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.

3440 City of Truro

Outside the shed at Didcot, home of the Great Western Society, are City class 3440 City of Truro and Castle class 5051 Earl Bathurst.
The railway world is still debating whether or not 3440 was the first to clock 100mph.
