Newbury 2

More pictures from the Newbury Rally organised by Bus & Coach Preservation Magazine
 One of my all time favourite coach designs is the Burlingham Seagull which was bodied on various chassis. Above is a Leyland version in Whittles livery and below a more unusual 1959 Guy Arab LUF in Harper Bros livery. 

 The King Alfred vehicles are based so far south that I rarely get to see any of them so it was a real pleasure to see the recently restored Leyland/MCW Olympic JAA708, leading 1959 Tiger Cub WCG 104 into the showground.
