-503 and 903 Foden Flat Truck with Tailboard (1947-60)

A first type no. 503 and a second type no. 903 compared below. Also a scan of the box label of the first type Foden Flat Truck with Tailboard, however showing a straight no. 502 Foden Flat Truck as a box label picture. And a very strange anomaly in the catalogue picture of the later no. 903 showing a first type no. 503 in the 1957 US catalogue.

Rob van der Hoort's copy far below, showing a rare short-lived (a few months in 1952 only) example with stanchion bases added for the no. 504 Flat Truck with Chains.  

Kind regards, Jan

Re : -503 and 903 Foden Flat Truck with Tailboard (1947-60)

Jan, a very nice comparison of these different types 503-903 in the same colours. They are in a superb shiny condition. A very nice acquisition and very nice and sharp photos.

Funny to discover those faults in the pictures of the US catalogue and it was not only in the 1957 catalogue. The same faults appeared in the 1955 and 1956 US catalogue. Amazing that they have not noticed and corrected that within 3 years. These were the specific US made catalogues. First in the US general catalogue 1958 appeared again the correct pictures.

On TMT I found a picture of a 1st type 503 with a 1st type brown box also without picture of the tailboard. Very special to possess such combinations. This one has no hook, no tank slots and no chain-post bosses.

Kind regards, Jan Oldenhuis
