'CostSaver' Product List
Enjoy a nostalgic journey back to the late ‘fifties and the ‘sixties with this, our first, CD which looks at the Golden Years of British Haulage when ‘home grown’ makes dominated the scene and roped and sheeted loads were the norm. A mix of exclusive colour and black and white pictures. Most leading makes are featured as well as many famous haulage fleets that have since disappeared.
Travelling showmen’s fleets have always held a special fascination for enthusiasts especially in bygone years when such gems as wartime Mack NMs Foden DGs, and Scammell Showtracs were still a common sight. This CD features a host of classic fairground vehicles, in colour and black and white, guaranteed to please most enthusiasts.
Enjoy a nostalgic look back to an era when British heavy haulage was dominated by Scammells and the like. Not forgetting those memorable Wynns Pacifics and rarities such as Sunter’s Rotinoff Atlantic. As well as heavy haulage this CD includes some impressive mobile cranes and recovery vehicles.
Anyone who grew up in the post World War 2 period will have memories of British Road Services, the UK’s nationalised transport fleet. BRS underwent many changes over half a century. The vehicles depicted span the period from the mid-‘fifties to the late-‘sixties and include such classics as Bristols and AEC MkIIIs.
Golden Years 2
Our first Golden Years of Haulage CD was so popular we have carried the same theme through to CD No.5 with another nostalgic helping of British classics from those far off years when AECs, Fodens, ERFs and Leylands ruled the roads.
Buses and Coaches
Commercial vehicles come in two distinct groups – goods and passenger. While most of our CDs feature goods vehicles this CD looks at buses and coaches from the late ‘fifties onwards and includes many great classics, not least London Transport’s iconic RT. Also featured are United Counties Bristol K types, Lodekkas from Crosville and Midland Red D9s.
Eddie Stobart - Then and Now
Eddie Stobart’s famous Carlisle fleet has such a following that we have dedicated a CD exclusively to it. This unique collection includes some of Stobart’s older trucks like their Ford Cargo drawbar outfits and comes right up to more recent additions like the Scania R-series and Mercedes Actros.
First introduced into the UK in 1968, Volvo’s F88 became an icon amongst the trucking fraternity. This CD recalls some of the best-known operators like Dawsonfreight and Cadwallader as well as featuring some fine examples from Volvo’s home country.
Scania '0' and '1' Series
Along with Volvo, Scania took the UK by storm during the 1970s and has not looked back since. Swedish trucks like the Scania 110 and 111 were pacesetters that changed the face of British haulage. This CD features some excellent examples from leading UK fleets together with many from Sweden.
Foden - The Power & The Glory
As the oldest British truck manufacturer Foden has a special place in UK automotive history and this fantastic collection of 300 photographs celebrates the company’s 150th year
which, sadly, also saw the end of production. Old favourites include the DG, FG/FE with S18 cab, the S21, the tilt cab S24 and later models like the S80/83 and up to the last Alphas.
Leyland T45 Series
It might be difficult to believe that such a modern looking truck as the Leyland T45 Roadtrain and its rigid contemporary, the Constructor, were launched onto the market as long ago as 1980. Thirty years on these trucks have become classics in their own right. They proved to be the last all-Leyland product before the formation of Leyland DAF.
Bedford - You Saw Them Everywhere 1
For over half a century one make dominated the light to medium truck market in the UK and that was Bedford. This is one of a trio of PD Truck Photo CDs to chart the whole history of the famous marque and covers the period from 1931 to 1946. The fascinating archive pictures include not only trucks but also buses, vans and fire engines.
Bedford - You Saw Them Everywhere 2
The Bedford story continues with this CD which covers the period 1947 to 1962, taking in the famous K, M and O-types, S-types, TJs, CAs and a host of other models.
Bedford - You Saw Them Everywhere 3
Completing the Bedford trio is CD No.14 which covers the 1963 to 1986 period thus bringing the story up to date. This CD majors on TKs, KMs and TMs whilst not forgetting vans, buses and emergency vehicles.
NOTE: The above set of three Bedford CDs is available at a special all-in price of £39.99 including postage and packing. They may also be bought singly at the normal price of £14.95 plus £1.00 p+p.
European Trucks in the '60s & '70s
Departing from the British theme this CD features European trucks in the ‘sixties and ‘seventies, including great classics from Büssing, Berliet, Faun, Krupp, MAN, Saurer, Saviem and a host of other makes. Over 250 pictures are included in both colour and black and white.
"The Greatest Show on ERF"
Along with their near neighbours Foden, in Sandbach, ERF have now ceased production and their closure effectively marked the end of mainstream manufacturing of British trucks. This extensive compilation of photographs features the all-time favourites that gave ERF a massive following among enthusiasts, from the early CI models to the last ECs.
British Road Services, Second Series
Our first BRS CD, no.4, was so popular we have put together another collection of pictures spanning an even greater period by adding in material from British Road Services’ own archives as well as many press shots from manufacturers. The result is a stunning historical record of this fascinating organisation that was formed over sixty years ago.
The Big A
As, one by one, the great names of the UK truck industry have disappeared from the scene so our thirst for nostalgia has grown. Atkinson occupied a special place in most enthusiasts’ memories, especially before the link up with Seddon. This CD looks back to the pre-1975 period when the ‘Big A’ was Knight of the Road.
Of all the British trucks that have appeared in the post-World War 2 period Bedford’s TK stands out as one of the most popular and successful. The total production figure of well over half a million bears testimony to its success. This CD is easily the most comprehensive photo archive ever compiled on the type, and includes many official Bedford press pictures.
Post War AEC Lorries
Though AEC ceased production over three decades ago the name, and its famous blue triangle badge, will live on in transport folklore as one of the UK’s most celebrated marques. The CD celebrates AEC lorries of the post-war period with over 250 working shots.
