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 47 47001 at what could be Crewe Heritage Centre.
As D 1521, the second built of the class, she had what was probably the first serious incident for the class. She ran off the slow road in 1964 near Sandy in Beds completely blocking the ECML. Badly damaged but repaired she was finally withdrawn in 1984. After spending several years almost being preserved she was broken up by C F Booth of Rotherham in 1994.
She carried the name City of Bristol unofficially from 1975 to 1981.
