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.

DR98500, Track and Service Car

Photographed in the yard of the Nene Valley Railway at Wansford, on 15 March 2011.
Built in 1985 by Plasser & Theurer, this was the first of a short series of on-track-machines for carrying out minor works, being ideally suited to some of Scotland's more remote worksites (it came to the NVR from Perth, domnated by Amey). The vehicle has two axles, being 10.0m over headstocks, equipped with a driving cab and mess facilities at one end, and a side tipping truck with 5 tonne Atlas hydraulic arm at the other. The hydraulic arm can also work to an attached flat wagon.
