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

Nicolas Tractomas (RDC318X) Teesside 1983
Large loads on Teesside were commonplace upto the end of the 90's. To see one was always spectacular. This combination was operated by Sunters of Northallerton, and came from Head Wrightsons of Stockton on Tees through to I.C.I Billingham. Here the combination has just reached the bottom of beaconsfield and is about to go up the A19 in preparation for the assault up Billingham Bank.
