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.

British Rail class 86 electric locomotive

Picture of the 86213, a BR class 86 electric locomotive on display to public in its shed.
One hundred of these locs were built in 1965-66 for use on the West Coast Mainline and to help phase out the steam locomotives that were still used in the UK. This one, the 86213 in Intercity Swallow livery is named 'Lancashire Witch', has been preserved and is in operational condition.
