UEE 301J Atkinson Borderer T3246XB

One of five similar Borderers operated by R & N Wright of Hoole, on traction work for Pandoro. EE is a Grimsby reg, I think, but I don't know who had it new.

 

This one is seen in Pandoro's compound at Dock Street, Fleetwood, c.1978, with the one-off sided trailer, PD30ST8071 next to it: a trailer built specially for traffic for Shell Bitumen at Saltney.

 

Behind the 40' van in the background can be seen Pandoro's new, purpose-built office block, astonishingly demolished several years ago.

 

Bob and Nick Wright subbed for Pandoro for many years, and later ran a fleet of pale grey Mercedes tractors from a yard at Holme Road, Bamber Bridge, next door to Bowker. They finished in the late 1990s
