Hi Stitcher,I am too young to have driven for Overland but in the middle to late sixties I knocked around Acocks Green with Alan Ragg. I believe his Dad worked for Overland as a manager or foreman,we didn't see a great deal of him.Occasionally a truck would be parked outside his house. Alan had an older brother called Brian he was about 15 but worked in the yard shunting units around. Was any of this around the time you worked there?Hello Chainmaker, the name sounds familiar but it was all a long time ago now. It would almost certainly have been a Comet or Mandator. The thing about Overland was that because of the nature of the loads, we never did much transhipping or working together. Normally as you said about five stacker trucks or one big machine was the full load and most of us took the wagon home for an early start so did not see much of each other.
