Extract from Chapter V;-
72. The gyroscope has been employed by Mr. Louis Brennan with striking ingenuity and success, to ensure the stability of a heavy car travelling on a single line of rail, with its centre of gravity above the level of the rail, as is seen in the accompanying illustrations....

A full description of the mechanism, with a mathematical discussion on the subject, is given by Mr. H. Cousins in the issue of Engineering for Nov. 21st, 1913, and following numbers.

Big Bertha Thing francis

To my brother-in-law Francis (RIP), who I once called "as daft as a brush." To his everlasting credit, he replied "I know."
The greatest compliment, my wife ever paid me, was to say, that I did not hold a grudge. Net surfers do not hold grudges, but they are a bit short on victim support, whichever side the victim comes from.
