Hi Bryan,just found this thread.I remember Ross Garages,their main depot was in Cardiff and I recall them using Atkis,AEC MK5s and - I think - Scania 110s or 111s.When I worked for A E Evans tankers I picked one of their night trunk drivers up early one morning,somewhere between Ross and Monmouth.He'd run out of time and dumped his artic (I'm sure it was a Scania) in a lay-by.I didn't realise Humber McVeigh bought them out.

This picture of a Ross AEC MK5 Mandator DKG 483C,might bring some memories back.....

PS I always thought they were on Barrow Road.

I remember a lot of old Sheffield hauliers,I worked for C H Preston,Naylor and Wagstaffe,A.E.Evans and then 27 years for GGD/Wincanton at Maltby.
