The last Ford Thames Trader photo for today is rather special. This is a scan of a slide that was found discarded at Neasden Depot by Steve Smith. Taken in late 1963 or early 1964, it shows railway emergency vehicles at the old breakdown garage at the north end of the depot, with the power station visible in the background. The date was determined by the fact that Trader 1281F has red 'LT URGENT' lettering on its illuminated front panel. This was soon changed to the familiar black and white version once it was realised that it was illegal for vehicles to have a red light facing forwards. There is also the fact that 111J (the cream/red lorry alongside) was withdrawn in March 1964. The latter vehicle was a purpose-built AEC Regent new in 1935, of which colour photos are very rare. The third vehicle is one of the three Bedford KZ vans that carried cream/red livery, though unfortunately it is not possible to tell which.
