Sadly didn't find out as I was heading the opposite way - one possibility is LH Group as there have been other LUL cranes there in the past. Other than a trip to Rotherham I cant think of anything else except maybe preservation?
I can only agree with all the comments in recent days. Thank you for making the site the fantastic resource it has become.
On a personal note, it has encouraged me to visit places I would likely not have visited around the UK (who would have thought that Weddington Terrace, Nuneaton would ever justify an impromptu day out from West Sussex!) and meet friends who I otherwise would never have met. So thank you!
May I add my congrats to Vince for the longevity of the site.
Looking at the first version took me back. Doesn't seem that long since I discovered the first version from a mention on The Doctor's site in the very early days and have been hooked since. How it's changed. Long may it continue.
The only thing I miss is a list of names. There was once a tab that showed the nameplate and the meaning of it but this seems to have disappeared. It would be nice to have a link back that lists ALL the plant that has been named over the years.
Many congratulations and many thanks to all those who contribute in all ways, large and small and particularly to those who beaver away in the background keeping things up to date and making such a fantastic website and resource.
If any mainline registered machine was to be named, what would your preference be ! I’ll iron the velvet naming curtains ready and let HQ know, you’d be surprised how much use the site gets internally....
Just had a look at the original site which was interesting. Also brings into perspective just how developed the current site is. The behind the scenes knowledge to make it work so well is truly something to be marvelled at. I think the thing that really makes the site so successful is the friendly, helpful and knowledgeable people running it. Hats off to you all.
