Self Preservation Society

London to Brighton
Commercial Vehicle Run

2/5/10

We got wet. Very wet. Not much else to say, really.

RF433 at Crystal Palace
The Deputy Mayor is braving the weather and doing his duty walking around the vehicles at the start at Crystal Palace - he just popped his nose in RF 433 and commented that the smell hasn't changed!

This interesting REO GE coach belongs to John Golding on the Isle of Wight, one and the same as sold us our Southern Vectis Dennis Lancet.

Lorries at Brighton
The run isn't all buses, of course, in fact they are very much in the minority against the wide range of lorries always present. This is just a selection of those present.

Lorries at Brighton
This Burlingham bodied Scotts Grey coach caught my eye - it is actually on an AEC Regal IV chassis, almost identical to that of the RF type. Behind it is a Leyland Royal Tiger coach once with Bluebird Coaches of Hull, with an interesting centre-entrance body.
