  • (Winter tire) A tire with a deep tread suitable for winter conditions
  • This type of tire is suitable for snow and ice covered roads. The tread pattern features a heavily siped, fine-block design with grooves that are deep and wide, providing excellent driving traction and braking performance on winter road surfaces.
  • A tire (in American English) or tyre (in British English) is a ring-shaped covering that fits around a wheel rim to protect it and enable better vehicle performance by providing a flexible cushion that absorbs shock while keeping the wheel in close contact with the ground.

1178
1178
1178 was built at Motala in Sweden in 1914. Upon retirement in 1959, instead of scrapping, it was put into the Swedish strategic reserve. The reserve was in case of an invasion - these steam engines would have been quickly put to work, to keep trains running without power or diesel. In the early 70's Sweden began scrapping its reserve loco's and in 1975 the loco was purchased by Mr Richard Hurlock and brought to Wansford. In common with nearly all the continental Loco's it was essentially in operational condition, although painted in a rather drab matt black paint. In June 1977 it worked the NVR's opening train, with the French Nord loco, 3.628. It was subsequently re-painted in Black, with blue boiler, all lined in red, with white tyres and the Yellow 'SJ' (standing for 'Statens Jarnvagar' which I believe means Swedish State Railways). Very nice it looked too. Being an ideal size for the line, economical, and easy to operate, the loco was often used more than any other. By circa 1985 it was stopped with leaking boiler tubes. Due to a motive power crisis, it was returned to traffic in 1989, after a very light overhaul using flue tubes from 92 Squadron and new smoke tubes. By circa 1992 the engine was in poor condition and was withdrawn. It has not run since. The loco Swedish engineering has an excellent reputation, and 1178 is no exception. It is easy to work: for the fireman it is economical, and steams very well; and for the driver it is easy to control, it has a regulator linkage that allows the driver to keep a hand on the regulator whilst he (or she) looks out of the window, and piston valves with a screw reverser, making it easy to notch up whilst on the move. There are sprung seats and the cab is large and comfortable, lined in wood for working in a North Swedish winter, providing ample warmth for working Santa Specials! If it was built to the British loading gauge, it would be an ideal engine for most preserved lines (probably equivalent to a class 3MT but to Berne gauge), able to haul any train economically. The scrapping of all the BR 3MT tanks is a great loss; they would have been perfect for most preserved lines. We are fortunate to have a Swedish equivalent. It made an interesting comparison with former stablemate 1928; a similar 2-6-4T and Sweden's penultimate steam loco, built in 1953. Although the 1914 engine is an early design, the 1953 design was very similar, showing that almost 40 years of development could make no improvement. In fact, the 1953 loco was less favoured by NVR crews as it was more prone to slipping; to quote The NVR's CME, Alan Whenman, '1178 would knock spots of 1928 for haulage'. It is also interesting to compare with British Loco's. Most of the pipework is hidden, keeping the clean lines as found with British engines. There is also plenty of brass to polish, with proud brass numbers on each side of the chimney, brass window rims, and large cast brass works plates. A Great Western prairie from this era of design is a machine for a similar job, but not as easy to operate: the Prairie has a small, cramped cab; the reversing lever is very heavy (due to the slide valves); you cannot see out of the cab side and reach the regulator at the same time; the shovel plate is very low and can give back ache; there is no drop grate to drop the fire quickly; and above all - no seats! Sorry all you British enthusiasts, the GW prairie is the Ford, 1178 is the Rolls Royce (or perhaps a SAAB). After returning to working order, in it's new lease of life it will become 100, yes 100 years old!

I got tired of the darkness of Swedish winters. Today finally sun appeared after long time, but I got disappointed when the sun disappeared and set when it came to "my" angle of photoshooting, too dark to shot anything below 800 iso or somtheing like that. I know I can photograph artificial light since I have light boxes in ceiling to make me able to look at anything when crafting. But I always hated how it just makes the doll's hair good but not their faces, still dark. I started to think of studio lights? Light box? *thinking thinking* then I started to think of reflecting light. But how? Paper would not be enough. Mirror will just make it almost as ugly as direct light with big shadows. That matte reflecting surface.. *think think* materials.. what to use... Then hey! aluminium foil! it has 2 sides! One is matte! I glued it onto 2 pieces of cardboard. Seem to be a great solution and great addition to my little homemade doll studio! Now I do not need daylight anymore! I think! haha! EDIT: Not roof! ceiling! it is same word in Swedish, but very very funny if you use wrongly in English. :)
