Details: The last batch of tower wagons bought by London Transport were 5 AEC Mercurys delivered in 1958, very near the end of the Trolleybus era. All were sold by the mid-1960s except 1077Q, which was kept for other duties requiring elevated access. It was latterly kept in the lorry yard at Chiswick works and was eventually sold in May 1979. This picture was taken at Chiswick during the 1970s and shows the tower structure to advantage. Note also the tow-bar and the generally cut-off appearance of these vehicles. To the left is Ford D500 dropside lorry 1788F, while part of York low-loader semi-trailer YT16 can be seen beyond.
