HCVS Charabanc Trip 2011

HCVS Charabanc Trip 2011

In late August 35 members of Historic Commercial Vehicle Society Yorkshire set off on a mystery tour to visit private collections of 3 HCVS members. This was organised by Peter Seaword who drove the charabanc. I keep using the word ’charabanc' as it has been deleted from the new issue of the Oxford English Dictionary apparently due to lack of usage!

Thank you for that excellent set of pictures and how good to know that so many early vehicles are safely preserved. Thank goodness for all the skilled enthusiasts who are around to save them!

My lack of geographical knowledge has been exposed. When researching JP 7538 I discovered the vehicle was new to Liptrot of Platt Bridge, which is also described as Bamfurlong. I looked on Google and saw an entry for Bamfurlong was in Gloucestershire hence my incorect data. It is in fact near Wigan in Lancashire, hence JP 7538 which is a Wigan registration number. I will ask Peter to change the caption on the photograph.
