Coal lorry


Super nostalgic old lorry Paul, nicely drawn.

Thank you Alan for you comment, much appreciated. I think it’s partly nostalgia that attracts me to these sort of scenes, I’m told it’s because I’m an old man, who cares.

I might have a spare part knocking about for this old girl Great drawing of a great wagon Paul.

Thanks for you kind offer Fiona, I keep it in mind and thank you for the comment. Could you knock up a crankshaft for a Bedford QL when you have the time.

So much character in these old vehicles. I too remember old trucks like this delivering coal.

Thanks Lew. I like the advertising down the side of some of the old lorries. I think the shapes give them character.

A4 pencil drawing. Bedford flatbed coal lorry, one similar used to deliver coal to my grandparents house. I used to love the smell of the coal.
