Making a nice change from plain white identikit cars, here is a 'proper' service vehicle! Ford Thames Trader box truck 1283F was one of three bought in 1963 for use as railway breakdown tenders and hence painted (rather liberally) in red rather than grey. Following withdrawal in the early 1980s, two were preserved, while the third ended up with travellers and was eventually scrapped in the 1990s. 1283F has been at the Castle Point Transport Museum at Canvey Island (Essex) for many years and has not been road-licensed since the start of 1988. It was seen at the museum on 6th June 2023, looking fine apart from missing a front number plate.
