Details: Restoration work on MC11, the preserved mobile canteen trailer, was completed at the London Bus Musuem earlier this year, and it was re-united with Bedford tractor unit 702B. This interesting view taken at the Museum on 7th April 2019 shows the coupling between the two units, and also the lengthy ramps fitted to the back of the tractor. Presumably these were to make it easy to reverse onto the trailer for coupling. I believe the trailers had their number painted on the chassis (once separate numbers were allocated in about 1955) somewhere in this area, but nothing is visible in this shot. That set me thinking about how we know this is actually MC11. It is mentioned in the Rennie/Aldridge book that 702B and MC11 were preserved after serving with Liverpool Corporation. However, that operator did buy 4 of the ex London Transport tractor/trailer combinations. Hmm...
