  1. A303 easbound near Andover, a Scammell Contractor tank transporter with escort. 16/11/19.
  2. Now I look again, the first pic posted appears to have the same wider spaced track arrangement. My '38 ag spec (or should that be hort spec?!) is used for ploughing so is set up in a narrow configuration. I believe - without looking at the book - there were four width settings achieved by various swapping of wheels side to side, inner hub to outer hub etc., in a vaguely similar way to adjusting the rear track of Fergie or Ford with GKN style wheels. I've just noticed it seems to have a tray under the engine, the only one I've ever seen other than mine. Does it run?
  3. The carrier rollers, idler wheels and belt guard suggest a later version mg2, the main hubs look to be missing the outer castings. Shame the fuel tank casting is damaged, should be repairable though. Any makers or contract plates? An invasion star??? Very slow up the beach!
  4. May be of use to someone... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ww2-radio-receivers-BC453-B/163814927804?hash=item2624216dbc:g:joIAAOSwwtNdUTeY
  5. Nice one! The truck in the auction had a Rolls engine, but what did the other truck have in it??? Had a very 'tasty' note to it.
  6. The buyer of the DT turned up with another DT wrecker to collect it. Shame I didn't have time to stick around to see them try and get out of the yard. £7,500ish I think. Don't know what the trolley made though, got too involved in a couple of burgers and missed it.

  9. The John Lovell collection, from memory a real alladins cave, and includes a Diamond T wrecker. Via Thimbleby and Shoreland.
  10. Thanks for the info and link, it would appear that this one is missing most of it's extra bits.
  11. Can anyone identify it? The markings appear to be WC3 8orS 4G on both sides, FHB P... on the back. Just noticed it's also missing a mudguard. Open to offers. Help to load available.
  12. Open to offers, what did you have in mind?
  13. They are near Odiham, Hampshire. £80 each.
  14. We may find the lid, but assume it's missing.
  15. Hi Pete, Not immediately, to hand, I'll try to sort something tomorrow. Just to be clear, it's not mine but I do know the owner.
  16. Found a 2 wheel water bowser, in green with some white stenciling, probably 100-150 gallon I'm guessing. Age wise I would think 1940's/50's. Was in use until recently so probably still useable. Currently perched on top of a pile of scrap! Located near Odiham, Hampshire. Any interest to anyone?
  17. These are still available, but soon to be dumped!
  18. Interesting stuff, a farming background at home perhaps?
  19. Nice pic. It'd be interesting to know when that was taken. It's an MG2, the rear idlers suggest a circa 1938. It looks like it's seen some hard work as the MG2 rollers have been replaced with MG5 type. The plough it's pulling is almost certainly a Ransomes TS38. The brackets for mudguards are unusual but not unheard of.
  20. If it's not ex mil it could still be useful. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/323625896650?ul_noapp=true
  21. Back in 2000 the Europa Truck Trial came to Bordon, the only time they did a UK event. The Tatra 813s are impressive, but for me the good old Explorer running around pulling out the ones that got stuck still gets my vote!
  22. Mostly Plant, but does have a Bedford MK tanker, and an ex-Navy bowser trailer. online catalogue at Thimbleby and Shorland.
