Details: This must be the strangest 'service vehicle' I have shown on this site to date! Quite clearly a hand-operated road-roller, it was nevertheless road-licensed. Built by Stothert and Pitt and new in 1963, it was registered as 525FJJ. A similar vehicle acquired 2 years previously became 219CXK. Information on vehicles like this would not have been published at the time, so it is fortunate that photographers such as John Marshall took note of them. The registration number may have been a clue, London Transport having used several 5xxFJJ marks on service vehicles (like 1292R) and also on the TT class buses used as bicycle transporters at the Dartford Tunnel. The disposal dates for these machines are not known, although 219CXK was seen still in use in November 1980. They may have lasted longer, as both were apparently last licensed on 30th April 1991. The photograph was taken at Waterloo (Cornwall Road?) on 14th May 1969.
