|Details: My 'fly-pasts' of Acton's lorry yard on 1st September 2017 were to try and obtain the fleetnumbers on the two recently-delivered Dennison flatbed trailers. I was not particularly successful in this (one was still un-numbered and the other 'may' be T78!) but I did capture these interesting views of one of them. Extendable trailers have been used since the arrival of T52 in 1992, followed by T60, T68 and T74 over the next decade. However, I don't think I have ever seen any of them in extended mode. When I passed Acton in the morning, one of the new Dennison trailers was being checked over and was extended. When I passed the other way about an hour later it was still there but had been retracted. These photos, although of poor quality, do show the significant difference in length. Assuming that this is in fact one of the two Dennison trailers photographed in July, this is the one with the taller headboard. The one with the lower headboard appeared to be numbered T78, so I am going to risk assuming that this one will eventually become T77.|
