Another Selection from My UK Collection

Little TL Bedford articulated unit looks ideal for beer deliveries, with its large and low deck.
Bass was available on the NZ market at one stage, but haven't seen it in the supermarket liquor departments.
It may still be available in some of the private stores that deal in the more obscure names.
W.J.Oldacre of Collumpton, Devon had this 8 wheeler high sided bulk tipper wearing the Seddon-Atkinson badge.
B series ERF in 4x2 configuration with 3 axle flat deck was operated by Mitchell's Transport of Elvington in Yorkshire.
Elvington was well known for its RAF base which operated throughout the Second World War up until the early 90s,
Red and blue paint and traditional pin-striping for W. Sweeting & Sons Foden from Sandford in Bristol.
Very smart Volvo F86.
Lack of sign-writing suggests this may be a restored "show only" truck.
Dale Worsley of Abbotskerswell (don't you just love some of those English village names) had this ERF EC6 with emerald green paint and smart sign-writing and pin-stripes.
Two axle truck and small trailer makes me think it is used for transporting something very light.
Unlike this Hewden Stuart Crane Hire rig with its 6 axle trailer, which looks to be a very heavy load for this  430Ati DAF.
And this appears to be just the jib of the crane; the remainder must be fairly substantial.
I've always liked the N series Volvos. This N1020 is rigged as a heavy duty recovery truck, operating for Roger Austin of Raunds, a small market town in Northamptonshire.
I'm not that familiar with the bonneted AECs, but I know one model was called Mogul.
IVECO 190.30 ballasted tractor pulls a neat little launch.
Leigh Environmental's DAF 2300 may not have even done its first days work, when this picture was taken.
Wide-cabbed TM Bedford 4x2 in Marshall-Tufflex livery.
Marshall-Tufflex manufacture and supply cable management products.
