Crosville bus
Crosville bus
838AFM is a Bristol Lodekker. According to a notice in its window, it was in service with Crosville in the Crewe area from 1957 to 1988, latterly as a training vehicle. It is now privately owned and was on display at the annual transport festival in nearby Sandbach. Showing my age, I can remember using identical buses on my way home from school in the 1970s, even the distinctive sound of the engine.
Sandbach transport festival 2016
The transport festival has been an annual feature of the town since 1992. Originally held over the May bank holiday weekend, it is now on a weekend in April. It celebrates all forms of road transport from motorbikes to large lorries and buses, from veteran steam traction engines to the latest models. Sandbach was home to the ERF and Foden factories until the 1990s, and some of their products can usually be seen.
