We’ve moved a long dormant Solo this week at our storage compound and discovered some equally long buried stuff. The Wadham Stringer Dart is someone’s long term project, but the owner of the ex East Yorkshire VR went to ground about 2 years ago. We now consider it to have been abandoned and will have to dispose of it unfortunately.
30 Years ago today saw the closure of Berresfords Motors,Cheddleton.Well know for the wide variety of buses operated and the field full of withdrawn and cannibaslised stock here are some photos as a tribute to the operator and Jim Berresford,the man who did more to kindle and encourage my interest in buses than anyone else…he even persuaded my parents to allow me to abandon my Sixth Form education to go and work for him.Jim would have celebrated his 100th Birthday this year . All the photos were taken either out on the road in the final 4 or 5 years of operation,or at Cheddleton in the Spring/Summer of 1987..
