Some of you may be unfamiliar with the workings of a Sewer Treatment facility. As something of an expert, I’ve labelled the below diagram to help you understand how they work.
- A. Big load of sewer.
- B. Primary clarifier tank. This makes the sewer stuff a bit cleaner, probably.
- C. Some pool between the primary and seconday clarifier tanks. Not sure what this does exactly, but it is very important.
- D. Secondary clarifier tank. Getting cleaner!
- E. All clean now! Another pool, after the seconday clarifer tank. It’s got big pipes going into it. Maybe the nice clean clarified sewage gets pumped out or something.
That’s the main bits.
- Platformy bit. You can stand on this and look at sewerage, if you like.
- Scum spinner. Spins scum.
- Big pipes. See 28 Sewer Worker 2, feat. Big Pipes
- Walkways. Handy for walking. You really don’t want to be swimming in this stuff.
- Drippy Big Pipes. Make a nice ploppy drip noise.
- Some Big Pipes go into walls. Probably take some sewer stuff somewhere else, or something.
And that’s how Sewer Treatment works.
Yesterday was a Bank Holiday in the UK. Today though we’re back underground with our old friend the Sewer Worker, but this time with some Big Pipes! Big Pipes, with rivets and everything.
Big Pipes. What’s in them? What are they for? Why are they so big?
It’s Friday, and nothing says Friday like a couple of pictures of an unfinshed underground train depot!
Where would we be without the humble shelf? If you need to keep a lot of smaller things together in one place, whether for organisational purposes or perhaps just to display a collection of personal trinkets, you cant go far wrong with a shelf, or some shelves.
Shelves. It’s hard to imagine a world without them.
No posts since Thursday because we had an Error Code 25 emergency, here in the control centre.
It took a few days to sort out*, but all fixed now.
Where would we be without the humble box? If you need to keep a lot of smaller things together in one place, whether for organisational purposes or perhaps for ease of transportation, you cant go far wrong with a box.
Boxes. It’s hard to imagine a world without them.
Let’s all take a little moment to reflect on the sterling work what is done by the Sewer Worker! It’s a dirty job, but someone has to do it.
On the plus side, they do get a nice lens flare.
Just got back from a night at The Red Lion. They’ve got darts, and the garden is nice, but things got a bit out of hand later on.
Trains. Trains are very British.
Not only did we invent trains and the tube/underground/metro, but we were of course the first to use cyborg trains (a standard train, but with a human face and brains and stuff, to replace the driver).
To this day the British Railway is the best in the world!
It’s Friday, and what could be more Friday-y than a picture of a generator!
Sorry! We’re really very, very, very sorry. But we really do have to do some very important roadworks.
Terribly, terribly sorry.
To take a break from pictures of new items, here are some older scenery models… Diggers!
Or Hydraulic Excavators, if you prefer.
If it’s got wiggly wires coming out of it, it can be only one thing!
From left to right: time bomb, egg bomb, proximity bomb (WIP) and sausage bomb.
I’m going to retreat to the shelter and not come out until Tuesday / I’m on holiday.
It’s a decoy. It makes a loud radio-distortion kind of noise. You could call it a noisemaker… though that’s a bit Alien Isolation.
Hmm… what to call a decoy that makes a noise?
Work in Progress.
The train to Slough! … it’s due any minute now!
… won’t be long …
… any minute now …
The future of portable Hi-Fi… the Omnisound RC-550 Boombox!
It’s amazing what you can knock up with some old metal pipes, a few nails, and bit of sticky tape. Here are some we made earlier.
