The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising.

The former D2985 0-6-0 dock shunter, built by Ruston & Hornsby in 1962 (at the time my late father was an inspector in the factory). They mainly worked at Southampton, but did not last long. This one went to Staveley Limeworks at Buxton in 1976.

By December 2013 this locomotive had been repainted into BR Blue by the Heritage Shunters Trust at Peak Rail, Rowsey South.
