I arrived at work one morning to find Cleveland Transit Northern Counties bodied Daimler Fleetline L470 FXG870E parked outside my office door having been towed in overnight following a breakdown.
I don't know whether it was on its way to or from Cleveland Transit but had just been reversed in to this position courtesy of the forklift truck just visible on the front of the tow bar. It remained in this position for a few days before vanishing overnight. I never did get a look under the engine cover to see what was installed there. And just in case anyone wonders why the tow bar has wheels, it allowed it to be dragged around by the forklift and hooked on and off by one man otherwise it was a two man job to lift it on to the truck (which it didn't really fit on anyway)
