Nos. 1-3, 5-10 registered in 1921 as shown. Until then they ran unregistered. The bodywork may have been sub-contracted to Roe, although Lockwood & Clarkson are also quoted as builders.

Since 4 of the vehicles were already finished when the RET company went into receivership, it is possible that successors Railless also subcontracted this work out.
