Details: Yet another new marque for LTSV, but one that will likely remain unique. As the design would suggest, Western Star is an American truck manufacturer, few of whose products are imported to the UK. One that was was this impressive tow truck photographed by Damon in Eastbourne on 27th March 2010. It is in the fleet of Mick Gould Commercials, whose penchant for US hardware has already been seen. One change since that earlier picture is that the Eastbourne Buses fleet was bought by Stagecoach, whose livery is carried by the Enviro 200 bus on tow. Among the various side lettering on the truck are CAT diesel power logos, addresses of Flimwell and Clacket Lane Services, and a graphic headed 'Mickey's Wrecker Service'.

DamonThat's an Enviro 300. 27576 in the Stagecoach fleet. It took some effort to get this picture as I saw the flashing lights ahead of me on the way back from B&Q. I tried to work out its route to the garage and head it off but I kept getting it wrong and seeing the darned thing ahead of me still. It was just lucky that he took a slightly different route into the Birch Road industrial estate enabling me to go the other way and get this shot after screeching to a halt and doing a ''Starsky & Hutch'' across the bonnet!.Wed 07/04/2010, 15:18
