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 73006 at the Eastleigh Works Centenary Celebrations.
73006 was built at Eastleigh by BR in 1962.
The 73's were predominately used on Southern lines using the third rail electric system, the diesel engine being less powerful than the electric motor.
She is normally to be found on the Severn Valley Railway.
