Condition This Type 17 has the chain at the opposite end of the spline drive to other Type 17s. This shows that it is from the earliest batches and pre works number 473. Wickham moved it so the driver could observe the chain tension, but it also stopped him getting covered in grease! We believe this is the only trolley left with this early chain drive, hence it is probably the oldest Wickham trolley in the UK (if not the world)
Location Private Storage, Leicestershire
