Details: Another make new to LTSV (Scammell) and another yellow tow truck with the unusual 2+1 axle arrangement. However, the operator this time is a bit further afield, being SUT of Sheffield. The SUT (Sheffield United Tours) name goes back many years but this incarnation dates from 1987, when the privatised coach operator National Travel (East) diversified into local buses. Subsequent events were complicated to say the least, but the operator was bought by South Yorkshire Transport (SYT!) in 1989 and was eventually merged. The truck is representative of several flamboyant designs introduced in the 1960s and 1970s, although perhaps Scammell went overboard with the fluting.... Photographed at Sheffield Garage on 27th August 1990.
