British Road Services was, of course, the body set up by the British Transport Commission on the nationalisation of the transport industry by the immediate post-war Labour government to operate long distance road haulage in Britain. Bristol vehicles were built specifically for the nationialised concern to their specification and the HA was the tractor unit which carried various body styles over its production life.

Here on what passed as a trunk road in pre-motorway days a fully loaded unit fights for traction on a steep gradient while fellow drivers are on hand to help as best they can.

A painting like this of your favourite vehicle, British or American, in oils on canvas or board would cost about £2000.

    Bristol designer’s had a knack of making their cabs look very sad. This one is no exception. Very topical landscape too Mike

  • Yes it has a very sad expression but so would you if you couldn’t get a grip!

  • Thank you Laura, you’re very kind but being in my seventies now I don’t relish a job in the high speed world of advertising!

    A topical scene Mike. Agree with Richard, this one does seem to have rather a sad face!

    Great Mike. But I didn’t need reminding of the seriousness of getting around in those days with the diesel freezing up, ropes and sheets stiff as boards etc. in the cold, trying to back into areas and sliding around. – Ted
