New Moves...

New moves added courtesy of Carl Looker, who has again raided the NRM archives for official records of the Deltic fleet and from various internet sources...

Note: The official records give casualty reports for a certain period in 1970 (24/05 - 20/06), they do not, however, unless stated give any clue as to whether the locomotive was removed from its train in favour of another engine - notes are given with each move as to the fault and any corresponding time delay for the given move...

New Look site & new photos...

Chronicles has a new look and menu system based on the old 1975 Locoshed - I hope you like and enjoy the new format as much as it has given me pleasure in creating a retro-style feel to the site. Still in its infancy the overhauled site may well contain the odd fault and broken link, if you can find any please let me know and I'll return it to works for rectification!

New photos added courtesy of John Woolley, John Whiteley, PWS Collection 2015, Lewis Bevan, Russell Watkins, Rob McRorie, Michael Barstow, Marcus Gilmour, George Woods, Antony Guppy, and Chris Davis - click here.

Meanwhile a showcase for some of the 3000-plus photos that are now part of this sites archives can also be found here...
