This site can be traced back to it's humble beginnings on a 'tied' server in 1998/1999. In those early days, the site was very basic and held basic information about the Class 37s, but as the 'exported' and 'Australian built' locomotives were uncovered that were also fitted with the 12CSVT diesel engine, these were added. As the site evolved, more information and news was added concerning the classes of locomotives and the scope of the site changed to include 12CSV diesel engines in Marine and Industrial applications, it was around this time that the current web address came into being.

There is always a need for material to be included in the site, can you help? Could you supply recent or historic images? If you can please get in touch via the contact form.

Many Thanks in advance.
