D.Sandiford Haulage

As asked for by Antonw sorry they aren't all the ones you was lookin for the one next to the f reg is the x reg. Think the w reg is the one behind the trailer, the t reg was in the shed and used for spares everyone was dreading there gearbox goin because the gearbox out of the t reg was back to front. Here are some photos of D. Sandiford trucks an a couple of trailers. Not forgetting the main dog blakie. Dennis's yard was based in the old Rishton paper mill. Dennis's main work was from ward Knowles printers of Oswaldtwistle and Blackburn and the soap factory at Ramsbottom which the name as escaped me . These photos were taken late 80's. Dennis's brother Brian was based behind westend auto's.

Re: D.Sandiford Haulage


Extremely sorry it's taken me so long to find these.

Thank you so much for taking the time to post them.
My father Tony drove NCK 598X throughout the 80s. I seem to remember someone called Alan (Billy Goat) drove the one with the air kit on it and the 95 was new in about 87.

Really great to see pictures of these trucks again, and crackers (My fathers name for the dog) too

if you've got anymore would be great to see them

Dennis worked with me at Thomas Gilmartins (owned by Gilbraith) in the 60,s. He drove a Leyland Comet with 4 in line trailer. Mostly doing either Blythes work or Rishton paper mill work. Ive a photo of that lorry in my collection.
When we moved into the main Gilbraith haulage yard at Whinney Hill road Dennis started driving a Scammell Highwayman artic.
We all stayed at digs together in Calledonian road London, run by a Scottish lass called Kitty.
Antonw. I knew your father very well and he later drove for Tony Brierly.
When you were born he was living next to me on Hood street.

Folly. did you give the late Peter Davison a copy of those photos. He shared them with me many years ago.
