Details: This photograph taken at Chiswick Works on 19th May 1987 shows two lorries that were added to the fleet the year before. 2435L was a Leyland Freighter dropside lorry with crane, wearing the short-lived twin pinstriped livery. It was repainted into white and blue (with a black body) in 1991 and lasted until 1999. The lorry was often used with one of the cable-drum carrying trailers, one of which is just visible coupled behind. The lorry on the right is rather more interesting. 2455V was a Volvo F717 articulated tractor unit in unmarked grey livery and one of very few central fleet vehicles that were bought second-hand. The reason for its purchase is not known but it didn't last long, and was already out of use when this photograph was taken. Last licensed in March 1987, it never worked again.
