1942 Delivery Vehicles at Cricklewood Dave Fane comments "Of the 3 vehicles, 293 and 594 were new in 1936, 605 was new in 1940. 293 was sold or scrapped in 1946, 605 was sold or scrapped in 1947, so I would guess this is about 1942"

1931 Express Rail Tank. Matthew Pinto comments "One of the very first 6-wheeled milk tanks built by the London, Midland and Scottish Railway for Express Dairies (earlier rail tanks were 4-wheeled and rode very roughly at high speeds). It is shown here at Cricklewood depot. Note the semi-cylindrical sunshade. These were common on early tanks but their effectiveness was questionable and the feature was eventually abandoned."

1950's Cricklewood Bottling Line.  Philip Boyd comments "There were 10 Alka fillers, replaced with 4 UDEC. There were also five bottle washers, replaced with two. This is how it was when I joined in 1957. You can see 10 temperature recorders and there were no recraters-these were developed later by engineer Mr Frank George. Cricklewood also had a second bottling hall with two fillers and one bottle washer, for bottling gold top (CI) milk." (Still from Steve Wheeler Milk Bottle Museum film)

There are seven other Barnet twinnings, but I know they're also twinned with Barnet in Vermont, so eight twinnings really + Temelhof.
