That was an unplanned foliage tour...I was looking at that constructor at a show last week end, its all been very well repaired, no evidence of its previous mishap

Yes, fortunately the RAF type cab is relatively simple to repair as it it is based on a steel frame which is then clad with mostly flat steel sheet, similar to Explorer.  The RE/RCT  Willenhall type cabs are made of pressings which are far more difficult to replicate.

What saved the then owner was the spare wheel davit which fortunately was fitted and took a lot of the force when it rolled. A lucky escape and a good reminder of why you meed to keep your air brake system in good condition.
