EATM Unusual Visitor

Andy Swan sent me a tweet from the East Anglia Transport Museum saying that an unusual visitor had brought a party from Essex to visit the attraction today. It was Lodge's Coaches' MJB 481, a Bedford SBG (now with a diesel-engine) with Duple Vega bodywork.

New to Chiltonia of Chilton Foliot near Hungerford in May 1956, it moved the following year to West Wight Motor Company on the Isle Of Wight

Lodge's, which has restored and preserved a number of old Bedfords, acquired the coach from Abbeyways of Halifax in 1989

My thanks to Andy for the photos of a very fine vehicle.
