Details: A rare vehicle, thankfully now in secure hands, is this AEC Mercury 10-ton lorry. New to London Transport in grey livery as 1841Q (THX841M) in March 1974, this was the last of many thousands of AEC vehicles bought. It ran as a bolster lorry for over 10 years, carrying heavy parts such as bus engines between Chiswick works and the bus garages. 1841Q was based at Walthamstow while similar 1840Q lived at Stockwell. After disposal, the lorry eventually came into the hands of bus operator Blue Triangle, who run both modern and vintage vehicles. Converted to a towing lorry, the vehicle may still see some use, and was photographed at the North Weald bus rally on 30th June 1996.
