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.

Class 56XX 0-6-2T 6697 is in the atmospheric shed at the Didcot Railway Centre.
She was built in 1928 by Armstrong Whitworth for the GWR.
She has been cosmetically restored for display and needs a heavy overhaul before she can steam again.
