Reynolds Retirement Auction

Malcolm Harrison's website advertisement
Tomorrow sees the end of an era with the Reynolds Coaches Retirement Auction being held at the company's Ormesby Road premises in Caister on Sea.

Reynolds was Norfolk's oldest coach operator which closed at the end of July after more than 100 years in business.

Owner Charles Reynolds has taken the decision to cease trading following ill health and has no successor to take it over. 

Reynolds Coaches employed a staff of 24 looking after its coach fleet all named after family members or specially nominated VIPs. 
Coaches available for auction

Shropshire based auctioneer Malcolm Harrison is handling the sale of all assets including the current coach fleet

No doubt many will be eagerly sought following Reynolds' surrender of fourteen Norfolk County Council school contracts at the end of the last educational year. The operator has been ferrying children to and from schools for decades

With the help of Colin White, of the Eastern Transport Collection, a list of all the twenty coaches operated by Reynolds at closure can viewed in the Fleet Lists section of our blog.

It seems inconceivable that the sight of a Reynolds coach in its distinctive livery will no longer be seen on the streets in the Great Yarmouth area.
