I dont know where Andrews were running out of I only saw one trailer with Andrews on the side that was when I joined Clearways at the old BRS depot on Triumph road Frank also bought some Leyland road trains for the Boots contract He was in competition with Wests for it a penny cheaper in those days and you got the contract They say old man Andrews was a good boss to work for I started on an old P reg leyland with air operated clutch if you left it in gear at the traffic lights it would lose the air and take off wether you wanted to or not I remember a chap from norfolk on the dock he used to talk like the singing postman Heh yer gorra loit boy meeowed
