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.

LAST SUMMER

It is August 1984 and BR EMU Class 506 1500 volts DC M59602/502/402 passes the closed Daniel Adamson factory at Dukinfield on its way to Glossop and Hadfield. The 506 units were taken out of service on Dec 7th.

This is rather a historic photograph, since the only surviving portion of Class 506 is a severed driving end of a motor open brake second, M59404, which is preserved at the Barrow Hill Roundhouse.
