ERF

Tom Riding recalls below why the company decided to introduce the first ERF tractor units into their fleet in October 1988.....


"As a company we were obsessed with unladen weight as almost all our traffic was to the max gross vehicle weight.


 Due to Seddon Atkinson not fitting the Cummins L10 325 engine to their vehicles in 1988, whereas ERF did, we switched from Seddon Atkinson and gave ERF an order for nineteen 4x2 tractor units which was the biggest we had ever placed.


However we subsequently stopped using the Cummins L10 engine and all future orders in my tenure were for the Perkins 335TX and this proved to be a great engine.


The first two ERF tractor units in the fleet were Reg No F540 THG Fleet No 102 'Skiddaw' and Reg No F810 TCK Fleet No 103 'Cross Fell' both E10 Series day cabbed units based at our Thornaby depot on Teesside..


 These were built specifically to achieve an unladen weight of six tons fully fueled up with the driver included".


The very first ERF 4x2 tractor unit to enter service with W & J Riding was Reg No F540 THG Fleet No 102 'Skiddaw' an ERF E10 powered by a Cummins L10 325 engine.


Brand new on the 1st of October 1988 it was based at Riding's Thornaby depot on Teesside where it is pictured fueling up while coupled up to a tri-axle Carmichael bulk powder tanker trailer. 


Tom Riding continues below....


 "The tanker trailers were built by Carmichael of Worcester and weighted fractionally under 5 tons.


This gave us an incredible payload of 27 tons which was the main reason we got the job of moving terephthalic acid  powder from ICI WIlton to Eastman Kodak at Workington.


 Four tractor units and eight tankers were used on the job with each loaded tanker dropped on a tipping ramp and tipped by gravity.


Under normal circumstances we did a load every 3 hours which amounted to a total of 56 loads a week.


Unfortunately, to my knowledge, no photographs exist of this operation because cameras were not allowed on site at that time".


The second ERF E10 4x2 tractor unit to enter service with Riding's on the 1st of October 1988 was Reg No F810 TCK Fleet No 103 'Cross Fell' which was also powered by a Cummins L10 325 engine.


Based at Riding's Thornaby depot on Teesside it is pictured here on the A59 Skipton by-pass in North Yorkshire while hauling a Carmichael tri-axle powder tanker in ICI Petrochemicals livery.

 This time, rather than hauling a powder tanker, it is seen here on general haulage work while hauling a forty foot tri-axle flat trailer with a full load of empty pallets on board.

ERF E10 4x2 tractor unit Reg No F250 XFV Fleet No 48 'Swiftsure' was registered new on the 10th of February 1989.


 Powered by a Cummins L10 325 engine it was double shifted, driven on days by Jimmy Taylor and on nights by Alan Dixon.


 It is seen here coupled to a tandem axle curtain-sider trailer in the contact livery of Timax exhaust systems which Riding's operated out of the Timax factory at Squires Gate Blackpool and Glasson Dock near Lancaster.


Seen here while loading up at the Timax Bainbridge depot at Glasson Dock in November 1992 is another shot of ERF E10 4x2 tractor unit Reg No F250 XFV Fleet No 48 'Swiftsure'.


 Coupled to a tri-axle step frame trailer this particular tractor unit was double shifted, driven on days by Jimmy Taylor and on nights by Alan Dixon.

ERF E10 4x2 tractor unit Reg No F260 XRN Fleet No 105 'Ingleborough', powered by a Cummins L10 325 engine, was registered new on the 10th of February 1989.


Driven from new by Vinnie Chambers it is seen here towards the end of its working life with Riding's in June 1997 travelling down the A6 approaching Broughton traffic lights.

Previously F260 XRN had suffered an electrical problem causing it to burst in to flames in June 1991 resulting in the cab being totally burnt out. >


It was later fitted with a new cab and remained in service with Riding's for another six years until 1997.


More detailed information regarding the fire can be found in the Accidents Happen (3) gallery.



ERF E10 Series 4x2 tractor unit Reg No F270 YBV Fleet No 20 'Royal Sovereign' was registered new on the 1st of March 1989 at a cost of £29,588 + vat.


Powered by a Cummins L10 290 engine, and driven from new by the late Ted Woods, this was the first tractor unit to be assigned to the EVC contract.


Painted in the grey and white contract livery of European Vinyl's Corporation Ltd it is pictured here while coupled to a Riding's liveried Carmichael 2000 cubic foot tipping powder tanker.


After nine years service with Riding's F270 YBV was sold on the 19th of March 1998 to D.G. Taylor of Driffield in East Yorkshire.

ERF E10 4x2 tractor unit Reg No F550 ABV Fleet No 35 'Pen-Y-Ghent' had quite an eventful life while at Riding's.


 Powered by a Cummins L10 325 engine it was registered new on the 1st of March 1989 at a cost of £29,313 plus vat and originally came from the ERF factory fitted with a day cab as can be seen in the picture above.


Seen here parked at Penrith, where it was out-based, it was used on a night and day operation being used for a time on the bulk lime job working round the clock between Ravenscraig steel works and the Shap lime works.


