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

Tyne and Wear FB Volvo Fulton/Wylie
Seen back in late 1988 upon the opening of Hadrian Road fire station in Wallsend (Tyne and Wear), was this Fulton/Wylie Volvo FL6.It was on display here with other machines. They were waiting for the official party to open the station, and invited us to stay and watch. However, we were on our way to an appointment at the Newcastle Busways Depot at Byker which we had arranged to visit that day.
