The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch.

Class 73 electro-diesel 73119 at the Eastleigh Works Centenary Celebrations.
73's have two separate engines, electric, working of a third rail system, and a less powerful diesel unit.
The lack of power of the diesel meant that they rarely stayed from Southern lines.
2 of the survivors have been converted to haul a Eurostar unit.
73119 is at Eastleigh being prepared for mainline work.
