Commer TS3 by Mike Jeffries - Edward Beck was based in Greg Street, Reddish, near Stockport and had three Commer TS3s at one time, the TS stood for two-stroke and the 3 for three cylinders. Three cylinders seems small for a lorry engine but there were six horizontally-opposed pistons with a Rootes supercharger which boosted the diesel two-stroke unit and gave it a distinctive exhaust note like no other.

Austin Transporter by Mike Jeffries - Before the development of the Carrimore car transporter trailer the loading and un-loading of cars was a long and complicated affair, but the rams that allowed the top deck to raise and lower cut down loading and un-loading times at a stroke. Here a Mark Ii Carrimore trailer coupled to an Austin tractive unit grinds its way up a steep hill loaded with some of BMC’s finest offerings in the early sixties.

AEC Air Products by Mike Jeffries - In 1964 the maximum gross lorry weight was increased to 32 tons on four-axle arctic’s but carried a risk of overloading the tractor unit’s rear axle. One answer was the layout adopted by AEC’s Mammoth Minor where a second steering axle on the tractive unit was added as on this impressive Air Products tanker.
