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
New Zealand LDV YQ4775
Believed to be the last LDV still in service in the South Island, this 1999 example was new to Christchurch before spending time at Lyttelton. It ended its days as an events vehicle at Oxford. It was photographed at Wrights Road in Christchurch in May 2013 awaiting decommissioning & disposal.
