Bristol 23 (XRD23K) represents one of Reading's distinctive fleet of "Jumbos". The long wheelbase dual door standee Bristol VRs were designed to shift large loads. The fleet of Northern Counties bodied VRTLL chassis was partnered by a fleet of standee Bristol RELLs with box like bodies built by fringe coachbuilder, Strachan. One can be seen behind 23.