On one particular journey, at the time the M74 roadwork's were in progress, the driver unfortunately got the front near side wheel off the road resulting in the whole outfit turning over on to its side.


 The tanker was loaded with 25 tons of GBL which had to be pumped out before it could be recovered.


The Crane Fruehauf power tanker was quite old at the time and a decision was made that it should be scrapped. 


F550 ABV suffered severe damage to it's cab in the accident and due to the steelworks being on the point of closure at that time it was decided that it would be more useful when repaired if it was fitted with a full sleeper cab.


 This is actually what happened and when F550 ABV was put back on the road it was allocated to the general haulage fleet as can be seen in the two pictures below. v


Originally new to W & J Riding on the 1st of March 1989 ERF E10 4x2 tractor unit Reg No F550 ABV Fleet No 35 'Pen-Y-Ghent' came supplied with a factory fitted day cab at a cost of  £29,313 plus vat.

 

 After suffering severe accident damage it was fitted with a full sleeper cab as can be seen in this picture above.


After 11 years service with Riding's F550 ABV was sold on the 19th of March 1998 to D & G Commercials of Driffield East Yorkshire for an unknown amount.

Another shot of ERF E10 4x2 tractor unit Reg No F550 ABV Fleet No 35 'Pen-Y-Ghent' pictured after receiving a new sleeper cab.


 Seen here parked in Penrith it is coupled up to a brand new Metalair-Fiilliat tri-axle 25 ton payload cement tanker.


This was one of a number in the fleet which were used to transport cement from the Castle Cement works at Clitheroe in Lancashire up to Coatbridge in Scotland.


ERF E10 Series 4x2 tractor unit Reg No F290 YRN Fleet No 49 'Whernside' was a day cabbed ERF powered by a L10 325 Cummins engine.


Registered new on the 1st of March 1989 at a cost of £30,056 plus vat it was used on a twenty four hour basis, driven on days by Fred Stannard and on nights by Peter Fallowfield.


Normally running between Motherwell -Penrith -Longridge-and Teesside on general haulage it is pictured here in the depot at Longridge with a full load of GKN pallets destined for H J Heinz Co Ltd at Kitt Green near Wigan.


After eight years service with Riding's F290 YRN was eventually sold to D.G. Taylor Commercial Vehicles on the 19th of March 1997 for an unknown amount.

Day cabbed ERF E10 4x2 tractor unit Reg No F720 CBV Fleet No 39 'Lord President' was powered by a Cummins L10 325 engine and registered new by Riding's on the 1st of May 1989 at a cost of £29,003 plus vat.


This was one of several tractor unit's bought specifically for the Wilton-Workington traffic and as such was out based at Riding's Thornaby Teesside depot.


F720 CBV is shown here earning its keep while hauling a Carmichael bulk powder tanker trailer.


Tom Riding recalls below......


 "These tri-axle tanker trailers were built by Carmichael of Worcester and weighted fractionally at just under 5 tons.


This gave us an incredible payload of 27 tons which was the main reason we got the job of moving terephthalic acid powder from the ICI plant WIlton on Teesside to Eastman Kodak at Workington".


Lorry photographer the late Michael Deuchars cajoled the yard men at Longridge depot into setting out these five ERF E10 4X2 tractor units in the form of a letter E, presumably a publicity shot for ERF.


All identical specification they are from left to right......

'E' Series ERF 4x2 tractor unit Reg No G770 HHG Fleet No 3 'Snowdon' was powered by a Cummins L10 325 engine.


 Registered new by Riding's on the 1st of September 1989, at a cost of £31,636 plus vat, it was immediately allocated to the EVC contract and driven from new by long serving Riding's driver Ken Moon.


It is pictured hooked up to a tri-axle Carmichael tipping tank which was used to deliver Corvic powder paste to Nairn's of Kirkcaldy.


 This product was sticky and the tipping gear on this particular tank had an additional ram section built in which enabled it to tip at a very steep angle.


 After being in service for just over eight years G770 HHG was eventually sold on to D. G. Taylor Commercial Vehicles on the 19th of March 1998, three years after Tom Riding had retired from the company.

Fitted with a Cummins 325 L10 engine it was originally assigned to the general haulage fleet and driven by Geoff Hunt.

 In later life it was fitted with blowing equipment and almost permanently coupled to a Crane Fruehauf 1450 cubic foot non tipping tank used for the movement of bulk cement from Clitheroe to Meldreth in Cambridgeshire.

 After nine years service with Riding's it was sold on to a dealer in Liverpool in January 1998 for £2,000 plus vat.

Three brand new 'E' Series ERF E12TX Perkins engined 4X2 chassis cabs are seen here after delivery direct from the ERF factory at Sandbach to Riding's Longridge depot.


 These were part of the largest order ever placed by the company and are pictured here on the 31st of October 1992 shortly before having their 5th wheel coupling assembly, mudguards and rear lights fitted in W & J Riding's own workshops.


 Tom Riding recalls..

.

"I always thought that any new vehicle joining our fleet was lucky i.e. it would be worked hard but maintained to a very high standard also i find it difficult to accept that the ERF company is no longer with us".


