|Details: Although this picture has been published elsewhere it is interesting for showing what was a unique combination in the London Transport Service Vehicle fleet. 1310KB was a Karrier Bantam prime mover bought in 1964 and habitually used, as here, with Carrimore shelter carrying semi-trailer C21. The mismatched-looking pair lasted until 1972, after which their role was performed by King semi-trailer K1 and one of several Ford D-series prime movers. Just two other Karriers were bought by London Transport, although 10 were inherited from or ordered by the LCCT prior to 1933. The other pair were both battery lorries, comprising Bantam 1303KB and larger Gamecock 1404KG.|
When seen outside Chiswick Works on 14th September 1966, 1310KB appears to have been used for the slightly less arduous duty of shifting signs used at the Epsom Derby.
