Bloody awful things and this one looks like the center bearing on the prop shaft has collapsed.

Quickest way outta Bulwell?..no- not through a pub door but in a Marshalls wagon. An education in itself living across from their yard.6f5630d703e6b045ea00f19a21924d82.pngAnyone remember this crowd?..based on Glaisdale Drive?..

Seen their wagons parked up on Glaisdale, but I thought Scotland. Dundee maybe.

Edited Thinking back. It was George Allinsons of Darlington I saw on Glaisedale. Mid 60's.

West's are still going, they do a lot for boots.

There is not really a big haulier left in Nottingham, this is probably due to the lack of work from, all of the old big companies.
