Default Any engineering enthusiasts?

A few months ago we did some work in the old decommisioned cable car port at Fort regent. I took a few phone camera shots of this lovely old piece of engineering.Oh and Pris had to be there (virtually,anyway).

Today's technology is amazing but the older stuff is awe-inspiring in a way that modern tech isn't. Everything was built to do it's job and last way past it's expiry date.

Cheers for the pics and nice to see Pris checking things out, even if it was virtual.

Never ceases to amaze me, I know it's built to more than do the job, but if I was building it and riding it daily, it would be twice the size at least.
I have this same issue with building rooms, flats, sheds, ramps or framework.
My stuff is overkill I know, but I'm just not comfortable otherwise.

Pete.

really have to wonder how people from that era came up with some of the things they did. people now a days probably wouldn't have a clue how to do it. nice pictures pris looks great in her hat and work clothes.

Nice work Phil, your copy and paste is now near perfect.

The new tech is fine, but sometimes i regret old machines... Using new ones is sometimes forgetting to think when they use them... Some of my co worker makes incredible mistakes.

Default Old engineering

Engineering as we know today has evolved since man walked on two feet - it started with simple hand tools, then weapons, then big structures. The Industrial Revolution was another huge step where machines as we know today started to evolve. Those old engineered structures were based on sound design principles (that date back to as far as records, e.g. caveman drawings, began). These structures were built to last, and hence in many ways, over-engineered. Today, cost and supply of materials really come to the fore, and we follow codes and procedures to build structures which have finite life and service period. We don't (nor can afford to) build them today like how we used to.

Aint that the truth. Churches and castles that have stood for 100's of years with just general maintenance, and yes today we expect a building to have a life of less than 100 years that built with 'Modern Technology'

Still, Pris and old Iron Work cant go wrong there.

People used to have a "Can do" attitude, they just got on and did things without the rules and analysing we get now.
