Description The highly decorative and colourful livery of former North Eastern company Gallacher Bros (Haulage) Ltd adorns the third release on the modern Scania 113 Curtainside. Set up in 1978, the company worked out of Stanley, Co. Durham, just off the A1, where its lorries were a familiar sight until the firm was dissolved at the end of 2009.
The lorry is registered N98 PJR and carries some interesting features. The cab has a pale blue body and roof but notice the faded blue gradient on the sides of the rear body sides and spoiler. The roof also has a single orange roof beacon fixed in the centre above the cab. On a darker blue chassis and with a dark blue band running along the centre of the cab doors and front, the cab front also displays the name of the truck ‘Blue Horizon’ printed in blue on a cream ‘riband’ background. Extensive printing to the cab doors gives the name and contact details of the company and their name also features on the spoiler. The trailer has dark blue sides, a silver roof and a pale blue back, printed with Gallacher Bros details in contrasting colour on the sides and rear.
For truck collectors from the north-east of England especially, this model will be a nostalgic reminder of an established and well-known company that is no more.
