Now, this photo does (fairly) clearly show the support prop under the front of the bodywork on some of the C/VOY Mercedes trucks, here in a raised position but with the round, pivoted 'foot-plate' discernible. What were these for? It is hardly conceivable that there was a risk of these vehicles tipping over, even whilst using the small hoists some were fitted with (2430M did have one in the nearside front of the body, a hint of the orange device just being visible through the windows). As for the details, this is 2430M parked on the rear entrance roadway to Chiswick Works on 4th May 1987. It is in original 'work force' livery, albeit with some of the paint peeling off the body. Ironically the other photo of 2430M on this website was also taken by Colin at the same location, but a year earlier and on the other side of the roadway.
