    Karrier WDS

    Finally for now, I reattach one of the reports I posted before but with the missing last page; and another about the Karrier test route. Karrier report 1.pdf Karrier report 3.pdf

    Great to see such rapid progress. As further encouragement, some more ads. This time form The World's Carriers, 1917 (part 1/2):
  4. Another picture from the darker recesses of the collection.. This one from The World's Carriers February 15, 1918.
  5. A couple of pictures of the Wilkins Unloading Gear in action, and the articles they are from. The first is a Hallford, the second looks to be a Foden. Enjoy! Wilkins 1.pdf Wilkins 2.pdf

    The catalogue I have only quotes 1 length chassis for the WDS: from starting handle to towing hooks overall - 20ft 10in. Of interest also is an insert dated 18 June 2019: The following special features hitherto fitted to this chassis to conform to the War Department's Subsidy Specification will no longer be supplied:- Water cooling system for footbrake drum; spare oil tank on dash; sprags; towing hooks; bolster brackets; head lamp generator and head lamp brackets; driving mirror; rear mudguard stays. The list of special fittings and accessories will therefore now be as follows:- Centrifugal governor; radiator guard of stout steel tube, supported by steel brackets from the main frame members and fitted in front of radiator; 4 steel mudguards, stays to front guards only; 2 paraffin side lamps and brackets; 1 paraffin tail lamp and bracket; 1 horn.

    At one time it looked as if it was to be restored with a period removals box? I take it that is no longer an option?
  8. It's only taken 10 years to find a photo - but at long last... Hope it's worth the wait!

    Indeed - and hard to find. Some WD / ex-WD Karriers, including the 5 ton chain drive type. If only one of these could be put on for every tube strike!
