Re: UK no. plates

If you can print out the correctly proportioned layouts on your own printer at the smallest size for quality, then pop into a print shop and for the cost of one print reduce it down to required size on a decent photocopier, you should get the right size at the quality you're after? And printed on ca...

It looks like Harrison stretched the chassis and added a middle non-steer axle supported on airbags. See:

Could it be a Pacific? Not a home-made cab I've seen before. The load looks like a Ransomes 490 shovel, but plate says 442?

Re: Classic pictures Update 19/09/2017

....Could be they used a additional axle..?... Interesting - yes it is quite possible, but depends how it fitted - the one shown below (only pic I can find) has the extra axle set further back, but the one in your York advert pics show it quite close to the tractor's axle, just like the recovery pi...

Re: Classic pictures Update 19/09/2017

I didn't know about this Ryan example, but Siddle C Cook of Consett ran one of these with a demountable ballast body which was also sometimes used as a 5th wheel tractor unit. The tractor in the recovery pic appears to be the much smal...
