Lodge Coaches open day tomorrow
« on: March 23, 2019, 08:13:03 PM »
Sunday 24th March Lodges Coaches Classic Car Show Day.  High Easter. From 10 a.m. All classic, vintage and veteran vehicles welcome. Bacon rolls and refreshments available.
Not a bus rally but Lodges Museum will be open, worth a visit if you are in the area.

I dropped in at this event and took a few photographs. I was quite surprised how busy it was but this was because the ‘main feature’ was one of the ‘Vintage, Classic and Super car’ meets organised by the Colne Valley Classic and Vintage Club. There are four more events this year.
(See leaflet at: file:///C:/Users/My%20PC/Downloads/Classic%20Car%20Meets.pdf )

The first of my photographs may be seen via this link:

I too went along to this event (did not see you David) and managed to get this pic of FFS 867 the Burlingham Seagull bodied OB which they have recently completed restoration after they brought it out the shed for a photo call. The classic car meets are actually organised by Lodges not the Colne Valley Car Club who were just supporting the event.

Just a bit of nostalgia, Canham of Whittlesey had a similar vehicle - one of my early black & white pictures taken in June 1966 in Scaldgate, Whittlesey near their garage.

Re Coasthopper's question. There was a line up of deckers parked in tightly facing the garage which I didn’t record. I took a general photograph but the registrations are all out of sight (low down) so can’t be seen. I would be interested to know if they are the ex Blackpool buses.

I have been trying to attach the photo here but I have been having difficulty – file size I think. Here is a link to it:

Why don't you email them?

Good advice there Dick, Lodges are an enthusiast friendly company and proud of their fleet, I am sure they would supply you with a complete fleet list. Email: administrator@lodgecoaches.co.uk

Over 20 mainly Bedford Coaches attended the Lodge coach day at High Easter on Sunday 8th September.  Here are a few pics from the event

Not in the rally itself, it was predomniantly Bedford event with a few other types Bristol & Leyland. The Lodges active modern fleet was parked up out the back and did not feature in the event itself.
