Clockwork orrery

Clockwork orrery, historical artwork. This is an 18th century mechanical clockwork model of the planetary motions in the solar system. The planets rotated around the Sun (upper centre); the Earth and Moon are just to the left of the Sun. Saturn (far left) shows its ring structure and some of its moons. Only the six planets nearest to the Sun are featured; Uranus, Neptune and Pluto (not seen) were discovered in 1781, 1846 and 1930 respectively. The orrery was a popular instrument of astronomical instruction during the 18th and 19th centuries

Arranging railway timetables, 1908 Featured Image

Arranging railway timetables, 1908

An ingenious system of threads used by railway timetable planners to secure the perfect working of a great railway system in 1909. This was achieved by stretching threads across a board. Each section of the board from top to bottom represents one hour, and hose spaces were subdivided by thinner lines representing five minutes. The horizontal divisions represented the distances between the stations. A thread was stretched from the starting-point of the train to its destination, and the points where the threads intersected the ruled lines showed the time of the arrival of the trains at stations. It was essential that no two threads should cross. Crossings are avoided by carrying the thread horizontally along the sections equivalent to five minutes, and each horizontal deviation means tat the train must stop for a time equal to the number of minute-spaces it covers on the board. Perhaps something to be considered by current rail company timetable compilers? Date: 1909
