Details: The second flatbed lorry used by London Transport for driver training was 1866B. This was in fact quadruply rare in the 1970s lorry fleet. It was a flatbed, it was a Bedford, it had three axles and it was acquired second-hand. Just three year's old when bought, this Bedford TK lorry was based at Chiswick Works until it was withdrawn in 1983. In this view taken on 23rd August 1977, 1866B is parked in the front yard at Chiswick alongside a pair of RT buses also being used for driver training. On the right is a Ford Escort estate car, several of which (like 1848F) were allocated to the training school.
