’s fascination with trains began in the West Riding of Yorkshire during the s when the majority of small boys shared a passion for train spotting.
It started off as a relatively simple hobby at first, little morethan jotting down a few engine numbers at his local station at Saltaire near Shipley until it dawned on him that spotting the same old engines time and time again was a fruitless exercise and a wider search began in earnest. His parents were badgered for permission to travel further afield, but wisely no mention was made of the hairy escapades his trips involved, often pedalling mile upon mile on push bikes to faraway places and climbing over perimeter walls to gain access to engine sheds.
Alas, by the mid s our search for engine numbers took an ominous downturn and our spotting trips were returning fewer rewards than previous times, not least because collecting engine numbers was a speculative pursuit where success was measured by the sum total of ‘cops’ collected. Now you don’t have to be a mathematician to calculate the odds of adding more numbers to your collection when the rank and file of BR steam was being culled at an alarming rate.
This is where things began to get serious, for having exhausted the ‘cop’ rate in our local area, the only way of filling the gaps in our Ian Allan ABCs was by travelling further afield, and so marathon trips were planned to distant BR Regions to track down those stubborn ‘bs’ of engines we needed before they too ended up on the scrap heap.
However, in the world of railway photography the complete opposite often turns out to be the case. Looking at old photographs of BR steam days posted on the Internet, you have to keep reminding yourself that many were taken by thirteen and fourteen year-old schoolboys with little or no knowledge of railways or the locos they were photographing. And it’s fortunate also, that the old cameras did not discriminate between the age or life experience of the person whose finger pressed the button.
Thankfully the young learn very quickly. Once a picture had been taken of a loco with a lamp post growing out of its chimney, it was a mistake seldom repeated.
I am trying to locate information and if possible drawings of the two buses in the attached images. They are both of the Cream Bus Service Ltd. I believe one is a Carrier CY and the other a Ford. I actually make model airplanes but would like to make a couple of models in remembrance of my Grandfather — hence my reach out for this help.

Hazem El Masri case shows Australia has a problem with innocent until proven guilty
Who’s next to sign? I spoke to the agent about a couple of other players. He said what about Toddy, I asked if he had a release clause and he did. The deal suited both parties. Alongside Adam Mogg, Carney was the Raiders’ top try-scorer, and was also selected in the Junior Kangaroos squad that year, where he was appointed captain.
Monday 26th March National developer Metro has topped out the 14th and final tower in its current pipeline of Brisbane apartment projects, with chief executive Luke Hartman telling The Australian Financial Review the company remains confident in the market despite funding challenges.
Nobody can hide from the fact that several off-field misdemeanours have threatened to scupper a career which once saw the play-maker break onto the international scene and pick up the Dally M trophy, one of the most coveted awards in Australia. Like Tomkins, I can hardly defend the previous actions of Carney and there are plenty , but he has to be given a clean slate at the Robins whilst also reminding himself that KR have taken a huge risk in signing the pivot.
This, you feel, is last-chance saloon for the year-old. Tim Sheens obviously knows the chequered past of Carney, but was the one who recognised his talent in to hand him his Kangaroos bow. Alongside Adam Mogg, Carney was the Raiders’ top try-scorer, and was also selected in the Junior Kangaroos squad that year, where he was appointed captain. Early-to-mid Earning three Man of the Match displays earlier in the season, Carney courted controversy when involved in a high-speed police chase in a Canberra suburb despite being banned from driving.
The Court placed Carney on a month good behaviour order, banned him from driving until , and sentenced him to hours of community service, but the playmaker was kept on at the club. Mid-to-late Carney resumed his place in the Canberra line-up and again topped the try-scoring tally in However off-field behaviour continued to hamper Carney’s career and following the Round 19 clash against Sydney Roosters, he was suspended from training and playing whilst an investigation into an off-field matter concluded.
Carney was de-registered by the NRL and would not be able to feature again until the campaign. November After his suspension ended, Carney signed for the Sydney Roosters for the campaign. Switching to full-back as well as the halves, Carney went on to have a hugely-successful year at the Roosters. He also received the RLIF international player of the year award for
