Details: The trailers are getting smaller, indeed it would be hard to make one smaller than this. Seen in the lorry yard at Acton Works on 21st November 2019, this is a Turbocast 1000 (!), towable salt/grit spreader made by Glasdon. The main part of the trailer is a 500kg capacity hopper made of plastic (Durapol), while a pair of chain-driven, spreading wheels are at the bottom. One notable aspect of this trailer is that it was carrying the registration plate N435CMF. This belonged to the ex-Police Land Rover, which is believed to have been disposed of in 2016. So, presumably the trailer has been in use for a few years, but has not been out on the public highway. Also visible in this photo is the smallest numbered trailer, mini-tanker T70. This was replaced by a new trailer in early 2018, but it has evidently been retained. Visible on the left is the tow-bar of box trailer CBT57. This part of the lorry yard was normally full of facilities vans until the fleet was cut back at the start of 2018. The three remaining facilities vans can be seen in the top right, these being 7675F, 7674F and 6517F. 6517F is now eleven years old, and is one of very few service vehicles to still have Tube Lines branding.
