Home page for the Archived pages section
As the website is being converted incrementally to a new version this interim holding page is required to act as an indexing hub for pages remaining in the old format. The links across the site will be either to a new format page, where the content has already been converted, or to a page remaining in the pre-2020 version of the site. The return options will be either to here, or to a new format page where a direct link is shown. (Section last updated 4 March 2022)

New Wordpress based site - expected during 2022
This revised index page is the first step towards conversion of the site to a modern Wordpress based, scalable, version. (Section revised revised 4 March 2022).
Internet continuity - older versions of the Society website
As archived copies of our older print publications will include the reference to our former website URL of www.stephensonloco.fsbusiness.co.uk in perpetuity we have added this reference here to assist with internet continuity. We hope that by now any external Links Page sites will have been updated to include the current URL. This entry is so that search engine indexing will pick up the old reference but provide the active link destination as this home page. Our old page explaining why we left Freeserve back in 2010 is here, retained as it is an interesting reminder of how fast things in the IT world change.
We also include this link to the former fsbusiness website (as stored on the Internet Wayback Archive) as several captures of the former site are available there. (Broken link found and fixed / section updated 17 July 2018).
Page originally created May 2020, any subsequent sectional updates are as shown.
