29th December sees the website celebrate it's ninth year...
We'd like to take this opportunity to thank all the very many contributors who have sent in photos, sightings and news over the years - without you it would not have grown into the informative website that it has become today. In particular we would like to thank Roger Butcher, Peter Hall and Alex Hall at NPT Publishing who have continued to help us with updates and to John Griffiths for taking over the everyday running of the Road Railer pages.
With increasing contributions from people who work on the railway too (mainly through photo comments) the site has become much more than a place for numbers - it has hopefully become a place for learning about this interesting aspect of the rail network, as well as a place for healthy discussion!
Party like it's 1999
And for those of you who weren't around at the beginning - this is how it all started!

Looking at this first version of the website makes me cringe now, but I had good intentions - to fill the apparent OTP void in the media at the time.
We've seen several incarnations since then but I think you will agree it has come a long way since the early days!
