HISTORY

This coach was new to Bristol Tramways in 1950.  She has Eastern Coachworks body with full front cab, but with the radiator on the outside.  Later revised models had an enclosed radiator behind a new front panel.  She remained with Bristol until withdrawn in 1963.  She then passed to Pearce's of Claverham.  She remained in service with them until 1973, but stayed with the company.  She was sold on in 1988 for preservation, and restoration was begun.  In 2007 the coach was purchased by Mike Walker for the Bristol Omnibus Vehicle Collection.
