Craft of the Inland Waterways by Anthony Burton Pdf
The book traces the history of the various craft that have been used for transport on Britain’s rivers and canals from the earliest times to the present day. The first section deals with the long history of the development of river craft, from prehistoric log boats to the whole range of sailing barges, such as the Humber keel and the Thames barge. By the middle of the 18th century, canal construction brought in a new generation of craft, not just the familiar narrow boats, but the wide boats such as the Leeds & Liverpool short boats, maintenance craft and even passenger boats. Steam power was introduced in the 19th century for a variety of crafts from tugs to pleasure steamers, while the 20th century brought in the diesel motors for boats and barges of all kinds. Today, there is still some commercial traffic, but an ever-increasing demand for boats for pleasure. Much of this story is told in terms of preserved craft and is also based on the author’s own experience aboard many of these craft, whether crewing a Thames barge or working in the engine room of a Clyde puffer.

Inland Waterway Transport by Massimiliano Grimaldi Pdf
This book analyses the European legal framework on inland water transport in light of the most recent legislation adopted and how the main Member States of Central Western Europe have implemented it. Specifically, the book provides an innovative tool of analytical and systematic study of the various legislative EU measures that regulate the inland waterways transport sector, as well as for the comparative study and analysis of the relevant measures of implementation adopted by the afore-mentioned Member States. Each EU legislative measure is first explained in general terms and then commented on in detail with a specific analysis of the most significant articles, following a precise logical sequence of the topics; the corresponding national implementing measures are also examined in detail* describing any different ways of transposing the EU regulation, also with regard to any differences in approach by the Member States relative to the possibility of any derogations or exemptions from compliance with some measures, which is often provided for by the EU regulation. This approach is significantly useful for (i) a more systematic and user-friendly understanding of the EU regulatory framework, (ii) an equally better understanding of how EU measures have been transposed into national legislation and (iii) a revision of this European and domestic legislation, where appropriate. Furthermore, the book is very useful for policy-makers of countries that are not members of the European Union (i.e. policy-makers from countries worldwide that have inland waterways), as they will have a reference tool to evaluate the possibility of reviewing their own regulation with a view to making it more similar to the EU one should the latter be better. While preparing the book, analyses of the preparatory work of the legislation played a great role, as they are very useful for better understanding the legislative initiatives and the reasons for the choices made. Analysis of the doctrine and jurisprudence also played a great part. This allows the reader to have a thorough understanding of the subject from a scientific point of view and from the point of view of practical application.
The Adlard Coles Book of EuroRegs for Inland Waterways by Marian Martin Pdf
In order to safely navigate Europe's major waterway routes, all boaters need to know CEVNI - the Waterway Code - whose rules, signs, symbols and signals are understood and used by bargemasters and working vessels of all nationalities. This book has been written especially for pleasure craft users, setting out the rules in an easy-to-follow handy pocket-book format. It covers waterway signs, signals, flags and lights, markings on vessels, procedures in tunnels, locks and weirs, overtaking rules, berthing, and explains buoyage and landmarks - and for this 3rd edition there is a handy Quick Reference section grouping signs by colour for easy identification. The book forms the basis of the RYA test for the International Certificate of Competence and is accepted by European countries as the obligatory rules book that must be carried on board all small craft.

This wide ranging and informative book, which is brimming with practical advice, is aimed at all those who wish to create authentic models of ports, canals, quays, wharfs and their associated railway infrastructure. Topics covered in this new book include the history of ports and inland waterways, and the important role played by the railways in facilitating their operation; layout plans and ideas, all based on prototypes, that are aimed specifically at the scratch builder; a selection of modelling projects are included with dioramas of both a canal wharf and two different estuary ports, supported by nearly 400 hundred step-by-step colour photographs, drawings and track plans. Finally, it covers the modelling and painting techniques that can be used to create realistic-looking water and how models can be made more convincing and brought to life by the addition of appropriate colouring and weathering. This practical guide is aimed at railway modellers of all abilities, and will also be of interest to modellers in general. Beautifully illustrated with 394 colour step-by-step photographs, drawings and track plans.
