An all-new novel based upon the explosive Star Trek TV series! A shattered ship, a divided crew-trapped in the infernal nightmare of conflict! Hearing of the outbreak of hostilities between the United Federation of Planets and the Klingon Empire, Captain Christopher Pike attempts to bring the USS Enterprise home to join in the fight. But in the hellish nebula known as the Pergamum, the stalwart commander instead finds an epic battle of his own, pitting ancient enemies against one another-with not just the Enterprise, but her crew as the spoils of war. Lost and out of contact with Earth for an entire year, Pike and his trusted first officer, Number One, struggle to find and reunite the ship's crew-all while Science Officer Spock confronts a mystery that puts even his exceptional skills to the test...with more than their own survival possibly riding on the outcome...

It is now some forty years since the term 'Second Generation EMU' entered rail industry parlance. The British Rail (BR) Class 313 heralded a new era back in 1976/77 with BR's first order of suburban passenger trains with both a pantograph (for 25Kv AC) and shoegear (for 750V DC 'third rail'). These units continue to see daily service both on north of London commuter services and on Sussex's Coastway services. Since those early days, over forty classes of EMU have entered traffic throughout what is now, of course, a privatised railway. More and more operators are able to opt for their use over DMUs as more of the country benefits from installation of an electrified railway. This book offers a look at all the classes found in the UK, as well as a look at the country's electrified lines.

Trains on the Midland Main Line (Paperback): John Jackson Trains on the Midland Main Line (Paperback)

R364 R311 Discovery Miles 3 110 Save R53 (15%) Shipped within 20 - 25 working days

The Midland Main Line (MML) links London's St Pancras station to the East Midlands cities of Leicester, Derby and Nottingham. It then heads northwards through Chesterfield to Sheffield. Along the way, its southern section sees an extensive service of chiefly commuter services linking Bedford, Luton and St Albans both into the capital and south of it. Bedford also marks the northern end of existing electrification, although the route remains a candidate for this to be extended throughout. The iconic diesel High Speed Train fleet operates the longer distance services alongside the much newer Class 222 Meridians. With a wealth of previously unpublished photographs, John Jackson concentrates on the variety of traffic that can be seen along the MML. The branches to Corby and Matlock, which just survived the Beeching Axe, are also included. This book looks at both passenger and freight workings and the wide variety of activity on this important and busy line.

Harlem is one of the most famous neighborhoods in the world--a historic symbol of both black cultural achievement and of the rigid boundaries separating the rich from the poor. But as this book shows us, Harlem is far more culturally and economically diverse than its caricature suggests: through extensive fieldwork and interviews, John L. Jackson reveals a variety of social networks and class stratifications, and explores how African Americans interpret and perform different class identities in their everyday behavior.

DB Cargo Locomotives and Stock in the UK (Paperback): John Jackson DB Cargo Locomotives and Stock in the UK (Paperback)

R363 R310 Discovery Miles 3 100 Save R53 (15%) Shipped within 20 - 25 working days

DB Cargo emerged from the government's sell-off of the rail freight sector in the mid-1990s. It has gone through many changes of name and branding since those early post-privatisation days. Like other companies, it has suffered from the dramatic downturn in coal movement by rail and there are undoubtedly uncertain times ahead. It still claims, however, to be the UK's largest provider of rail freight services despite increasing competition from both road and other rail freight operators. Diesel and electric locos of classes 60, 66, 67, 90 and, occasionally, 92 all see regular service today. Twenty years on, John Jackson looks at both the large loco fleet at DB Cargo's disposal today and the variety of traffic it continues to handle. As well as being a major player in the rail freight sector, DB Cargo also provide locos for passenger duties such as Scottish sleeper services, charters and as hauliers for the Royal Family. The full range of DB Cargo locos is covered in this book.

