Re: Mystery Machines

One way to get a 2 in 1 :) not an arrangement I have seen before . It's a Cat filmed working on a new town Glenrothes in 1959 , anyone know what model ?

Re: Carrying On - Older Trucks in Use

This turned up over the road from me the other day, long time since I have seen a Seddon Atkinson in use.
Very clean truck for a dirty job gully sucking.

Going back to the Thames 400E ' Powertruk' just found an advert for one ( do any survive ? it would be great to go into the pub and tell the lads I have just bought a mid engined Ford ! )-

AFAIK all Fodens were 6x4s certainly the 70s 80s 90s ones.

Worked in Highway Maintenance for a while and we had some 1990s ones and the drivers hated them specially the gearboxes ,they loved the Scania replacements.

Re: Dumpers on Screen

Going back to the Nimbus this is a 61 advert and is LHD , So must have changed form right to left hand drive between 58 and 61.

Re: Classic pictures Updated 05/07/2020

Yes they were 8x6 and in service.
Not many made though,
don't know exact numbers
Atkinson 6x6 much more numerous.
