14984 unloading prior to being driven into the DFR's Lydney museum.

Supplied new to 'The Gloucester Carriage & Wagon Co Ltd' in May1941. This truck was allocated the number 7, lucky for this one because it's the only known survivor of the fleet.

This truck was acquired by the Dean Forest Railway Society in the 1970's.

The chassis was found to be in a sorry state, this was rectified using a rail bending 'Jim Crow'.

A new rear axle was machined to replace the badly bent original.

A replacement hydraulic pump, cylinder and lifting arms were acquired from the cannibalised the remains of a LD/LDG. The turn table mechanism had been incorporated into a Bridgewater carnival float.

Having been restored and rallied for a couple of years, this truck is now warm and snug in the Dean Forest Railway's Lydney museum.
