Working Vehicles Gallery

The Mechanical Horse Club archive contains a large number of images of the vehicles captured in their 'working clothes'. Club members also have their own private collections and over time we will build a gallery of these on this page..

Here we see Ford D Series and Scammell Townsman tractor units awaiting further duties at Mumps Station in the Oldham area of Manchester. The photo was taken in 1979 by William Aldridge. .

Another Townsman at Mumps Station, this one has clearly seen better days! Photo: William Aldridge.

The Firth Brown steel works in Sheffield used a number of Scammells and similar vehicles with the automatic coupling, here we see a Scarab and a Bedford TK in the latter days of operation at the company. Photo: William Aldridge.
