Scammell Scarab

This is one of the vehicles entered in the 1996 Trans Lancs Historic Vehicle Rally organised by the Greater Manchester Transport Society and which took place in September of that year. The photograph was taken at Heaton Park, Manchester.
It's a 1961 Scammell Scarab, a tractor unit which was designed to facilitate the delivery of goods in busy built-up areas. Because of their manoeuvrability they were used extensively by British Railways and I remember seeing the one used at the local railway station when I was a youngster. The programme of the event shows the entrant as J.L. & B.Nuttall of Dyserth, Denbighshire
