Had an opportunity to go up to the top of Three Chamberlain Square thanks to an invite by Paradise Birmingham. So here is views to Victoria Square, Colmore Row and Waterloo Street with the on-going Public Realm Works. Colmore Row looks complete, but new bollards covered over. Waterloo Street is half done.

Victoria Square - Public Realm Works - June 2024 update





Had an opportunity to go up to the top of Three Chamberlain Square thanks to an invite by Paradise Birmingham. So here is views to Victoria Square, Colmore Row and Waterloo Street with the on-going Public Realm Works. Colmore Row looks complete, but new bollards covered over. Waterloo Street is half done.


Thank you to Paradise Birmingham for the invite on the 10th June 2024.

General views of Victoria Square over Birmingham Town Hall from the top of Three Chamberlain Square, including the Floozie in the Jacuzzi (River and Youth), the fountains and pools still flowing. Also scaffolding is up Waterloo House near Nandos.

Colmore Row as far as Newhall Street and Bennetts Hill has been completely relaid, with new bollards. The cones were still out at the time. I wonder if after this bit is done, if they will need to complete the rest between Victoria Square and Colmore Square past Cathedral Square (where the buses stop).

Waterloo Street is partially repaved, there is a lot left to do here near Adams and the Lost & Found. This also goes as far as Bennetts Hill.

dndimg alt="Waterloo Street" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Waterloo%20St%203CS%2010062024.JPG" style="width: 100%;" />

 

New Street from Victoria Square to Rotunda Square is in urgent need of repaving. It was pedestrianised in the 1990s, and the bricks keep getting dug up and relaid. Plus some of the Metro paving near Corporation Street (dating to 2015-16) is all cracked and broken, and also needs fixing. This is all due to cars, vans and lorries driving up and down (deliveries, police etc).

Visit to the National Motorcycle Museum

On the Spring Bank Holiday Monday morning, had a visit to the National Motorcycle Museum in Bickenhill, Solihull. Closed to Birmingham Airport and The NEC. M42, Junction 6 and A45 Coventry Road at the Bickenhill Interchange. Five halls with British built motorcycles, from the early 20th century until at least the 1970s, with some from recent decades. A quiet place to visit.

Did you know that the British Motor Museum in Gaydon, Warwickshire is home to a DeLorean from Back to the Future Part II (1989), the FAB 1 from the Thunderbirds movie (2004), even a City Cab from Judge Dredd (1995). Plus a few motors from Only Fools and Horses. Even Jaguar's from Fast & Furious 9, Die Another Day and an Austin Powers inspired Jag!

Did you know that the British Motor Museum in Gaydon, Warwickshire is home to a DeLorean from Back to the Future Part II (1989), the FAB 1 from the Thunderbirds movie (2004), even a City Cab from Judge Dredd (1995). Plus a few motors from Only Fools and Horses. Even Jaguar's from Fast & Furious 9, Die Another Day and an Austin Powers inspired Jag!


From the visit to the Brisith Motor Museum on Sunday 5th May 2024.

 

ONLY FOOLS AND HORSES (1981 - 1991, specials from 1996 - 2003)

1972 Reliant Regal Supervan 3

As driven by Derek 'Del Boy' Trotter (David Jason) in the earlier series and episodes of Only Fools and Horses, with his brother Rodney Trotter (Nicholas Lyndhurst). It was used in the series from 1981. Under the Peckham Yellow paint, it appeared in Rowan Atkinson's Mr Bean in blue paint, before a new owner restored it to the Trotter's livery. It was then lent to the BBC to star in the 1996 Only Fools and Horses Christmas Special.

1980 Ford Capri Ghia Mk III

As driven by Derek 'Del Boy' Trotter (David Jason) in later episodes of Only Fools and Horses, with his brother Rodney Trotter (Nicholas Lyndhurst). Derek initially used the tatty yellow three-wheeled Reliant Regal Supervan, but in some later episodes he traded it for a rather lurid liem green Ford Capri, his brother Rodney called it the "Pratmobile". This is the Mark III used in later programmes, but they used the Mark II is some earlier episodes.

BACK TO THE FUTURE TRILOGY (1985 - 1990)

1981 DeLorean DMC-12 from Back to the Future Part II (1989)

This DeLorean time machine has the OUTATIME licence plate at the rear, plus the barcode licence plate from the movie. It probably came from Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida, and probably relocated to the British Motor Museum after Back to the Future the Ride closed down. Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) first showed up with the hover converted DeLorean at the end of Back to the Future (1985) to take Marty McFly (Michael J Fox) and Jennifer Parker (Claudia Wells, Part I and Elisabeth Shue, Part II and Part III) to 2015. As later seen in Back to the Future Part II (1989).

JUDGE DREDD (1995)

1995 Land Rover City Cab

A special Land Rover designed for the 1995 Judge Dredd starring Sylvester Stallone as Judge Dredd. Based on the British science fiction comic anthology, 2000AD. Set in the third millennium. Hidden underneath the fibre-glass body was the chassis of a 1970's Land Rover 101 inch military vehicle.

dndimg alt="Judge Dredd" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Judge%20Dredd%20BMM%2005052024.JPG" style="width: 100%;" />

 

Seen from above with the Judge Dredd Land Rover City Cab was a Concept Land Rover. To me it looked like a Land Rover Defender as used in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001) that starred Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft, but perhaps not. Was also an 'ancient' looking stone tablet with it.

THUNDERBIRDS (2004)

2004 FAB 1 Thunderbirds movie Limousine

The Ford Thunderbird FAB 1 was from the live action adaption of Gerry Anderson's Thunderbirds, as directed by Star Trek's Jonathan Frakes. The car driven by Parker (Ron Cook) to chauffeur Lady Penelope (Sophia Myles) in the back. Created by Ford of Europe's design team. It also flew in the movie.

JAMES BOND 007 (1962 - 2021)

1998 Jaguar XKR 'James Bond' car from Die Another Day (2002)

This was the villain's car used in the film Die Another Day, the fourth and final movie to star Pierce Brosnan as James Bond (the 20th movie out of 25 official movies made to date). It was the car of Zao played by Rick Yune. It was equipped with a Gatling gun mounted centrally behind the seats with further armaments including missiles that fired through the front grille, rocket launchers in the doors and mortar bombs in the boot. Was filmed on location in Iceland in early 2002. The yellow BAD 1 licence plate was at the front, while the white one on the passenger seat. And also had Icelandic number plates.

AUSTIN POWERS TRILOGY (1997 - 2002)

2001 Jaguar XK8 - Union Jack Livery. Replica of Austin Powers car from Goldmember (2002)

This car was used by Jaguar as a press car, originally in blue. Later re-painted in the Union Jack colour scheme of the car used in the Austin Powers film "Goldmember", before being handed over to the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust. The first Austin Powers film was the International Man of Mystery in 1997, was a comedy spoof of classic spy thrillers. The second film the Spy Who Shagged Me in 1999 used a Jaguar E-type, while the third film Goldmember in 2002 used a Jaguar XK8 convertible.

SHAUN THE SHEEP (2007 - 2016, 2020 TO PRESENT)

2007 Land Rover Shaun the Sheep

Shaun the Sheep first appeared in the Wallace & Gromit short film A Close Shave in 1995. He later got his own TV series from Aardman Animations from 2007 onwards. The Farmer in the series drove a battered old Land Rover. This is a full size version, based on a 60 year old Land Rover Series I, to recreate the unique look of the Farmer's car.
