Whilst out in the Wellingborough area earlier, I took a pic of two (standard-sized) trailers, and can't seem to match the type up to anything. Unfortunately the only angle I could get was directly head on, so can't see a company name or anything, and the ends are quite bare, with no fleet markings, or distinctive wording or fonts, although I can say that both are of the same type. They are all-over yellow, and both look fairly new or recently refurbished, but both show evidence of some use. The main feature I haven't been able to match up to any type is that the two sets of small lights at each end seem to be mounted on a small steel plate, and arranged vertically, with the white light directly above the red. Does anyone have an idea what type this might be please, or what operator? Obviously a pic can be provided if anyone wants to see - Vince or Ben can pass on my contact details to anyone who thinks they might be able to help.
Being up in Scotland I would suggest that you narrow down or pinpoint the exact area that you were in. Ie AP or Station for a start
Ie new Story trailers been noted bye P&R
Check their for their sightings in that area
'Whilst out in the Wellingborough area' - Northamptonshire, large town on the MML. Didn't think I needed to be more specific than that Jim!
Please email over the photos Dan and we'll have a look...
Dan, Ben sent me a copy of your photo and I am virtually certain these are latest model GOS T5020's. This picture shows a similar light arrangement but from the other end:
Given you identified TRS1390 there, my guess is this pair are also high numbered, TRS, examples although admittedly, quite a number of these do seem to have fleetnumbers on the ends, which this pair don't.
Many thanks Nick. Looking at the pic I took of TRS1390, the lights are similarly placed, but on 1390 they're not mounted on what appears to be a steel plate, which both the unidentified two are (the unidentified two both show opposite ends towards the camera, so I know the light style is the same at both ends). However, the end does look similarly bare, and I would certainly agree they're of the same, if not very similar type. Definitely will be looking for photos of this model over the next few months as both have a couple of marks that might lead to a possible future identification, one more so than the other. I think that's a very good starting point though, so thanks again for your help.
Just checked the photo again, they are indeed the same orientation - it was the differing position of the air hose that threw me, but I can see from the style of the handles that they are indeed the same way round. TRS1390 was also this way round.
