They like their Commer/Karrier did Hindley Council. This could be a two stroke engine. Not ideal for coal bagging.

Derrick 2 strokes are petrol engines.
As Gary said, not suitable for coal.

The Commer TS3 was a diesel engine. Foden built a 2 stroke diesel for many years. The Deltic,which I worked on in my time at the Vulcan,had a Napier 2 stroke diesel.

Alan, The Commer TS3 was a Flat Diesel engine Unique and with a distinctive sound Nicknamed as the " Commer Knocker" by some. Widely used in both wagons and coaches

I once owned a Wartburg Knight 353w, the car engine was a 993cc two stroke petrol.

Some Commer lorries were fitted with the Rootes Group TS3
2-Stroke diesel engine,3 cylinders with 2 horizontally
opposed pistons in each cylinder. Foden Motors at Sandbach
also fitted some lorries with a 2-Stroke engine.
