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
58001 - a BR Class 58 diesel loc
Picture of the 58001, a British Rail Class 58 freight diesel locomotive built at Doncaster Works. This was the first one of a total production of 50 locs. It entered service in 1982 with British Rail.
They have been withdrawn from service in the UK by EWS, but you can find some of them in service in other countries in Europe. I presume this one has been preserved....
