Sankey tralier - any idea of age?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, this is my restored Sankey, I could really do with your help!


Firstly, does anyone know the age? Am I right in thinking it is a Narrow track? Also, what is that flap for at the back?


Veh no. 41 ET 22 - chassis 2012 - contract no WV/5307 - CODE 2855, 0790

Yes it's a narrow track, ET puts the contract date at 66/67 but it could be younger depending on how many trailers the contract is for. The flap is for the water bowser that fits in these trailers.


I have a friend in the USA who has a stock of NOS vinyl tops for the M151 in the background if you need one!

Thanks for the reply, it still has RAF roundals visible, it also has something like 'not suitable for road use - training aid only' on the side, would it have been for sling practice? mechanically it is very good, like it has seen little use.
