That's a hotspot for sightings; I see one everytime I drive up the M42 on a Friday afternoon.

Sorry about this resurrection, but, rather ironically I saw my first Stobart RL truck today on the M62 coming back from Manchester.

It was the Bulls one, looked rather impressive.

Then, as you might expect, like buses I saw another one. The Hull FC one!!!! Yippeee!

Anyway, it was exciting for me....as you were. :wacko::(

:lol::D:lol:

I saw the Hull KR one on Saturday

I dunno if the link is buried in here for which firm did it. But it did feel like I'd collected a rare faulty coin or something!

edit: Boococks.

(and that's not a way around the swear filter...)

Presumably Stobarts won't rush out and rebrand all their $uperleague trailers at pointless cost so I dare say sightings will continue for some time yet.

The Stobart TV programme said it cost £4k do brand each vehicle, so I reckon you'd be right

Glad this post has resurfaced.

I finally saw my first one today, on the A638 near South Elmsall. Widnes livery.

Just spotted a truck on a round-a-bout on the A78 when coming to work, only got a glimpse of it as I was turning off but the rear doors of the trailer were advertising the Magic Weekend, not sure if it was for last year or this but assuming it's for this year I would have thought this was better advertising for us i.e. advertising an event that people can buy tickets for rather than the game in general. Would be good to see the Challenge Cup Final, Grand Final and World Cup advertised this way

Don't complain, we're still getting the advertising and don't even have to have a main sponsor!

Yeah, maybe we should be fair and still call it the Stobart SL for a couple of years, whilst sort of, slowly but surely, fading out the printed name over time?

I saw the Widnes one on the A19 just south of Middlesbrough on Sunday, and the Leeds one has just gone past the office here in Newton Aycliffe. They're still out there.
