Lacre Depot Sweeper
Lacre Depot Sweeper
Date:1925
Registration:YL 6093
Acquired by the Museum:1976
Current State:Restored to static condition
This vehicle, registered YL 6093, was built in 1925 with Morris Cowley mechanical units and was originally owned by Thomas Tilling Group. It is believed to have been based at Ipswich in its early days before ending up as the Eastern Counties sweeper at their Peterborough Depot.

It was obtained by the Museum in 1976 having been withdrawn from service earlier that year. Restoration work was completed on this vehicle in the early 1980s although it is to static condition only, due to a worn engine.
