Cruising around face book in the rain in Quinslund, and not knowing where to post these, I tried here...A bit special in her day I guess, bogie drive twin steer and I think an ERF.....Which leads me to ask did ERF stand for Eric Robert Foden, and was there some relationship with the Foden Trucks or have I got that base over apex?

Hello Sarge,

Greetings. I don't know how to make the Foden pages bigger. From what I can gather there is a connection to E R F but I can't be certain. Pete

They was borthers and Foden wanted to keep making steam lorries and Eric ???? wanted to use the new fangled internal combustion jobbie

Pretty sure the story went along those lines, Foden didn't start with these two, these two were a generation or two into the Foden story
