This Stores truck is a Morris FG K40 2 ton capacity sided model.  Fitted with a Tico hydraulic crane and bolsters it would be used for delivery of equipment to works site and was fitted with front and rear bolsters to enable it to carry telegraph poles.  Although dating from 1963, it was still only fitted with semaphore turn indicators, rather than flashing indicators which were becoming far more common in those days.