Take a look at East Anglia's rail map and it's obvious that one line dominates. The Great Eastern Main Line (GEML) from Norwich to London's Liverpool Street runs broadly north to south through the region with Ipswich an important junction on its route through Suffolk and on to Essex and the capital. Passenger services on this 'core' London route remain in the control of Class 90 locomotives. So, East Anglia is one of the last bastions for UK loco-hauled passenger trains. Additionally, some London-bound stopping services starting at Ipswich are handled by electric multiple units (EMUs). Several lines survive around the coast serving towns such as Great Yarmouth, Lowestoft and Sheringham. Both Ipswich and Norwich are also served by lines that run inland to destinations such as Cambridge and Peterborough. These secondary lines are chiefly worked by diesel multiple units. An ongoing shortage has resulted in some services to Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft seeing regular usage of 'short sets' of coaching stock, hauled by the popular Class 37s and 68s. In the west of the region, EMUs are seen on the services operating between Ely and King's Lynn. The area's freight is centred on the UK's busiest container port, Felixstowe. This non-electrified branch often means a change of traction at Ipswich and is the main reason Freightliner has a major loco stabling point there. This important traffic is augmented by a handful of other freight services in the region. East Anglia is a region of rail contrasts and that fascinating mix of freight and passenger workings is shown in this profusely illustrated book.

Formed in 1999, GB Railfreight was one of several new rail freight operators to appear after the privatisation and break-up of British Rail in the 1990s. After winning a contract to operate infrastructure trains for Railtrack in 2000 the company enjoyed a long period of rapid growth to become one of the UK's principal rail freight companies, later expanding into passenger operations. Today, with a fleet of over 100 locomotives, the company operates a wide and varied range of services across the UK. This book aims to take a look at the operations and fleet of this successful rail business.

These Are the Days of Elijah - How God Uses Ordinary People to Do Extraordinary Things (Paperback): R.T. Kendall These Are the Days of Elijah - How God Uses Ordinary People to Do Extraordinary Things (Paperback)

Bestselling Author and Theologian Explores
the Life and Ministry of Elijah
Known for his in-depth yet accessible teaching, beloved author R. T. Kendall delves into the life of one of the most famous and most relatable persons in the Old Testament: Elijah.
Drawn from a popular sermon series Dr. Kendall preached at Westminster Chapel in London, this discussion taken from 1 and 2 Kings traces the prophet's life and ministry from his first appearance and his confrontation with King Ahab until the time he is taken up to heaven. Kendall shows how even this revered prophet--an ordinary man with many imperfections--was used tremendously by God. A great study for both individuals and groups.

R364 R311 Discovery Miles 3 110 Save R53 (15%) Shipped within 20 - 25 working days

It is now more than thirty years since two words synonymous with Diesel Multiple Units became part of railway parlance - 'Pacers' and 'Sprinters'. The Class 142 Pacers were introduced in the mid-1980s and, despite almost continuous criticism as to their lack of comfort, these 'nodding donkeys' remain in revenue-earning service. From these beginnings in the 1980s our rail network has seen a total of twenty or so classes of Second Generation DMUs enter service. Indeed, they are the mainstay of secondary passenger services on non-electrified lines right across the network. This book takes a closer look at these units in action with each class on display. From examples of ScotRail Class 158s and 170s on services out of Inverness to the Great Western Railway's Class 150s and 153s working services in Devon and Cornwall, this book is also a whistle-stop tour of non-electrified lines across the UK. These lines have survived into the twenty-first century and the second generation DMU has played an important part in this.

Dr Beeching's infamous 1963 report recommending cuts to a number of Britain's railways has long been etched into the consciousness of the British public, but a look at the rail map of Britain today reveals some survivors. These survivors avoided the chop for various reasons - and their future today is probably as secure as could ever have been hoped for. The original plans included the closure of lines that many today would find surprising - Leicester to Peterborough; Derbyshire's Hope Valley and Buxton lines; and the world-famous Settle to Carlisle line. Towns as contrasting as Ilkley and Skegness would have been removed from the rail map altogether. Lines such as Kettering to Corby, Nuneaton to Coventry and Nottinghamshire's Robin Hood line linking Nottingham to Mansfield and Worksop were closed and subsequently reopened. Indeed, at one time Mansfield had the dubious distinction of being the largest town in England with no rail connection. But not so today. This book takes a look at some of these survivors, from the Island Line on the Isle of Wight to the branches of Devon and Cornwall, the Far North line in the Scottish Highlands and many more in between.

How many times have we heard the phrase 'they don't make them like they used to'? Whatever the merits or otherwise of applying such a comment to UK railway locomotives, the fact remains that there are many longstanding survivors from our railway past. Of course, we all know of the role played by preserved railways in the UK; they have secured a place in history for heritage diesel and electric locos as well as many steam examples. But a number of ageing locomotive classes still remain on rail operators' books. Many are over half a century old. A quick tally suggests at least fourteen classes and, more importantly, between 100 and 200 individual examples remain on the network. They continue to attract more than their fair share of interest, particularly among the nostalgia enthusiast market. Yes, some are sidelined but many still see day-to-day service in the hands of mainstream operators. These locos are '50 not out', and the level of variety is perhaps surprising. This book celebrates some of those that have passed their half century and continue to work passenger or freight services.

