Fowler-Welch New Vehicles

Nationwide Chilled and Frozen Haulier Fowler-Welch are taking delivery of a batch of brand new Mercedes Axor 6x2 tractor units.

At least 5 were seen at SB Components in Wisbech this morning, but sadly without registrations.

This comes as a change for the haulier who in recent years have been reliant mostly on the Volvo FH tractor unit, with occasional DAF XF and Scania 'R' series trucks in support.

Also taking a surprise order of Mercedes at the moment is the Stobart Group, with a recent intake of 10 Mercedes Atego Rigid fridge lorries, operated on behalf of Tesco. I saw PE61VNU on my way home from work today. These are mostly to be based out of Goole, but can be seen practically anywhere across the Midlands and Anglia area.

Decker Bus Update II

Yesterday the now infamous Decker Bus Volvo FM12 Wrecker brought up former Veolia Wales Iveco Eurorider/ Plaxton Paragon 76020 - CN53FVY from Newport to Whittlesea

Intended as a direct replacement for elderly Bova Futura TIB4556, it will have a wheelchair lift installed in it, as well as all the other essentials.

Im already looking forward to seeing this vehicle back out on the road.
