Scania Houghton Parkhouse Livestock Transporter - Ian S Roger The family-run firm of Ian S Roger Ltd is based in Keith, Banffshire. Ian Roger, with his wife Rachel and two sons Graeme and Colin operate a large fleet of varied trucks and trailers. The company won the coveted Scottish Haulage Company of the Year Award in 2015, sponsored by Transport News. Ian‘s interest in livestock haulage was sparked when he used to accompany his father John to the local marts but his interest took on a new dimension on the day in 1960 when the family acquired a 3-ton Austin lorry. Today, the family company run a state of the art fleet, including the four-deck Scania Houghton Parkhouse livestock vehicle which is the subject of our 1:76 scale model. The livestock transporter is decorated in the Ian S Roger signature colour scheme of Rover Sand which dates back to their first ever vehicle. The golden body is mounted on a red chassis and the lettering is also printed in red on both the truck and the trailer. Their Scottish heritage is celebrated with colourful unfurled national and international flags, thistles, Scottish bonnets and lions, all appearing on the front and sides of the truck, alongside the company’s contact details. The transporter is registered R580 NOF and will undoubtedly appeal to our Scottish collectors as well as those specialising in agricultural vehicles generally.
