I have a couple of books of showmen’s vehicles but my question is whether any book or listing/register exists that deals just with those that are ex buses or coaches?

Dredging up memories from the mid 1960s when I was at school in Harrogate, I recall an operator called Simpson of Ripon who had what I remember as a blue & cream Bedford SB RYG 609. They purchased an OB, JWT 848, in 1950 but may, of course, have had other, used, purchases.

All of the foregoing is subject to the vagaries of memory, but it might prompt recollections from others.

Simpsons had at least eight Bedford OBs as follows fwu 231, GWT 340, FYG 809, GWW 292, HWR 616, HWT 531, HWW 642 and JWT 848 all bought new. They also had at least four SBs 08/11/17 Destination Banner I have just bought a destination banner off a local bus but I’m not sure which route it would have been. The banner says "Stonnall via Aldridge" – anyone got any ide which route this would have been and the operator please?

Chris Smith Company wise there are four possibilities for local bus operators around Scarborough in 1962.

The bus was a Bedford OB livery as best I can recall was cream and blue.

George George, one coach operator who springs to mind is Murgatroyd of Thruscross.

Some links to photographs of the types follow: East Yorkshire Motor Services ran south to Filey, Bridlington and Hull.