Contrast in styles and age yet both these tractor units had the same engine and drive-line.


On the left 'E' Series ERF 4x2 tractor unit Reg No K930 AEC Fleet No 86 'Sir Barnaby' was registered new on the 1st of February 1993 and was asigned to Riding's EVC contract.

'E' Series ERF 4x2 tractor unit Reg No K620 VHG Fleet No 30 'Patriot' was registered new on the 17th of February 1993.


Powered by a Perkins E12TX 325 engine this was one of many brand new ERF tractor unit's introduced into the fleet in 1993.


 Penrith based it is seen here after dropping into Longridge depot with 24 tons of steel plate from Motherwell prior to changing it's trailer with one loaded  with 24 tons of Castle cement for it's return trip up to Coatbridge Scotland

After the retirement of Tom Riding in October 1995 TDG immediately set to work and re-branded the fleet in their own 'Transport Development Group' livery.


Within a few weeks K620 VHG had  lost all it's Riding identity after it was given this scarab green TDG Nexus livery. 


Another shot of 'E' Series ERF 4x2 tractor unit Reg No K620 VHG Fleet No 30 'Patriot' seen here coupled up to one of Riding's tri-axle cement tankers. 


Powered by a Perkins E12TX 325 engine it is pictured parked up at Penrith in Cumbria where it was out-based, along with four other W & J Riding's tractor unit's, for use on Scottish trunk change over's.


ERF EC10 4X2 tractor unit Reg No K160 YCK Fleet No 90 'Cock o' the North' was powered by a Cummins L10 325 engine.


This particular ERF tractor unit was in the very first batch of the EC series produced at Sandbach in May 1993 and was used as one of the launch vehicles on the 11th of June 1993.


Managing director Tom Riding continues....


 "ERF painted and lettered it up at their factory but, as you can see, it was not to our style so it was re-branded at Longridge a few months after joining the fleet.


 It is pictured at the TIMAX distribution centre at Squires Gate Blackpool where it spent most of its working life running double shifts.


Paul Smith did Peterborough on days and Reg Cookson did Bristol on nights, between them clocking up around 4000 miles every week".


Another shot ERF EC10 4X2 tractor unit Reg No K160 YCK Fleet No 90 'Cock o' the North'.


Powered by a Cummins L10 325 engine it is seen here in Longridge depot on the 29th of August 1993, when three months old, coupled up to a 40 foot tandem axle curtain-sider trailer in Timax contract livery.


When new ERF had painted and lettered it up at their factory but, as you can see, it was not to Riding's style so it was re-branded a few months after joining the fleet as can be seen in the picture below. v

ERF EC10 4X2 tractor unit Reg No K160 YCK Fleet No 90 'Cock o' the North',powered by a Cummins L10 325 engine, was in the very first batch of EC series tractor units produced by ERF at Sandbach in May 1993.


 Originally it came painted and lettered by ERF direct from their factory but unfortunately it was not to Riding's style.


It is seen here at Longridge in its revised livery with the famous ' The Best In The Long Run' banner across the front.

Occasionally W & J Riding would be allocated a new vehicle on demonstration from the manufactures for fleet evaluation.


 In this case it is ERF EC10 4x2 tractor unit Reg No K533 XVU which was registered new by ERF on the 1st of May 1993.


 Pictured here at the Timax/Bainbridge plant at Glasson Dock near Lancaster in September 1993 it is coupled up to one of Riding's contract livered forty foot step frame curtain-sider trailers.


 The logo on the front of the tractor unit says 'Driving the future'' which was quite ironic really as within nine years of this picture being taken ERF lorry production at Sandbach would be no more than a just memory.

ERF EC12 4X2 tractor unit Reg No L360 DCW Fleet No 92 'Sir Perivale' was registered new on the 6th of September 1993 at a cost of £37,295 plus vat.


 Powered by a Perkins 335 TX engine this particular tractor unit was allocated to the Timax contract and led a busy life double shifted by two of Riding's long serving drivers.


On days it was driven by Paul Smith who did a Blackpool - Peterborough trailer changeover while on nights it was driven by Reg Cookson who did a Bristol and back trailer changeover.


Another shot of ERF EC12 4X2 tractor unit Reg No L360 DCW Fleet No 92 'Sir Perivale' this time seen here heading down the motorway hauling an unusual stepframe trailer.


Tom Riding continues below.....


 "Timax sometimes had a problem collecting their own products from a site if the customer ceased trading or whatever.


They had a requirement to be able to carry a fork lift truck on a normal taut-liner to enable the driver to load himself if the need arose.


R.J. & I Wells modified this particular step frame trailer to be able to do this in such a way that a section of chassis was carved away in front of the step and suitably strengthened and pull out ramps fitted.


This enabled a fork truck to climb on board and providing the driver was suitably qualified the system worked a treat.

.

 Result, a highly satisfied customer".


ERF EC12 4X2 tractor unit Reg No L370 MEO Fleet No 25 'Great Western' was powered by a Perkins E12 TX325 engine and was registered new on the 1st of December 1993.
