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.

SMILE PLEASE

If I remember rightly I think this is driver Duncan Blair of Newton Heath shed. He is posing for my friend Hughie McLelland at Manchester Victoria before taking Stanier Class 5 4-6-0 No.45101 to Blackpool in Jan 1965. The brazier to keep the water from freezing tells you how cold it was!
