6300 was WMPTE's solitary Foden-NC bus. The Foden-NC being the result of a joint development between Foden and Northern Counties, in an attempt by Foden Commercials to break back into the PSV market. However, out of the eight built, only seven of these hybrid vehicles were sold to operators for service, the vehicle’s transmission being one of the major issues with the design.

 

6300 entered service in 1977, working out of Liverpool Street Garage, Birmingham, and was to be mainly seen operating on the 50 service between City and the Maypole. However, it was plagued with transmission failures, and so in December 1982 it was withdrawn ffrom traffic and placed into storage. Eventually, 6300 was sold to Goldsmith's Coaches of Sicklesmere, Suffolk where they used it on local school bus service contracts. However, a further transmission failure in 1985 sealed its fate, and it ended up being parked behind the proprietor’s premises gathering moss, until it was finally rescued for preservation in 2002.

As a modeller, one of the satisfying aspects of fleets like Tilcon is the ability (with a little artistic licence) to depict a wide range of vehicle types, including trucks, buses and even industrial railway locomotives. In terms of trucks there can be none more synonymous with the Tilcon name than the classic Foden eight-wheel tipper.

 

One of the later Fodens, the Haulmaster, has even been immortalised in Tilcon livery by plastic kit manufacturer Keil Kraft, although this image is more in keeping with the era of Dinky Super Toys. It's based on a preserved 'Chinese Six' flatbed with the rear body from the S20 featured next. I can't be certain that Tilcon operated FG tippers but it seems likely, although perhaps not in this livery style.

The reinforced fibreglass ‘Mickey Mouse’ S21 cab was probably Foden’s most distinctive design. Introduced in 1958, it remained in production alongside the later tilt-cab S24 throughout the sixties. This image is based on a truck that, until very recently at least, was still earning its keep as a 'internal user' vehicle with Blokrete Ltd of Lija in Malta (only the livery and lettering have been been changed).

Many Foden models were more commonly known by their cab style than the actual chassis designation, so I'll simply describe this as a 1959 Foden S20 Tipper. A significant portion of Tilcon's vehicle needs were met by private contractors running under Tilcon colours (as is the case with the present day Tarmac company). This Foden carries the sub-identity of Slater's Transport, in whose livery a more recent Foden tractor unit has been preserved. The image is based on a vehicle preserved in a different livery, the owner of which was not happy about what I've done (you can't please everyone).

This fabulous image of a Foden tanker has been lent to me by fellow Flickrite Bernard Rose. It is with Bernard's kind permission that i have been able to post this wonderful picture.
