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.

5521 has now (December 2013) been fitted with a cut-down cab to enable it to work in the London Underground tunnels. It should have made its first run underground on December 8 2013.
