Dyson Lorries

Dyson lorries are recovery lorries owned by J. Dyson and Co.. It is usually accompanied with a flatbed, low loader or mobile crane.

Dyson lorries are used to help whenever there is an accident where the rails can't reach. They are also used for carrying rolling stock and engines. One was once used to carry Duke to the Skarloey Railway.


Dyson lorries resemble AEC Hanson lorries or Foden lorries which were once a common sight around railway yards. The ERTL model of the Dyson lorry inaccurately represents a Ford pick-up lorry.
