    I hate to tell you this, but only the first three, and the last in line are Albions. The other Holland Coachcraft bodies in the pictures were mounted on Guy 'Wolf' chassis, including WS 7312. Also that the vehicles in question were supplied when Holland was still based in Glasgow in 1935/6. The Company did not relocate to Gateshead until 1937.

    Does anyone know if any blueprints or styling drawings survive of these beautiful trucks?. Did they have to limit the steering lock to avoid scraping the streamlining around the front wheels? I assume that there are no surviving examples of the real thing, but it would be nice to know the overall dimensions, etc.
