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.

Classic line-up at Rhyl. July 1988
Three old girls lined up together for the last time. Taken two weeks after Denbigh recieved their new Volvo FL6.18/Fulton+Wylie WrL E499UTJ, ERF 84RF/ERF Firefighter was in the spare bay. Took the opportunity to capture the glory day's at Rhyl. Alongside HEY246N were Dennis RS133/Dennis WrL RDM360V and Renault-Dodge G13c/Fulton+Wylie WrL B37 OJC.
One Rolls-Royce engine and two Perkins V8 engines made it a joy to be photographing and listening to them. Had all three bells going on request after this shot was taken.
Sic transit gloria mundai.
