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.

O&K Mallett 0-4-4-0

PAKIS BARU No.5 was built by Orenstein & Koppel of Berlin in 1905 for use at a sugar mill in Indonesia. It arrived at the private Statfold Barn Railway (SBR) in September 2004. Restoration at the on-ste workshops began in 2006 and was completed in 2007.

The Mallett design has a rigid main frame that supports the rear end of the boiler. At the front of the main frames are the high-pressure cylinders. A sub-frame, carrying a second set of driving wheels powered by low-pressure cylinders, is positioned ahead of and pivoted to the main frames. Exhaust steam from the high-pressure cylinders is carried to the low-pressure cylinders through flexible steam pipes, as is the exhaust steam from the low-pressure cylinders to the blast pipe in the smoke box. The overall result is therefore a compact but powerful locomotive able to negotiate relatively tight curves.
The image was taken at an SBR open day in September 2012. The SBR is located near Tamworth, Staffordshire, England.
