Can you confirm this dsl please?

FE was replaced by the FF in 1960 (also late 1959 to early 1960 registration is given by this rough approximation).

XXF series was London Aug 59 to July 61 "allocated in blocks". So early 61 is an assumption for 948 based on a steady run of issues. Noted that several other London XXx series started in July Aug 59 as "allocated in blocks" but all finished in July 1960. Maybe XXF did the same apart from a handful of final stragglers which eventually emerged in 1961??

Thanks dsl, The Morris FF (5-ton) was introduced March 1959 (the FF 7-ton a year earlier May 1958), presumably replacing the FE with the Willenhall cab unless there was an overlap or late registrations.

Allocated in blocks and the front panel says its 'British Railways' (logo just visible) so contract for supply would possibly for the original Willenhall cab but model change got in the way. Assuming the old cab was still available that is what would be supplied - just guessing

As was said this morning on the political programme, the devil is in the detail. It is not unreasonable to assume batch ordering by BR, or similar customers. The benefit of a batch order allows similar benefit to the prime contractor, who can negotiate based upon worthwhile levels of business when talking to his suppliers.

All this can lead to apparently obsolete products being delivered at the end of production runs, especially in semi bespoke equipments like truck chassis, where a design and its replacement may be in simultaneous production, especially if the update is relatively simple.
