Nice pics Steve :thumbup:

Pete I would think it would have a Perkins Eagle which is basically the old Rolls Royce Eagle diesel.

Is the turning circle measured in shunts then?

I hope your depot has n't invested in it, it'd be a worrying advert for the brand?!

Steve it would have a poor turning circle being a six wheel drive animal, that is one of the disadvantages of drive wheels on the steering axle. :thumbup:
