Scania 141

Another very smart looking truck (ahead of its time) from T Brady & sons of Barrow. A proper V8, that was used primarily to haul oversize loads.
This trailer was an early self steer, with the trailer bogie sitting under a turntable.

Great pictures Harry, and a great shame that a company like Brady's are no longer trading, they always ran a smart fleet.I loved the sound of that V8 throbbing along (and passing everything else) and consider myself lucky to have driven one, Do you know what the "S" on the grille after the 141 stood for? or was this added by the driver
nice bit of roping and sheeting on the steering bogie trailer too, those were the days

I have just spoken to the driver, and he tells me that the 'S' at the end of the badge signifies that it was a ' special' and was constructed for heavy haulage work. The extra 'S' was put on by Scania.

The S was added by Peter Clarke as a gimmick, it was a standard 141.
