Yesterday's post on Grey Green prompted a response from our regular Ipswich contributor, Jim Long, on his memories of Grey Green in the Suffolk town
'Having looked at your blog ,it jogged the ole brain box on George Ewer. Personally I wasn't a follower until, like all things, they pulled out of coming our way on the Yarmouth to London service via Ipswich. I could kick myself, if i was double jointed, all those superb Leylands & tired ole Bedfords that tried to keep to time as they pulled into St Margaret's Green Ewer depot over the years My loss entirely.
Many thanks for the your recollections and photos Jim
I can tell you that E899 KYW was a manual Volvo B10M based at Grey Green's Stamford Hill depot. I drove it a couple of times and you only need to see how many of those examples are still around to know how good and reliable they were to drive.ReplyDelete
