[Tiny Float GIF]Archive Fleetlists[Tiny Float GIF]

This page contains approximate fleetlists for certain dairies/depots at points in time. All fleetlists from elsewhere on the site have been moved here as they are probably no longer current.

Eventually I would like to attempt to build a database of all current and former floats of all operators, for which any additional contributions are very welcome.

All of the lists on this page are based solely on observations, either mine or those of other enthusiasts. They are not official lists.

Co-op, Didcot - December 1978

Thanks to Dave Harrison for the following information.

In December 1978, the fleet allocated to the Didcot distribution depot consisted of:

21 GFC
557 BWL
558 BWL
967 FFC

968 FFC was also a regular visitor, along with 22 GFC which covered for maintainance swaps. Often the serviced floats would be driven to Didcot under their own steam, the charge just enough to cover the journey.

Logos: "Old" is turquoise box with white "co op" inside, with "CENTRAL MIDLANDS" in black above, and diagonal turquoise stripes. "New" is blue "co op" logo with blue underscore and "Midlands" below also in blue. B121 TBW has the new logo applied over the old.
