Exkvate3140 and GC1,

I'm not sure that these 2 nice ladies are truck drivers but more certainly ladies "offering their charms" to truck drivers as, at that time, I don't think that Nicoletti had any feminine driver.
The only telephone number I can therefore offer is Nicoletti's, visible on the Berliet door, in a 1/50 scale of course!

Regards.
Guy

Jean-Jacques has managed so far to keep live his child soul. The following pictures tend to demonstrate that grown-up people can also play in sand pits:

Quinella,

The standard Conrad Mack DM model is fitted with a German Meiller tipping body, while this one received a homemade French Marrel unit.

Guy you need to tell jean to get that NZG topless Cat 988 into that seen, otherwise he is going to have a traffic jam on the pit road. If he has grandchildren they must be very envious of him and his toys. My wife would leave me if she came home and saw me in the backyard with a homemade pit filled with 1-50 scale equipment, and my kids would take pictures and have them all over those social network places. You guys are lucky over there. Again nice all around.

An United Transport heavy haulage.
The company owned Econofreight United Transport (EUT), merging in May 1986 equipment from Econofreight, Sunters, Wrekin Roadways and Wynns companies. These all 4 heavy haulage majors disappeared that month, which can be considered as a "black day" for that British industry.
The black and red heavy tow truck was an ex-Wynns. Apparently, United Transport didn't have a lot of vehicles working under its own colours, all equipment being soon repainted in Econofreight Heavy Transport blue and white livery:











The heavy haulage combination, bringing to a St Fergus gas terminal in Scotland a boxed Nuovo Pignone MCL 1200 centrifugal gas compressor of 93.5 tonnes in weight (modified Corgi load), is made of a Scammell Contractor Mk1 6x4/2 ballasted tow truck (Corgi model) and a 9-line Nicolas modular trailer (modified Corgi model).
