News Roundup - November 2013

Apart from the Story/Caledonian and Colas/Amey acquisitions, November 2013 has been a rather quiet month. Here's a quick round-up...


Several long-missing RRV have re-surfaced after many years. The ex-Balfour Beatty Wickham/Ford Cargo lorry/access platform, and two ex-Gamble dumper/cranes have turned up in Gloucestershire. The Ford was last noted in 2004, and the Gamble dumpers were sold at an auction during 2007.

Fastline Geismar EGOs

Two former Fastline Geismar EGOs (EGO4 901032 and EGO5 901029) & their trailers have left Hardingham for a new life in Poland. Quite what this life will be is unknown - they're currently for sale with Tor-Rent (not to be confused with Torrent).
