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

CBP 87L preserved in 1997
Sorry to hear that Dennis D CBP 87L has been scrapped, having been saved initially. This is a scan of a picture taken at Shoreham Airport on July 1st 1997, when the appliance was part of the Thomas family collection of vehicles, which for a while were displayed adjacent to the historic terminal building at the airport. At this time it was in fine condition and well stowed with equipment as the open locker shot shows. Also on site at this time was West Sussex Dennis R OTR 211S (Shoreham, Arundel & East Preston) which I do not think has survived either.
