Early diesel railcars[edit]

Hi Ulamm, thanks for adding the early Saxon diesel railcars (de.wiki).

These are interesting. Those are a very early example of a diesel engine that was light enough for mobile use. At this time, most diesels were large, heavy single-cylinder designs. These are four cylinder and appear more like the high-speed diesel engines that became common from around 1930. At this time a petrol (gasoline) engine would have been much more likely (There were several petrol railcars in service worldwide by this time). Do you have any more details on them? Particularly their fuel type and their engine speed, maybe even the type of fuel injection pump, would be very interesting, as this indicates where on the history between slow-speed diesels and high-speed diesels they fitted in. Sulzer were an important maker for diesel development in these decades.

I've also taken the liberty of changing them from multiple units to railcars. I think this is probably a language issue but I don't see any indication that they were usable in multiples. Andy Dingley (talk) 13:55, 31 December 2012 (UTC)

Hi Andy, I've just added some more vehicles.
My impression is, in early 19th century, the main problem with internal combustion motors was, how to use them for heavy vehicles.
Furthermore, in Europe petrol was expensive. With the initiative of Hungarian Lajos Láng for the construction of railmotors, Ganz Works' steam railcars (old fashioned solution) had lower costs per kilometer than the Weitzer railmotors.
The Saxon railmotors really ran on diesel. See the German WP-article linked. Imagine, just after the standstill of World War I, the first two diesel-electric loocmotives for the soviet Railways were built.
But I think, the most interesting European internal combustion rolling stock built between 1900 and World War I one were the petrol-electric Weitzer railmotors. Perhaps you have an idea how to mention them in survey articles?!.
Siemens-Schuckert company, that produced the electrical equipment, was also involved in the construction of Saxon DET 1 and 2.--Ulamm (talk) 14:37, 31 December 2012 (UTC)+Ulamm (talk) 15:03, 31 December 2012 (UTC)

ACsEV[edit]

Oh Ulamm, what have I gotten myself into? The fact is, I don't know too much about railway history, and a few quick searches were not very helpful, but I will do more work on grammar and such when I have time. To be quite honest, I have no clue how to answer your questions, but let me tell you whom you might contact for help.

  • The Arad County Library, through the text box at the bottom of the page. I've never dealt with them, and I know some libraries in Romania are less friendly than others, but it may be worth asking them.
  • Blogger romrail (romrail at clicknet dot ro). No idea who he is, but he's written about trains in Transylvania, so he might know something.
  • Marius George Oprea, author of this doctorate. His e-mail seems to be here - marius dot oprea at geografie dot ubbcluj dot ro.

I know this isn't too useful, but it may be a start. Happy New Year to you too, and keep up the good work. - Biruitorul Talk 23:00, 1 January 2013 (UTC)

Re-writing Steam engine[edit]

I see you are watching this page, and added some info to a caption. I agree your edit was more informative and if the image had been in the steam engine#Steam locomotives section it would be more appropriate. What I am wrestling with here is to use 3 images- that span time- and geography to illustrate the 3 big uses. Effectively this section must be very general. I chose the Betzdorfer dampflok- because the angle showed the pistons and valve gear- it was the lastest I could reasonably find- and it was standing in a station near Bochum, the cradle of heavy industry. All this gives internal link potential when the article is refined.

steam engine#Steam locomotives need some expert attention. References are needing page numbers. Is any of the detail spurious and not on focus? Should anything be removed? There is nothing between the Rainhill trials and 1960. Can you write one tight paragraph to cover those 130 years- focusing on how the locomotive developed with the technology, and developed the technology. Anything too detailed can be put in Steam locomotive which is the linked main article.

I am just trying to rescue this article and keep it on focus an suscinct. Hope you have time to give a hand. --ClemRutter (talk) 22:17, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

O.k., in a general article about steam engines the explanation of the locomotive has to be shorter than in an article about railways. But the dating has to be correct. This special engine has been built in 1943, and Class 52 is called "the War Locomotive", in Germany.--Ulamm (talk) 22:37, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

Changes to Shu Roads[edit]

Dear Ulamm, thank you for discussion on my style changes to Shu Roads. I agree the sentence starting with In time was still clumsy. See what you think of the change now. I think it is better and also there are still too many short paragraphs so merging this with the previous is better as well. I will be discussing the more serious (though still minor) changes later on my page. Cheers

Hall church[edit]

