Sunbar UKMandator The post-war Mk II was available as a lorry and a tractor unit and the name was used for tractor units built from the 1950s to the 1970s. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Associated_Equipment_Company

Not completely clear in the movie but appears to be a tractor unit; the rear wheels are just seen here...

Looked long and hard at this one, both the thumbnail and in the movie...
It looks to be another Austin FE tractor unit.

The rearwards location of the fleet number is unusual and true for these BRS Parcels FE tractors.

1957 Austin 5-Ton 503 - BRS [FE]
They Take The High Road (1960)
Sunbar UKThere was I believe no lighter tractor unit based on the 3-tonner, my error.

As 'simple trucks ratings are for the short wheelbase models were...

1955-1959 Austin/Morris FE (Austin Series III/Morris) '503' 5-Ton 120" w/base
1955-1959 BMC FE '701' 7-Ton 120" w/base (BMC grille Series III)

For a tractor unit the ratings are higher; probably 6-7 tons (based on 5-ton simple truck) and 8-9 ton (for the 7-ton base chassis). British Railways apparently had lighter Austin Loadstar tractor units but these would be unique for their lighter deliveries.

edit: BMC/Austin-Morris used the same 5-ton '503' and 7-ton '701' designations for the tractor units, although the tractor-trailer unit would be considerably higher (but not specified) a result of the rather loose ratings used at the time.


Default to Austin FE perhaps?

Great footage for anyone interested in dams and hydro-electric schemes in Perthshire - I've visited those shown and the glen roads which were newly built then for construction access are spectacular. Killin railway closed in 1965.

They Take The High Road (1960) johnfromstaffs ENInterested to know what people think of the nationalisation of road transport attempted at this time. As a youngster I watched it all fall apart, the local BRS depot first becoming a privately owned base for trucks, then a garage and filling station and now a housing estate. It always struck me that it was far too fragmented an industry to attempt central control.

As far as railways, electricity and water are concerned they should never have been privatised, not so sure about gas though.
