Hants & Dorset TD895 HLJ44

    Newer Older

    Looking as shiny as a new pin is Hants & Dorset TD895 (HLJ44), a 1949 Bristol K6A. This bus had returned to Somerset the day before this photo was taken, just in time for the Crosville Bus & Steam Rally 2016, at which it took pride of place.

    About 18 months earlier I had driven this bus about 260 miles north to be completely refurbished and it was great to see it at the rally, resplendent with authentic period advertisements and destination blinds. The K6A is presented as it would have appeared in its first year in service, on loan to London Transport and based at Amersham garage.
