Details: 1014MY was one of two Maudsley Mogul tankers bought second-hand from Shell-Mex in 1954. 1013MY was withdrawn in 1962 but 1014MY lasted a further 10 years. It was photographed at Rye Lane Garage on 21st March 1969. Comparison with earlier photos - such as the one published in the 2003 Capital Transport book on service vehicles - show that it had been modified with new headlamps (replacing smaller ones higher up, where the circular plates are) and side indicators. 1014MY was sold to the Commercial Vehicle club in 1972 suggesting it was preserved. I do remember seeing a similar vehicle, although not in LT livery, at one of the Chiswick Works open days in the 1980s, but I can't seem to trace any pictures of it. Rye Lane Garage was opened in 1952, having built on the site of the former permanent way depot. It closed in March 1969, the same month as this photo.
