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.

Looking a little better than in the 2 previous photos but still short of a few bits!!
Interesting that she is carrying a "Class 40 Preservation Society" headboard but there is no mention of her on the website that I can find.
Will they use her for demo, cabbing, purposes or perhaps to replace a cab on one of their other locos not in as good condition?

I particularly like the headboard similar to the attractive nameplates the Class 40s carried. A batch were named after Cunard, Elder Dempster and Canadian Pacific liners as they would possibly find themselves on boat trains to Liverpool Riverside.
The plates featured the ship's name, owning company and painted houseflag.
Incidentally, all the Riverside boat trains I ever saw were Britannia Pacifics........
