To quote the company's website: "Founded in 1983, Abnormal Load Engineering (ALE) is now one of the world’s leading international heavy transport and installation contractors with a global network of operating centres and a large fleet of heavy cranes, specialist transport and installation equipment". It certainly operates some impressive equipment, including huge German-built Faun heavy haulage tractors. Of more modest proportions, this fictional Mercedes Actros is portrayed hauling a wind turbine tower section. Thanks to Martin Vonk for the base image (20-May-18).

The 15-cwt Bedford MW was the most common World War II British military vehicle in its class, with just under 66,000 examples built. Used in a variety of roles by all three armed services, its impressive power-to-weight ratio gave it a sprightly performance. Many thousands saw further post-war use with civilian users, often with new steel cabs replacing the canvas-topped originals. Adams & Gibbon of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne was a major Vauxhall-Bedford dealer and, whilst this Bedford MW is fictional, the company operated many Bedford service vehicles over the years (08-Feb-20).

Like most commercial vehicle builders, the Associated Engineering Company (AEC) used its own products for the collection of components from suppliers and delivery of spares to its service network. This AEC Mercury is loosely based on a Base Toys model of the same vehicle; a fictional Mammoth Major MkV will follow shortly. In both cases, the promotional value of the eye-catching yellow livery was not missed. Thanks again to Kurt Cauchi and his father for the photo opportunity on the premises of Damjan Transport at Xewkija on the island of Gozo (11-Jan-19)

This second fictional example of the AEC Works Transport fleet is loosely based on a preserved vehicle, albeit the latter has a flatbed body with beaver tail. It is also the tenth livery to be featured on the preserved Maltese MkV; I normally aim for up to six versions so this image has served me particularly well (19-Jan-19).

I’ve labelled this as an AEC Mercury but suspect that it may not be (clarification welcome). Had it not been in AEC Works colours, I would have thought a re-cabbed AEC Matador more likely. AEC operated a large fleet of service vehicles from its Southall Works in West London, all smartly presented in the company’s distinctive yellow livery. Thanks to Graham Newell for the original monochrome image (17-Apr-20).
