The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising.

Withdrawn from Stockport Edgeley by BR in July 1966, the double chimney modification in 1961 was the last British-designed modification made to any BR steam locomotive aimed at improving performance.
Bought for £3, 000 by local enthusiasts in 1967 and hauled across the Pennines for overhaul at Leeds by the Hunslet Engine Co.
