  • There was a ready use bunker in the cab, usually between the driver's and passenger's seats. With a heavy load on, the driver has wisely taken some extra fuel in those two dirty sacks on the roof rack.
  • What a fabulous photo and what a fabulous vehicle - I read somewhere that they were still in use until the 1950s - I know that they are dirty, inefficient and caused huge pollution, but there is something about them.
  • Like steam trains
  • Thanks for the info marcel.
