Update for October 2016

Apologies for the delay in updating the website, an 8,300 mile cross country road trip turned out to be quite an adventure, but now things should be returning to some form of normality.

Recent updates include:
The addition of the page for D5108 / 24108 marks the completion of a page dedicated to each Class 24/25. Much information has been provided by many readers over the years which has not yet been added to the website, it is hoped that this backlog of information can now be cleared!

Latest Updates during May & June 2015

Updates were somewhat delayed during the last two months due to the failure in service of the computer used to create the website. Its service life exceeded that of some of BR's Modernisation Plan diesels and eventually suffered from becoming more and more incompatible with modern technology (browsers etc). But the new computer is faster, more powerful and cheaper than its predecessor, but will it be as robust in the long run?

Recent updates with pictures added include:
Snowy days in the 1960s
Derby Works in the 1960s
Inverness & the Class 24s
The Class 26/27s, the early years



Latest Updates during March 2015

Recent updates include:

Locomotives:
7592 / 25242 more notes and a picture added.
7526 / 25176 a few more notes added.
