Not quite sure where he gets the 150 trucks sat doing nothing from. The majority of trucks parked during the week are those that are used by the weekend trampers - around 30. They only get used if neccesary (this time of year it will be necessary). The last time Crick lent trucks to Corby, they came back with panels missing, and insides that resembled a rubbish tip.
Having said that, the yard at Crick always looks full. This could be something to do with the trampers from other depots having their daily rest. 132 one night last week - just wish we could charge them
