ECW FC35F

NHY 947 is an ECW ‘Queen Mary’ coach body with the sort of chassis one might expect underneath – not the AEC Regal rebuild in Tilling livery submitted a while ago! This Bristol LWL6B was new in 1951, with ECW FC35F body. We see it on Southampton Common on the sunny morning of 7 May 1979, while taking part in the Southampton City Transport Centenary rally.

The only batch of these bodies sold to a Scottish operator were on Daimler chassis.

Very nice, Les! Thank you for posting. I particularly like the shape of the ‘valance’ forward of the door.

PFR 727 is a Karrier BF3023 with Plaxton C14F body. It dates from 1959 and follows the usual Abbott’s habit for having registrations ending in 7. One has to wonder how they would have coped with the present system! It is in Southampton Docks, not the most appealing environment, on 29 April 1990. This was one of the rare occasions that the British Coach Rally was held somewhere other than Brighton.

PFR 727 survives in preservation with Leach of Telford.
