Leyland TL GLW422 at the Tyne Tees Rally 1983.

Here's another view of GLW, this time at the Gypsy Green Stadium in South Shields Tyne and Wear. From this side, you can easily see it's origins as a PSV Chassis.I havn't seen this for a few years now, some information would be welcome.

Hi Chris, i now own GLW 422 and it is undergoing restoration as it had stood for many years, nothing major just a good polish and service. I have posted a pic on here, Do you have any other photos?

Hi James, glad to hear of it's survival. There are three of my pictures of this machine on this site, I have a couple more of it waiting to be digitalised. I don't remember seeing it after 1985.

There is a some nice footage on the British Pathe site from the NFS days of GLW415 at the Docklands Fire Station. If you go to the site and search for A CLASROOM FILM - THE FIREMAN you should find it. Alo shows a couple of other appliances believe its the same station where Londons Burning was filmed.
