Newcastle Hydraulic Bridge

Newcastle Hydraulic Bridge: (Should That Be Spelt Hydrolic, Because It’s Water)

Michael Portillo’s Great British Train Journeys – Newcastle to Lindisfarne. BBC.

On the river Tyne a swing open bridge was operated by a simple vertical cylinder which filled with water and lifted a sixty five ton weight. They opened a valve at the bottom and the downward pressure drove the ‘Engine’. What more would you need to drive an electric generating turbine, but a row of those.

More power from one big turbine than a thousand wind turbines. I didn’t know, when I wrote about it before, that it already existed. Invented by a Newcastle Geordie.


About Gdicm

Gordon Davidson, I Care Music. (Gdicm) At present I am disabled. I have met Christ, and Saint Peter, and others and have been given a job to do by them. Party political democracy will never be a success for decent people anywhere. It empowers criminals, whose votes politicians need, and gives those criminals powers they should never have. It has brought transgressors to the forefront of every society. It could do nothing else if their votes are needed. Law and order is Bible preached self discipline, which no longer exists in the average person. For example: Would Gays or Lesbians be legal if politicians did not require their votes? No. Would it harm them to not be Gay? No. Only a single compulsory Christian Church can bring about fair equality. Let me build a proper religion, starting around Elgin Cathedral, Morayshire Scotland. Let democracy be done by the Church using God's laws as the guide. Gdicm music is on various streaming services.
