Welcome to my talk page. You can leave me a message here and I will reply as soon as possible.


I note that you have removed the summary and license information from this picture after uploading it. Is there a reason for this? It is conventional to leave this information, especially the license so that other users know whether or not they can use the image on other sites --Peter Harrison (talk) 22:08, 13 January 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sorry, I've been having issues with Internet Explorer, it deleted part of it and crashed. If you could revert it, I would be grateful. RedDragon 16:45, 14 January 2015 (UTC)

Have a nice day[edit]

Since you ask, in Welsh you can't actually say "Have a nice day" as such as there is no imperative/command form of the verb 'to have' (cael). Google Translate has done it literally (i.e. "to have a nice day") but what we say is "Mwynhewch eich diwrnod" (literally "Enjoy your day"). Tony E. (talk) 14:12, 26 April 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Image Issues[edit]

Hi - your latest two pictures need turning by 90 degrees. Marquis DeCarabas (talk) 11:35, 31 May 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sorry, just noticed. Will change ASAP. RedDragon (talk) 13:34, 31 May 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Page Carriage 150[edit]

It seems that you & I were trying to edit the 150 page at the same time with the result that my pictures got your captions. I would suggest that you upload your photos again with different names and the change the names between the gallery markers. I take it you were the person who was there most of the day but never spoke to anyone. I was the one handing out leaflets. Heritagejim (talk) 19:36, 7 June 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

My pictures are largely the same as yours, so I won't bother uploading them. RedDragon (talk) 15:39, 8 June 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]


I feel a bit sore about being accused of sexism. This is doubtless because I said Hugh Napier is a suitable engine for ladies to drive. So he is - many ladies have not the physical strength to drive the larger locomotives; that is a straight statement of fact, not sexism. My wife Sue has driven Lilla and Hugh Napier, or Britomart when invited, but balks at the larger ones. Sue insisted on inspecting the FR before marrying me, many years ago; she has been a regular attender at the FR ever since and she is member No.160. I am not prepared to discuss my professional life, but it had much to do with ladies. Pedr Pnjarvis (talk) 17:26, 14 September 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Point accepted. However, it is not very preferable to include such a comment. Some could interpret it in the wrong way. RedDragon (Say hi!) 15:51, 15 September 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

2016 carriage Spares[edit]

I've seen plenty of photos videos from last week with the the spares on the other set to which you list. The way it normally works is the spares are used on the same service everyday but the main sets can swap around as depending on the particular service pattern the last one to arrive back isn't always the first one that left. Eheaps (talk) 10:23, 5 June 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Many thanks for all your photo additions recently, particularly the WHR signals. Eheaps (talk) 18:41, 13 August 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

No worries, I happened to be up in the TLC and saw your new page and thought it would be good to illustrate it. RedDragon (Send me a telegram) 11:08, 14 August 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

2047 image[edit]

Hello RedDragon

We would like to use your image of Carriage 2047 on the WHR Society's website to publicise the 2019 appeal for funds to build the next carriage in the series. Could we have your permission to use the image in this way?

Many thanks

Dafyddyfelin (talk) 15:29, 29 December 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Good evening,
I would be more than happy for the WHR society to use this photograph both for this appeal and any other use the society may find for it (electronically and in print). I would ask that you credit it to Tristan S. K. Lockheart. Regards, RedDragon (Send me a telegram)

Ways to improve Carriage 2048[edit]

Hello, RedDragon,

Thanks for creating Carriage 2048! I edit here too, under the username Eheaps and it's nice to meet you :-)

I wanted to let you know that I have tagged the page as having some issues to fix, as a part of our page curation process and note that:-

I assume this was in the latest Snowdon Ranger, if so perhaps the details could be added as a reference.

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, leave a comment here and prepend it with {{Re|Eheaps}}. And, don't forget to sign your reply with ~~~~ .

Delivered via the Page Curation tool, on behalf of the reviewer.

Betws Garmon[edit]

Just a note to say thank you for the welcome following my amendment of the Betws Garmon Station page to reflect the recent conservation work by a contractor paid for by the WHR Heritage Group. There will be a turf capping to the walls. The project will feature in an article for the next WHRHG Journal. See photos on Flickr on my Boxbrownie3 account tagged as Betws Garmon We now have the BG Parcels Book which covers the period from September 1913 to September 1923 to be the subject of a separate article including we hope extracts from the report done in 1995 on the archaeology of the site for Welsh Water.--MrTimmy (talk) 16:22, 11 January 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Carriages 2048 and 2050[edit]

Hi, would it be possible to add suitable references to the pages for these carriages stating where the announcement of their construction was made. I assume it was the latest Snowdon Ranger, if so a suitable template exists. Ed - Eheaps (talk) 17:00, 13 May 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sorry for the omission Ed; I've just taught myself how to add references using wikitext and hopefully I won't forget in future! RedDragon (Send me a telegram) 17:20, 13 May 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]


I have deleted Ben so you can now complete the move. --Peter Harrison (talk) 19:04, 19 May 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Image copyright tag[edit]

The CC BY-NC-ND 2.0 license is not allowed on Wikipedia, apparently due to the ban on commercial use and the no derivatives clause. We allow more restrictive licenses than Wikipedia so could include this one if you think it would be useful. Do you want me to add it? Also, why 2.0 rather than the latest (4.0)? --Peter Harrison (talk) 13:24, 2 June 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It's because the images I've been adding from Flickr are under that licence. There are quite a few useful images on there which could be put to use on FP which are under the CC BY-NC-ND 2.0 tag.

Portmadoc Maritime[edit]

I have sent a Facebook DM to Robert Cadwalader to ask if he is happy to help us update the external links. MarkTemple (talk) 19:53, 7 March 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The answer was yes. MarkTemple (talk) 13:03, 8 March 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]



Are you an admin? If so, could you please delete the files Carriage37_2019_1 and Carriage106_2019_1 that I just uploaded. I forgot to add the license info and could not find a way of editing it. If the file is deleted, I can upload a new version of the file with licensing. Thanks!

P.S. The pictures (plus ones I'm about to upload) are mine this time! Davidlloydgeorge (talk) 20:54, 29 March 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi, I'm not an admin; they are Peter Harrison, Jim Hewett and Adrian Gray. However, it is possible to add the licence info after upload if you know the template for them. I've inserted {{PD-self}} onto the pictures of 106 and 37, as this is the one you subsequently used. For your future reference, you can add the following wikitext to add the licence after upload:

Hope this helps.
