Details: Leyland introduced the first of its T45 range of trucks in 1980, these featuring an attractive cab created by Ogle Design. Different configurations of vehicles had different model names, London Transport buying two examples of the Cruiser articulated tractor and eleven of the rigid Freighter. Six of the latter were bodied as bus recovery vehicles while five became dropside lorries. 2401L was a Freighter 13.11 new on 6th December 1983, the same day as larger Freighter 16.13 2395L. It was based at Chiswick Works, moving to Acton Works when Chiswick closed and finally being sold in 1992. This undated photograph shows it leaving Wandsworth Bus Garage with a portable compressor on board. All but one of the Freighter lorries were fitted with folding cranes behind the cab. Note the label on the front, which reads 'Special journeys only'!
