Bedford in Town

Zeus Wearn emailed me yesterday to tell me he was in Great Yarmouth last Sunday (4th September) for the the Great Yarmouth Wheels Festival. He observed a Bedford coach which was being used as a free bus service running from the seafront, outside the Britannia Pier, to the Market Place and return.

The vehicle was WLO685 a privately owned and restored Duple Super Vega bodied Bedford SB3, new to Curries of Bexleyheath in 1959. Owned by Sidelines of Long Stratton, it is often used by Spratts of Wrenningham on a number of mystery tours and vintage themed excursions
