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

1920 Clayton & Shuttleworth End Tipper
This rare steam waggon was orginally in Ireland and was saved from a quarry in the early 1980's. The waggon was fully restored in Ireland before being purchased by the present owners (P & S Lyons) who carried out some further restoration.
The image was taken at the Bedfordshire Steam Rally, Bedfordshire, England in September 2011.
