Weeting Traction Engine Rally

Regular contributor Tim Major visited the Weeting Traction Engine Rally yesterday and came across Bedford WHB TM 9347. It was tucked away at the end of a row of vehicles and was the only passenger carrying vehicle at the rally that he could see.

The 1931 built vehicle has a 14 seat Waveney body and was used as a demonstrator by the Arlington Motor Company and was restored by the company in the 1970's subsequently passing to Vauxhall Heritage.

Following a review, the bus was sold at auction in 2020. Its first operator is believed to have been Woodhams of Melchbourne in Bedfordshire.

Thanks for the information and photo Tim
