Seddon Atkinson 3-11 Series

In October 1986 the Seddon Atkinson 301 Series became the 3-11 Series which incorporated cab improvements and some engine changes.


By the following March the charge-cooled version of the Cummins LTA10-290 engine was made available as the alternative to the older LT10-25.


Riding's introduced a number 3-11 4x2 tractor unit's into their fleet which were all at first powered by the Cummins LT10 and later the Cummins LTA10 engine.

Driven by Alan Margerison he had transported the steel plates from the British Steel Works at Motherwell to Tees Dock which was regular traffic for Riding's in those days.


Reg No E352 WLG was originally new to Weatherhall Green & Son Ltd of Leeds in September 1987 and was purchased second hand off local dealer Syd Hartley on the 20th of September 1990  at a cost of £6,100 plus vat.


After being in the fleet for just under two and a half years it was sold on to Northwest Truck Centre at Unit 6 Dobson Park Wigan on the 20th of January 1993, along with Seddon Atkinson 301 Reg No C150 BKP, for the sum of £3,750 pus vat for the pair.
