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.

Swedish electric freight locomotive photographed on 1 May 2009.
See also picture #3182 for details.
In the beginning of the 1970's SJ (Swedish Rail) ordered 10 Rc-locos with higher max speed, 160 kph (100 mph); the type designation became Rc3. Apart from the maximum speed they are the same as the Rc2-locomotives. During the 1990's 23 Rc2-locos were converted into Rc3-locos. Also some of the Rc3-locos have been converted to add radio control.
