Details: Tower Wagons were used to provide access to Tram and Trolleybus overhead wires. The last of these were bought in 1958 and played a role in the dismantling of the system. Four of the final five AEC Mercury-based vehicles were sold by mid-1964, including 1076Q (TXV909) seen here. After just six years with London Transport, this vehicle went on to serve the Reading Transport undertaking for a further 35 years. It was photographed at their depot on 28th February 1991, and was later sold into preservation. Note that the roof dome window has been plated over.
