Eric Thompson Memorial Collection

A vehicle with a very interesting history! Tillings Travel PL9605, RWC608, Bristol FLF6B / ECW coach, CH37/18F.
Had been new to Eastern National as 1641 in April 1963, renumbered the following year to 2605. Moved to Tillings in March 1968 as T2605, back to EN as 2605 in February 1970, back again to Tillings in February 1971 this time as 9605 and reseated to CH37/16F the next month. Still with EN fleetname in this photo. Returned finally to EN in January 1973, once again as 2605. Re-engined to Gardener, rebuilt to H38/32F and converted to bus work as 2937 in July 1976. Then in June 1978 converted to open top (O38/32F) and renumbered to 2300. Lasted exactly four years in this condition before withdrawal and was sold for preservation.
