Details: When I published a photograph of Maudsley tanker 1014MY last month, I mentioned seeing a small preserved tanker at the Chiswick Works open day in 1983. John Hillman kindly sent this photograph of the vehicle in question. Although it proves that it was not 1014MY, it does raise a couple of other points. ELP615 was an Albion tanker preserved in the livery of Shell-Mex BP. The ELPxxx registration series was used by LT, who took all of the ELP101 to ELP300 range and applied them to STL and T class buses (plus CR1), seven numbered service vehicles and two staff cars. Secondly, what was the reason for this vehicle being included in the display at Chiswick? I don't recall any other non-buses being present.