Thanks for your edit of Hall church. I see that you have made nice cross-sectional drawings of various church designs, including the Aisleless church (Saalkirche). In Norway the most common type of church is the simple "long church", basically a single nave "Saalkirche" with a sloping or horizontal ceiling, often with plain wooden walls. Some are with a barrel-vault ceiling. Do you think it is fair to translate the Norwegian "long church" ("langkirke") to "aisleless church"? Can you please draw another cross section for this simplest type of design (plain sloping/horizontal ceiling and without pilasters)? Thanks. --Erik den yngre (talk) 16:47, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

In Dutch, German, Polish and (not yet in WP but in other texts) in Czech, there is the term Zaalkerk/Saalkirche/… for churches without columns, literally that would be salkirke, I think, which does not imply that the interior is long and narrow, nor does exclude a long narrow shape (not in German, but perhaps in Norwegian (?) :). That term makes problems of translation to languages that do not distinguish hall and sal.
Another term is NL eenbeukige ~ or eenschepige kerk = DE einschiffige Kirche, but that term is rather used, if the undivided interior is vaulted.
I've drawn the hall church with and without vaults. So I do not object to draw a church without coloumns & without vaults, too.
But I shall draw only one more type (Of course, a church without columns may have a horizontal ceiling or an open roof, but I doubt if there is a use for a scheme of any single variation.)
Yours', Ulamm (talk) 19:20, 22 April 2015 (UTC)
Now the missing scheme is there.--Ulamm (talk) 21:13, 22 April 2015 (UTC)
Excellent, thanks. This is very useful. Unlike continental Europe, most Norwegian churches are wood constructions, roofs (at least in the typical modest church) are usually rafter or timber roof truss constructions.
About the term "long church". In Norwegian this term is partly in a broad sense about churches with an elongated shape and the choir (chancel) in a separate, slightly smaller section in the eastern end, this includes basilica design and elongated octagonal designs. In a more narrow sense the term is used for the prototypical modest Norwegian church with a single rectangular nave, Sunnylven Church for instance. --Erik den yngre (talk) 11:08, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
Further note: Seems like Dutch use "ship" (schiff)=nave like in Norwegian. In Norwegian we use "ship" (skip) for the main room of the church. In Norwegian, the term "central church" is used in contrast to "long church". A central church has a more symmetrical layout around a vertical focal point through the highest point of the roof, typical for some cruciform, round and octagonal churches.--Erik den yngre (talk) 18:14, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
Borgund stavkyrkje, longitudinal, though the nave is not long
The term "central structure" (DE Zentralbau) is quite established, but I think, a church in the shape of a Latin cross normally is not called a central building.
In your own article nn:Sentralkyrkje, you are using that graphical comparison of four central structures and the Latin cross as their longitudinal couterpart.
See also in Store Norske Leksikon :)
There are quite a lot of variations:
Winchester Cathedral, with its 170.1 m is one of the longest curches of the world, if not the longest at all. Nevertheless it has a huge transept, and a crossing tower.
Some Westphalian hall churches are famous for their almost sqare ground-plan, but they are not called central structures, as they have no central tower nor trasept.

Please provide further information[edit]

Herr Dr Ulamm:

You uploaded a file some years ago, File:Oberschlesien 1921.png. It appears in the plebiscite map in such English articles as [1].

For that file, the type and amount of information provided is typical (usual), as compared to most other WIkimedia files.

However, as with most Wikipedia images, it is not truly sufficient to trace the content in a scholarly way, and therefore makes the material WP:OR if a source is not provided. That is, it is not possible from the file annotation, to tell unequivocally what source provided the information needed to present the graphic—in this case, which earlier atlas or other text that you used to generate this visual information.

For this reason, the content of the article where the image appears is not fully verifiable, per WP:Verify. Also, there is no way to answer simple technical questions—for instance, what the various shortened names (odd abbreviations) mean, that appear on the map.

My question to you:

Was this map re-drawn from Westermann's Monatshefte [Westermanns Monatshefte 1960 / 101. Jahrgang / Hefte 1 - 12 Verlag: Westermann, Braunschweig, 1960]? If not Westermann, from what source's information did you create it?

(Please, provide the source for your work. If you can provide a link, that would be most excellent.)

The following description appears in the accompanying description, without an English translation: "Die Markierung der Teilungsgrenze(n) erfolgte anhand Westermanns Monatshefte-Atlas (ca. 1960, "aktuelle" Karte in der damals üblichen retro-Darstellung). Die Darstellung von Kreisen, die nur teilweise zum Abstimmungegebiet gehörten, erfolgte anhand in Berichten genannter Ortsnamen."

Could you provide an English translation—your preferred translation—for the above text, and add it to the image file at Wikimedia commons? (I could translate it, but feel that you should be allowed to translate it, since it is your work, originally. If you would like me to check the English, I would be glad to do so.)

With kind regard, and thanks for your contributions, I am
