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.

Regarding the nameplate, apparently during its service with BR this locomotive ran on various occassions with either black or red nameplate backgrounds. In April 2009, while it was being prepared for main line runs, those involved could not agree on whether to use those with black or red backgrounds, so in the end they decided to have one of each! Of course both cannot be seen at the same time. It would be interesting to know whether "odd" nameplates are still being carried. Do any visitors to this site know?
