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.

Can anyone say why there is a yellow lining over the nose end, cab side window and door, looking to continue to the engine roof edge? Is this adornment carried out 'all round'. In all honesty when I first looked I thought it was a strip of masking tape, then thought 'No, it can't be, that's a welded joint over the nose.'

Its a cant rail warning of live overhead wires, hope this helps Tony, Class 37's had this as well.

Thanks for that H&M. Things have altered since my days checking the Deltics out of Doncaster Plant Works up to 1987, there were no such adornments then.
