Karrier 106
Karrier 106

This Karrier tow wagon entered service with Stockport Corporation in 1926 and was withdrawn in 1970. Karrier Motors, before becoming part of the Rootes group, were based in Huddersfield. YM 9410 was bought by Stockport as a petrol tanker from Shell and converted for use as tow wagon. It has no front brakes, the rear brakes are quite weak and the clutch is either "in" or "out" so the vehicles rarely leaves the Greater Manchester Museum of Transport.
Museum of Transport, Greater Manchester
Greater Manchester's Museum of Transport is based at Boyle Street, in one of Manchester's earliest bus garages, adjoining the first tram depot at Queens Road (both are Grade II listed buildings). The museum has been established there since 1979.

The Museum of Transport has one of the largest collections of its kind in the country. It is run by volunteers of the Greater Manchester Transport Society (GMTS) but the Museum is owned by Transport for Greater Manchester (formerly Greater Manchester Passenger Transport Executive).

The core of the collection represents the wide variety of fleets absorbed into the Passenger Transport Executive from 1969 onwards. These include the municipal fleets from Ashton, Bolton, Bury, Leigh, Manchester, Oldham, Ramsbottom, Rochdale, SHMD, Salford, Stockport and Wigan (1974) as well as part of North Western (1972) and Lancashire United Transport(1981).
