Kiosk Installation: 'The Early Years'
With the arrival of Kiosk No. 8 in 1968, slight modifications to the current trailers ensured the re-designed kiosk could safely and effectively be loaded, carried and installed. It's also interesting to note that approximately 132 kiosk trailers were produced up until now.

The Trailer kiosk No. 2 is designed to enable both kiosk No. 6 and kiosk No. 8 to be picked up, transported to any desired site and placed upon a prepared concrete base, without damage to the paitwork or structure of the kiosk.
The hydraulically operated mechanism of the trailer enables the kiosk to be picked up and set down in the vertical position and facing in any direction. Having lifted the kiosk, it then moves it to a near horizontal position on the trailer for transportation.
In the travelling position, the kiosk is securely tied to the trailer by two easily tensioned heavy duty straps, and provides a well balanced load which can easily be manhandled by two men when the jockey wheel is down.
