#TBT ~ Lodekka 559BPW

Featured in today's Throw Back Thursday is an Eastern Counties Bristol Lodekka FLB6B with Eastern Coach Works H70R body configuration

559BPW was new to 'Counties' in January 1963 as their LFL59 and is pictured at Castle Meadow, Norwich in the late 1970's/ early 1980s. It lasted in service until 1981 when it was disposed of to Bygone Bristol Club of Elmers End.

However, it has been recorded by Rob Sly as later being driven through Africa by five Danes writing articles and making television programs for the youth market on African life. It was observed in Cape Town during January 1993 with a later sighting reported in Zimbabwe in April of that year.
