Updates for June 2017

The dog days of summer are here again, now coupled to the challenges of meaningfully filling these wonderful retirement days. With a page now established for each Class 24 & 25 locomotive, the task continues in updating & refining these pages with much information & images received over the years for which I previously didn't have the free time to process quickly. And with the impressive speed and bandwidth now available for internet viewing many of the thumbnail views are being removed and modest sized views (pixel width 700 or 750) are being placed amongst the text portions of each page. Whilst the use of a modest sized image may have some drawbacks with regards to the detail orientated amongst us, hopefully the text will include those details unique to the locomotive concerned. Of course there are many other external resources which can provide that detail, including a page I've set up on Flickr to include many large images of the Class 24s & 25s, amongst other subject matter. The link to this site is: My Flickr page

Update for January 2017

Recent updates include:

Over the last couple of months many of the updates to the Class 25 pages (and some others as well) have included images provided by Roger Geach, including a fine selection of the Class 25s when they saw service in Devon & Cornwall.

Roger has just produced a hardback A4 size book (through YPD Books) covering the Plymouth - Penzance route, more information about the book and information on how to obtain it is available at the link below:

Update for October 2016

Apologies for the delay in updating the website, an 8,300 mile cross country road trip turned out to be quite an adventure, but now things should be returning to some form of normality.

Recent updates include:
The addition of the page for D5108 / 24108 marks the completion of a page dedicated to each Class 24/25. Much information has been provided by many readers over the years which has not yet been added to the website, it is hoped that this backlog of information can now be cleared!
