  1. One difference between the 46ton wrecker chassis and the 65ton tractor unit is the brake chambers- the wrecker has type 24's and the T/U has type 30's.
  2. Nice job Simon, a most enjoyable thread. It's great to see an artillery Martian being restored to such a high standard, and with the Rolls Royce petrol engine too! :-)
  3. Fascinating reading Adrian, thanks for the update.
  4. That cab was sometimes known as the 'Club of Four' cab as Volvo, Renault, Iveco and Daf all used versions of it on their trucks in the '80s. How long did it take to get those pesky studs out Mr 'Bartron'? lol
  5. Hi,


    This is a long shot but I'm hoping you might be able to help. I'm after the locating pin which fits the Scammell Eka car frame/spec frame and was wondering if you know were I can get one, I've tried most places now and getting a bit desperate. Also would you happen to have a CES book? would it be possible to email me a pic of the pin?


    Any help would be greatly appreciated.



  6. 66GT67 is now owned by Garratt Commercials of Sparkford, Somerset and is painted in Red/Silver nowadays.
  7. Thanks for the info and tips Mike, I guess what I never knew won't hurt me when I go next year! Jonathan
  8. Very Nice indeed! I was going to go to Locomotion this year, but it clashed with a show here! I'm definitely going next year though. Did you enjoy it FV1604A?
  9. Feraille=Scrap? Yes, I'm afraid it's gone already and is probably part of the Birds Nest stadium in Beijing by now.
  10. Hi Gordon M, it was in the Dundee suburb of Lochee and it did come from Pitlochry. It was pretty rough and it's now been weighed in for scrap when it was £200+ a ton. It would have been nice if someone had taken it on for restoration as Federals are far less common than WLF's. Regards, Jonathan
  11. Thanks Tony, I don't know what I was thinking of! Old age I guess?.........I'll get my coat. Regards, Jonathan
  12. A rare truck was this WW2 Federal 606 Type C-2 Wrecker I took a photo of in Dundee a few years ago. The original petrol engine had been replaced by a Gardner Diesel and the wrecker jib had been shortened by the looks of it.
  13. I've just found this picture of a CX22 I took at Doune near Stirling in the mid 80s. Most of the interesting vehicles in this yard disappeared a few years later and I've no idea if this survived.