In late 2007 Freightliner placed its order for twenty Class 70 locomotives. General Electric (GE) commenced building these locomotives at its plant in Pennsylvania, USA, culminating in the delivery of the first two locos in late 2009. Further deliveries followed in order to create an initial pool of twenty for Freightliner. One example of the class, No. 70012, was damaged during unloading at Newport Docks and did not enter traffic. The remaining members of Freightliner's pool operated freight traffic for both the Intermodal and Heavy Haul sectors. The 'Turkish Demonstrator' ultimately arrived in the UK as a 'replacement' for No. 70012 (carrying the temporary number 70099). Towards the end of 2013, another of the UK's freight operators, Colas, committed to using this class of locomotive. It took delivery of the Turkish Demonstrator and picked up the balance of Freightliner's original option of a total of thirty GE locomotives. Several Freightliner examples were placed into store at Midland Road towards the end of 2016 and their future roll remained uncertain. The Heavy Haul sector has been affected by the recent downturn in coal traffic. As we pass the tenth anniversary of placement of the original order, this book reflects the activity of both the Freightliner and Colas examples of the class in recent years.

Special Advocates in the Adversarial System (Hardcover): John Jackson Special Advocates in the Adversarial System (Hardcover)
John Jackson
R2,676 Discovery Miles 26 760 Shipped within 20 - 25 working days

The last twenty years have seen an unprecedented rise in the use of secret courts or 'closed material proceedings' largely brought about in response to the need to protect intelligence sources in the fight against terrorism. This has called into question the commitment of legal systems to long-cherished principles of adversarial justice and due process. Foremost among the measures designed to minimise the prejudice caused to parties who have been excluded from such proceedings has been the use of 'special advocates' who are given access to sensitive national security material and can make representations to the court on behalf of excluded parties. Special advocates are now deployed across a range of administrative, civil and criminal proceedings in many common law jurisdictions including the UK, Canada, New Zealand, Hong Kong and Australia. This book analyses the professional services special advocates offer across a range of different types of closed proceedings. Drawing on extensive interviews with special advocates and with lawyers and judges who have worked with them, the book examines the manner in which special advocates are appointed and supported, how their position differs from that of ordinary counsel within the adversarial system, and the challenges they face in the work that they do. Comparisons are made between different special advocate systems and with other models of security-cleared counsel, including that used in the United States, to consider what changes might be made to strengthen their adversarial role in closed proceedings. In making an assessment of the future of special advocacy, the book argues that there is a need to reconceptualise the unique role that special advocates play in the administration of justice.

When Klingon commander Kruge died in combat against James T. Kirk on the Genesis planet back in 2285, he left behind a powerful house in disarray-and a series of ticking time bombs: the Phantom Wing, a secret squadron of advanced Birds-of-Prey; a cabal of loyal officers intent on securing his heritage; and young Korgh, his thwarted would-be heir, willing to wait a Klingon lifetime to enact his vengeance. Now, one hundred years later, while on a diplomatic mission for the United Federation of Planets, Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the USS Enterprise are snared in the aged Korgh's trap-and thrust directly in the middle of an ancient conflict. But as Commander Worf soon learns, Korgh may be after far bigger game than anyone imagines, confronting the Federation-Klingon alliance with a crisis unlike any it has ever seen!

The latest figures reveal that just under 100 million passenger journeys are made annually from over 350 stations in Scotland, but services from these stations vary widely. The heavily populated belt linking Glasgow and Edinburgh enjoys frequent services. Remote outposts such as Oban, Mallaig and Kyle of Lochalsh, meanwhile, cling to limited services that connect them to the rest of the rail network. Historically, much of Scotland's rolling stock has been hand-me-downs from elsewhere in the UK. But that is changing. The newly electrified Edinburgh to Glasgow line will see new units. In addition, there is a planned cascade of HSTs to link Scotland's other major cities. Serco is planning new rolling stock for its sleeper services to the south and Virgin East Coast will also shortly introduce new trains. Author John Jackson has travelled extensively across Scotland and here takes a look at the diversity of stations served by a variety of rolling stock before these proposed changes become reality. It also includes a look at the remaining freight traffic on offer.
