On this Star Wars Day we look to the past and not the future. Today's Throw Back Thursday subject is the Horn Hill premises of the then Lowestoft based Belle Coaches.
I don't intend to provide a complete history of each coach but the following details are provided:
♦ OYV703R is a Duple bodied Bedford YMT new to World Wide Travel of London in September 1976.
♦ OJI4627 is a Duple Dominant bodied Bedford YNT and I am at present unable to discover its original registration.
♦ E83DRY is Duple bodied Bedford YNV new to Classic Coaches (an associate of Belles Coaches) in August 1987.
♦ NPV309W another Duple bodied Bedford YMT new to Claireaux of Hadleigh in August 1980.
♦ JFA450V is a Plaxton bodied YNT new to Smallwood of Stoke in October 1979.
♦ YYL795T is a former Grey Green Duple bodied Bedford YLQ - new in May 1979.
♦ EGV719T is a third Bedford YMT with a Plaxton body new to Classic Coaches in March 1979.
The operator, also based at Leiston, has recently taken delivery of a brand new 53 seat Scania for its Just Go franchise.
