Details: Taken on 9th May 1987, this is a view of the large yard at the front of Chiswick Works, originally used by trainee bus drivers but later taken over by the Distribution Services fleet. Visible are a variety of Leyland, Dodge, Ford and Bedford lorries, all in the standard grey livery of the time. The dropside lorry on the right is believed to be 2308B, new in 1981. Most Bedford TL dropside lorries had either crew-cabs and/or tail-lifts and were generally the heavier weight variants. 2308B was a lighter TL860 and (if this is actually 2308B in the picture) appeared to have metal dropsides rather than planked ones. It lasted just six and a half years with LT and does not appear to have ever been clearly photographed.
