  1. For information the Universal Carrier is the one that was previously exhibited at the DLI Museum at Aykley Heads, Durham before the collection was spread about numerous locations as a “cost cutting exercise” by the local authority.

  6. With regard to parking a vehicle on the footway highway law deems it to be an offence to drive on/along the footway, but not illegal to park on a footway (unless there is some local bylaw to that effect). As for obstruction of the footway by a parked vehicle providing there is 1200mm clear footway action is unlikely to be taken against a motorist, again with the proviso that there is not a traffic order to that effect. The local highway authority may take a dim view however should it be possible to prove that damage has occurred due to the tracks slewing etc....
  7. Extract from Bedford MW drivers handbook.
  8. I’ve come into this topic a bit late, but here’s my thoughts as a person who used to agree to dropped kerb applications for a local authority.... Be honest up front, a track-laying vehicle is fine provided it is road legal. If the jobs done correctly the neighbours can’t complain! Planning application normally only required if you are on a classified road. It’s not just a dropped kerb you get for your money, it’s also extra protection to the numerous utilities that lie just below the footway. You will definitely need the highway authority, or it’s approved contractor to carry out the work, due to public liability insurance reasons ( usually a figure of £5m) . This won’t be cheap and at the end of the day you won’t end up "owning" the section of altered footway, it’s still the highway authority's. One advantage of doing the job correctly is that the dropped kerb "protects" your right of access to your land and any vehicle parking across it is causing a legal obstruction. Good Luck.....
  9. Jim, I have an original copy of the one for sale on eBay - a left over from my MWD days. It's complete but has a cellophane cover on it. If you're interested please PM me. Tom
  10. I remember being told many years ago by a Chieftain driver that they ran best on brake fluid!

  13. I bought my first jeep in 1971 and various other vehicles have been and gone in the intervening years. Don't currently have a military vehicle (and unlikely to do so again) but still interested in the scene.
